Absolutely the coolest store in Seattle. Located in a basement store in Pioneer Square, Bud's has anything and everything one could want when it comes to jazz music. Granted, you could probably get a bunch of this stuff off the internet these days, but that could never compare to the experience of shopping at Bud's and learning from the staff. Just walking through the door evokes the feeling that you're in on a secret. Scanning through the voluminous collection would take several enjoyable hours. If jazz is your thing, Bud's is a must-see place. Even if jazz isn't your thing, a stop at Bud's might change that.
