Good crowd and music, Not much sitting room, ok food, but good selection of micro-brews.


Let me preface this by saying I don't get out to live music much these days. I used to live in Austin, Texas and we saw shows all the time there, but it's been a while. That sai...

Music for all sorts 8/21/2005

The Tractor Tavern is a welcoming bar, with people of all ages welcome. Catering to fans of good music, the Tractor is a place performers are passionate about. The stage has a feeling reminiscent of an elementary school gym, but the performers are anything but elementary. Offering seating on some nights, dancing on others, the Tractor morphs into its skin almost nightly (roots rock, folk, country, Celtic). more

Solid Bar 8/20/2005

The Tractor Tavern is a great place to see a show in Ballard. They get good bands, both local and national. The Tractor is one place that would benefit from a smoking ban - it can get pretty hard to breathe inside - but overall it is a great neighborhood bar. more

Alt-country heaven, with good beer 8/16/2005

Located in Ballard's Old Town, the Tractor is a great place to take in a show. Although any genre may be playing on a given night, it's the place to see roots, folk and alt-country music. With its medium-small performance space, cozy bar and room for a crowd, it's a good venue for this type of music. The bar pours good beer for reasonable prices and has a (very) limited snack menu. Check it out when there's a good band. more

Tractor Tavern Rules! 9/7/2004

This is my favorite music venue in town. The lineup they get is fantastic (if you like folksy,rockabillie type music)- you can just show up any night and likely be pleased. It isn't pretentious like some venues, smoking is prohibited on the music side of the room, and corn stalks hang from the ceiling. Hank Williams Wednesdays are a hoot--covering tunes and offering a two step dance venue. You can catch dinner in Ballard (La Carta, Madame K's) and make a night of it. more

  • The Scene
    It's a roomy, no-nonsense joint in historic Ballard, far from the glitz of downtown. Local musicians favor the place for its emphasis on the music and appreciation for the past....
