Tractor Tavern in Ballard is one of the few timeless places left in Old Ballard. Shows there are always smiled upon. Good divey atmosphere, great stage, above mediocre sound and a good shady bathroom! The welcoming GENTLEMEN sign warms you up!
It’s a graffitied mess in the restroom. A classic trough that fits two comfortably. A stall is available, with a ton of interesting nooks and crevices on the ceiling. The boarded up walls fit right in!
My buddy Tim and I were reviewing and photographing the scene. We had our first model opt out of being included in the shoot. He objected to a photo of the back of his shirt being used while he was trough filling. Tim stated, “He is a proud member of the small member club. Give him a break.”
The Tractors toilets were good and trashy. Smelly in a good divey way. The bathroom is compact, and keeps with the theme of a no frills rock bar. I need to get my bands stickers up on the walls!
