Save the Blue Moon

It might be a long time before it's safe for the Blue Moon Tavern to operate again, and we understand why. But the uncertainty is taking a dreadful toll on our financial health. Please make a gift to help keep Seattle's most infamous bar alive.

The Blue Moon has been a local University District haunt in Seattle since 1934. We have changed a lot over the years - but we have always been an independent, locally owned dive bar and we love our unique and diverse community. From eclectic open mic nights to opera on tap to themed comedy shows to a variety of local and touring musicians, the Blue Moon is proud to offer one of our fine city's most intimate and well-tread stages.

We usually depend on live music crowds to meet our revenue goals every week - and we don't have any illusions about the near-term safety of hosting live music OR crowds.

If we meet our fundraising goal, we can avoid permanent closure through the end of 2020. Help us get through this year, and we'll do everything we can to be there for you when it's once again safe to gather for a pint.

Please, if you are able to make a gift, send it now and earn some excellent nightlife karma <3
