Bio: Preserving the aesthetic of the old "Bit Saloon", the 2 Bit offers patrons a first class drinking experience in an antiquarian environment. However, the predominant difference of old and new lies in the cozy show room. Here you can bare first-hand knowledge of some of Seattle's best up and coming rock bands--your literally just a few feet from the performers. The acoustics are fantastic, the lighting preponderant, and the sound people manage to polish the occasional turd--you are guaranteed to witness a great live performance folks! The drinks and such are reasonably priced. Especially given it's Ballard location. Remember before gentrification when it was fun and cheap to drink in Ballard? Well, the 2 Bit Saloon fills that void generously! Most shows are 5 bucks, there's always cheap beer, stiff shots, and a staff that knows why your there--it's literally time to rock n' roll in this joint. And for all of you sinners, I mean smokers, there is a patio out back to fill your lungs with that stuff complete with drink-in-hand! Just a few minutes walk from historic Ballard ave., the 2 Bit Saloon is a wonderful bar to experience Ballard's not-so-distant past--the fun one!
