Power of Place #29 | Once Upon a Blue Moon – Timothy Dooley

Pull up a bar stool and join us in this episode for a conversation with Timothy Dooley-regular, bartender and now owner of the historic Seattle tavern, the “Blue Moon.”

Founded in 1934 just after Prohibition to serve mostly college students, the Blue Moon has since been serving up a heady mix of politics, poetry, visual art, and live music, while building community spanning generations. Come learn the lore of Seattle’s landmark watering hole.

“I’ve talked to people from all over the world and people have said there’s not really any place like this: People from New York; people from London; people from other parts of Europe…say this place is special. We have had visitors come in from all over the world and they say just that.” -Timothy Dooley
