This is a tiny, triangular pub that is a vestige of the historic Triangle Hotel and Tavern. It is one of a handful of Seattle bars that pre-date Prohibition, and is one of three remaining "Triangle" bars in Seattle. In addition to Prohibition, it's time as a tavern was further interrupted when it was a Western Union branch office, sending messages to the Cherry Street headquarters via brass, pneumatic tubes.
It is casual and neighborly except before and after ballgames at the nearby stadiums when it is overflowing. For football games they will open the downstairs portion. For additional historical/dating notes, see Seattle's Oldest Bars.
