meet you friends and relax here
Hattie's Hat is a Seattle watering hole with a long sordid history. An old Ballard sailor bar, Hattie's has quite the history and hauntings to deserve its place in the historic register. I had the fortune to work there for just over a year right after the turn of the millenium. At that time, Hattie's was a haven for artists and musicians to connect with like minded spirits. Now it's sadly become a shadow of it's former self as the owners have been blinded by greed and lost sight of what made it such a cool place to get wasted and waste time in the first place. This mini 3' x 8' mural was created in the summer of 2001 to commemorate the best parts of the 'Hat'.
