You’re probably not going to happen upon the 2 Bit Saloon. It’s located just outside the main area of Ballard, seeming more like a neighborhood hangout, but you’ll know it when you see the giant, brightly lit horse head on the building. Most likely if you end up there, you’re there because someone you know told you about it, or you’re there because there’s a band playing, or it’s one of the venues Seattle Weekly commandeers for Reverb Fest. I was there for Reverb Fest and to see The Spinning Whips, always an excellent band. They next play the Rendezvous on December 3rd.
