Venerable! It’s a word I don’t use often but the Triangle Hotel & Bar (located down at the southern end of Pioneer Square next to the stadiums) deserves it.

This is definitely one of my favorite buildings in the city and it’s one that you don’t forget once you lay eyes on it. The Triangle Hotel was de signe

d by architect C. A. Breitung and built in 1910, having been inspired by the design and construction techniques of New York City’s Flatiron Building. As tidelands were aggressively being filled in around the area in the early 1900′s, the structure was unique for its triangular shape (at the corner of 1st Ave and Railroad Way S) and Italianate windows. The building’s ground floor bar space changed over to a Western Union branch in 1929 and the upper floors are said to have housed a brothel just as the Great Depression set in. In May of 1976 the Triangle was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and today the renovated building once again has a bar at ground level.

    I wonder what it’s like on the inside upper floors. I remember when they used to sell beers for the price of Dave Valle’s batting average. One of my favorites!
