Sprague Union District
East Sprague has a reputation. It wasn’t what locals would have ever considered a place to go. Hard work and a clear plan by invested business leaders ensured growth and a refreshed district. Once filled with dilapidated old storefronts, this area has come alive in the last five years, making it a destination.
The Union Tavern
Eat & Drink
Local favorite Bennidito’s Brewpub moved into its location on East Sprague just a couple of years ago, helping the district in its rejuvenation process. The pizzas are plenty and the craft beer flows. Sonnenberg’s Market & Deli, established in 1891, is the oldest meat market in Spokane. With a history like that, the butchers certainly know what they’re doing. They carry everything you could think of and make a mean sandwich.
We see in your future a trip to The Union Tavern. Located inside what was once the “Palmistry Building,” the cool hangout has everything from beer, wine, and spirits to typical tavern food. For a delightful dive bar experience, go to Sam and Dom’s. With pool tables and Bloody Marys everyone talks about, you can’t go wrong.
Get your just desserts at Spokane Cheesecakes. Make sure to sample the limón cheesecake with a vanilla-lemon crust. Grab a cappuccino at Cravens Coffee Company.
Two Women Vintage Goods
Blue Cat Vintage
Take your Cravens coffee to go and wander through some of the fun shops along the street. New Moon Art Gallery is a perfect place to start. The creative gathering place features the works of over 75 artists from around the region. For all things retro and vintage, try Blue Cat Vintage, ERA Vintage Home, Sprague Ave Vintage, and Two Women Vintage Goods. For a clean getaway, stop in at Greencastle Soap Company for some sustainably sourced, handmade soaps.
