Bars and Pubs

Anyone can buy alcohol from a store but where can you find music, art, culture and friends? A great bar speaks to heart of a community.


It all depends on what you’re looking for…handmade cocktails prepared by wizard bartenders? Head to Bon Bon, or The Davenport Hotel’s Peacock Lounge. Craft local brews and rare imports? Check out the taps at Post Street Ale House and Manito Tap House. Award-winning Washington wines? Nectar Tasting Room draws from some of the best of Wine Country. Live music in an awesome atmosphere? The Bartlett—founded by two local musicians—brings in phenomenal local talent and national touring acts. And if you want to end the night with some dancing? Check out Zola and Northern Quest Casino’s Impulse.


Ever wonder the difference between a bar and a pub? A pub serves food. And nothing says Northwest like a hearty meal and a craft brew. The Elk Public House and its five sister restaurants offer classic pub fare that’s kept people coming back for decades. O’Doherty’s brings rich Irish drink and food traditions to downtown Spokane. A comprehensive beer list pulling from 55 kegs can be found at Manito Tap House. Saranac Public House applies a progressive philosophy to traditional pub fare with organic food sourcing and vegan menu choices. And No-Li Brewhouse serves up great grub from Red Lentil Burgers to mouthwatering Osso Buco along with their popular craft brews.
