Bars & Cafes
Established in 1930, the Checkerboard Bar has been an integral part of the neighborhood. This prohibition-era watering hole will keep you entertained with pinball games, chess, checkers, pool tables, dartboards, karaoke and live music. Though they serve other spirits, their beer selection is impressive. Choose from Shock Top's Lemon Shandy, Orangutan Pale Ale and Kokane Gold to enjoy the happy hours.
Big Daddy's Bar & Grill offers appetizers, breakfast, burgers, dinners, a late night menu, sandwiches, salads, soups and wraps. There is also a casino and bowling at this location.
This sports bar has a wide fan base in the city of Spokane due to the friendly atmosphere and bartenders, great service and quality food. Belly up and watch your favorite team play while you sip on any number of beverage options from microbrews on tap to wine to a variety of liquor options. Friends and strangers come here to mingle and party.
Love the smell of fresh baked bread first thing in the morning? Then drop in here for an espresso and a quick breakfast. Get 13, a bakers dozen, of strawberry or garlic parmesan bagels. With 14 regular, 18 specialty, and 11 crusty breads, plus more than 30 sweets, there is something to delight every customer. Try a Charlie Tuna Sandwich--tuna, Swiss, lettuce, tomato, and sprouts on some Oregon Herb bread-- or peanut butter and jelly on Apricot Almond. Sandwiches and harvest specials are also available.
This is a smoke free southern style watering hole with Cajun cooking, Bayou brew and Mardi Gras dancing. Get a good laugh during Wednesday night's comedy show, dance the evening away Thursday through Saturday or calmly watch the Spokane River pass you by. Entice your taste buds with a small snack platter, house salad or get one of the Louisiana specialties from the grill or pan. Then sit back and swallow an in-house ale, a Cajun cooler or a blazing bayou beverage. To get your groove moving try the Irish Cream and hot chocolate. Segmented rooms make it an ideal spot for a business lunch or formal dinner. Separated by brick wall facades, each room is distinctively decorated to look like different New Orleans districts.
Bright and friendly, this bar - once voted one of the top 25 sports bars in America - is a place where in the evening, you can take your family for a meal and at night, you can have a few pints with friends and watch the latest game. The menu is limited - mainly burgers and sandwiches with a few steak and pasta options - and the drinks are good, if a little on the pricey side. Drop by for a pint, and enjoy some friendly Spokane hospitality.
Located on East Sprague in downtown Spokane, the Jones Radiator is set in a former garage and has retained much of its quirky decor. If you are looking for a classy bar to drink, then this place is definitely not for you. Whatever the bar lacks in its decor is made up by its extensive selection of ales, which many visitors and avid drinkers have proclaimed to be nothing less than divine. If you thought your visit to the bar will be restricted to just drinking, then you'll have to think again as it hosts a number of blues and rock concerts throughout the year. Open till late on most nights, you are in for a great time at this strangely charming bar.
Fast Eddies is a typical sports bar - lots of televisions, a challenging drinks selection and a menu of good basic pub food. It's a great place to grab a satisfying lunch or enjoy a game with friends. It gets pretty rowdy - it's popular with students - but that's all part of its charm. If you're lucky enough to visit on your birthday, spin the Birthday Wheel for the chance to win $100. Call for opening hours.
Red Lion BBQ & Pub is the favorite among locals for great food and sports watching. Happy hour is a hit and can get pretty crowded but the service is fast and the beer is cold. Whichever team you root for you will always have fun with the lively, energetic crowd that frequents the Red Lion. Trip-tip, salmon, ribs and chicken are their specialty and their side dishes make you feel like you are at a backyard barbecue.
It's easy to be a fan of this American sports bar with its bit of European zest. Sounds of soccer and baseball games blend with trophies and flags from various countries in the pub-like atmosphere. Wine-broiled chicken breast and German sausage sandwiches, served with a side of fried bread and honey, are succulent dishes sure to satisfy any stomach. If you're in a hurry, get some barbecued ribs or chicken to go. Expect to spend between $10 and $20 for a satisfying dinner and a few drinks.
This perky, colorful coffee shop is a great place if you want coffee on the run but you don't want to sacrifice quality. The coffee is roasted by Dutch Bros themselves, ensuring freshness and quality. There are also many quirky combos; get your coffee with Dutch chocolate blend milk or chocolate macadamia nut flavor. Call for opening hours.
The menu boasts being voted Spokane's best. It's hard to argue when Kahlua coffee warmers cause newcomers to feel welcome. If a Hibernian corned beef sandwich or an O'Caesar's salad with a pint of Guinness aren't enough to whet your appetite, then get your fill with a one pound Big "O" Burger. Remember to nail a dollar bill with your name on it to the wooden wall to become an honorary O'Doherty.
