  • Big Sky's Tavern

    5510 N. Market St. Spokane - North

    509-489-2073

    Big Sky’s is something out of the past. Drink choices are limited to beer and wine, the jukebox pipes out Patsy Cline and you can only pay with cash. Take advantage of the free popcorn, darts or pool. In the summer, its back patio is a popular drinking and hangout spot. (July 2013)

  • The Brass Faucet Bar & Grill

    12525 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley

    509-926-0293

    On the outside the Brass Faucet looks just like an ordinary bar. Inside, TVs abound and dire sports fans sit and stare — it's a great and quiet neighborhood place to watch the game. (June 2013)
  • The Corner Club

    202 N. Main St. Moscow/Pullman

    208-882-2915

    This is the place run by and for people who love sports. But it’s not one of those sterile sports bars. No, the Corner Club is where you go to drink tubs of beer, wrap your arm around the stranger next to you and yell at the TV together. (July 2013)

  • Domini Sandwiches

    703 W. Sprague Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-2324

    The sandwiches are huge and untainted by anything remotely green or grown from soil. Ham, corned beef, salami, liverwurst and turkey are all sold by the sandwich, the basket and even the pound. Hot mustard, sweet mustard, horseradish, popcorn, RC Cola. Does it get any better? Service is quick, but these behemoths are built to last. They are also the foundation of a food dynasty, winning their 19th Best Sandwich Shop award in the Inlander’s annual Best Of readers poll. (July 2013)

  • Fiesta Mexicana

    1227 S. Grand Blvd. Spokane - South

    509-455-7117

    Family owned and family friendly, Fiesta Mexicana is frequently packed, but don’t let the parking lot scare you off. You never wait long here. Service is fast and attentive and the food is everything you’d expect from inland Tex-Mex, but with better-than-expected offerings of fish and vegetarian options. If you want to eat dinner amid a hive of activity with bottomless chips and salsa, this is your joint. (July 2013)
  • The Flying Goat

    3318 W. Northwest Blvd. Spokane - North

    327-8277

    Already a quintessential Spokane restaurant, the Goat offers some of the best Neapolitan style pizza in town and a drool-worthy collection of beers and wines. Everything here is made from scratch each day — from the dough, to all the sauces and dressings, and even some of the artisan meats are cured in-house. Toppings span from the classic to the gourmet. Don’t be afraid to try the Kiernan, with a medium egg resting on top of a mound of arugula, cheese and Italian sausage. Trust us. It’s delicious. Snag one of the many beers on tap or in bottles (or cans) to go along with your pie. (July 2013)

  • Goodtymes Bar & Grill

    9214 E. Mission Ave. Spokane Valley

    509-928-1070

    If you’re in the Valley and not going to the unbelievably hot lounge at Mirabeau Park Hotel, this is your next-best bet. Plenty of space to dance, and the fish tanks magically transform into a mood-inducer after a few shots off the cheap wells. (TLM)
  • Hi-Neighbor Tavern

    2201 N. Monroe Spokane - North

    509-325-9079

    It looks like a pleasant dive bar from the outside, but smells like taxi cab air-freshener and bleach inside. Everything else about the Hi-Neighbor is standard dive bar fare: cheap beer (cash only, mind you), a large beef jerky selection, buckets of pull tabs, sports on TV, pool tables and a team of leering regulars. Yeesh. (LS)
  • Jackson Hole Bar & Grill

    122 S. Bowdish Rd. Spokane Valley

    509-926-3876

    Sneeze and you might miss the Jackson Hole (or Jackson Hole II — we’ve heard both names). The bar serves standard beer and shots, hosts karaoke on Thursdays and has a few dart boards for the folks who like to game and drink. A reader board behind the bar advertises Jell-O on the menu, too: for $10,000. (February 2012)

    10605 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley

    509-893-2309

    Be OK with the fact that you will get lost trying to find Monkey Bar, a strip-mall, Cheers-type joint set off from the main drag.

When most Valley bars close up shop early, the Monkey Bar staff is committed to keeping the place open until 2 am nearly every night of the week. (February 2012)

It’s a breezy, friendly place that’s open for lunch, dinner and late-night snacking, and you can sing karaoke there any night of the week. Choose from a massive menu of pizzas, like the savory Beach Comber, with creamy garlic sauce, ham, bacon and pineapple. Also watch out for Monterey’s amazing specials, like half-off pizza day.

  • The Onion

    302 W. Riverside Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-747-3852

    Hearty burgers and towers of onion rings promise to send your family home fat and happy. Friendly, prompt service is a plus, and while the ’50s traditional roadside diner atmosphere might be a bit overwhelming for adults, the more things kids have to look at while they munch, the happier they (not to mention their parents) seem.

  • Peacock Room Lounge

    10 S. Post St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-789-6848

    If you’re in the mood for a scotch neat, say, or a Sazerac or a Ramos gin fizz, you’d want to order it in the sort of place where the bartender would nod knowingly, and say, “Very good, sir.” Bartenders at the Peacock Room know a great number of classic cocktails. All the martinis are doubles, and the gorgeous stained-glass ceiling is an experience in itself. (June 2013)
  • Poole's Public House

    101 E. Hastings Road Spokane - North

    509-413-1834

    Poole’s Public House is an excuse for owner Scott Poole to get back to his roots — both childhood and ancestral. Poole returned to his native north Spokane to open the English-inspired pub/restaurant/sports bar with a healthy menu. House favorites include the Devils on Horseback, an English recipe of dates marinated in soy ginger, stuffed with almonds and wrapped in bacon, but traditional meals, like bangers and mash and English po’ boy sandwiches, are popular, too. Don’t forget the dozen English brews and local beer on tap. (July 2013)

    1680 S. Grand Ave. Moscow/Pullman

    509-332-3675

    American College towns aren’t typically known for their classy restaurants with high-quality customer service and a commitment to hospitality. South Fork breaks that mold. Try the Cougar Gold Mac & Cheese, which uses a local and delicious favorite ingredient, and don’t forget to pay the full bar a visit. (July 2013)

    2012 S. Main St. Moscow/Pullman

    208-882-3344

    The Plantation is where young hicks go to party. The all-wood bar gets packed to the brim with Wrangler-donning young folk who square dance the night away, drinking pitches of pink mystery-booze called the “Plantation Special” on Thursdays. Even if you’re sans cowboy boots, you should expose yourself to the Plant immediately. (TH)
