  • 7th Rail

    1911 N. Maple Spokane - North

    509-325-7751

  • 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)
  • Bo Jacks Pub & Grille

    816 N. Fourth St. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-664-9957

  • Brown Derby Tavern

    808 W. Garland Ave. Spokane - North

    509-327-5742

    There are two bars along Garland Ave. One of them is the Brown Derby. Automatically, this makes it a magnet for everyone who lives between Buckeye and Longfellow. It also does pool tournaments on certain weekends. The only strike against it is the lack of hard alcohol, but with the rate we've been blacking out lately, we should really chill on the hard A. (LB)

  • Checkerboard Bar

    1716 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane - East

    509-535-4007

    Owners Ian Maye and Chris Wilde have made some big changes to the former Checkerboard Tavern. The bar now features a karaoke machine, covered outdoor patio, and a pizza oven. True to its name, Checkerboard also has a variety of games like pinball machines, dominoes, playing cards, and, of course, checkers. (July 2013)

  • CJ's Nightclub

    112 N. Main St. Moscow/Pullman

    208-883-3147

  • Corner Bar

    1628 N. 4th St. Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-667-9084

    Corner Bar is the perfect dive — clean and spacious, with enough intentional and unintentional kitsch to keep drinkers from boredom. Cheap-ass disco lights, Jolly Roger “CASH ONLY” sign above the register, obligatory karaoke shit-show, a hoppin’ crowd of friendly rowdies young and old, and — most importantly, dirt-cheap PBRs — make this a terrific gem of a dive.

    401 W. Riverside Spokane - Downtown

    509-321-7480

    Formerly Bowl'z Bitez & Spiritz.

  • Eichardt's

    212 Cedar St. Sandpoint

    208-263-4005

    One of Sandpoint’s best spots for live music and good beer, Eichardt’s has a steady stream of musicians playing blues, honky-tonk or jam band fare, while the taps are updated constantly with new micro and craft brews. The clientele is decidedly athletic — mountain bikers, skiers, snowboarders and other such adventurers — so don’t expect chili fries and football. (July 2013)

  • Geeks N Glory

    6710 E. Sprague Spokane Valley

  • Ichabod's East

    12116 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley

    509-922-8801

    A divey bar that attracts a loyal clientele of young Spokane Valley residents. Ichabod’s has pool, pull tabs and bartenders who sling cheap drinks. There always seems to be something on special, too. In the past, this Valley standard has been known for hosting metal shows, but that’s dropped off a bit as of late. (February 2012)

  • Jack & Dan's

    1226 N. Hamilton St. Spokane - North

    509-487-6546

    One of the prime spots — outside of the McCarthey Athletic Center — to watch a Zags game, Jack and Dan’s has long been known as a Gonzaga student, alum and sports fan hangout. Jack Stockton bought this Gonzaga-area mainstay in 1961 and operated it for 14 years before, with partner Dan Crowley, changing the name from Joey's to Jack and Dan's. Open since 1932, the neighborhood tavern is a quiet place to grab a bite of pub food during the day, and a bustling college hangout during weekend nights. (July 2013)
  • 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)

  • JJ's Tap & Smokehouse

    8801 N. Indian Trail Rd. Spokane - North

    509-467-4267

    Wanting to give JJ's a new look and more consistent theme, new owners Ian McQueen and Justin Oliveri decided to focus on smoking. The main features on the new food menu are handheld, including a Tri-Tip Dip ($14) with smoked provolone cheese, horseradish aioli and au jus on a hoagie roll, and BBQ Beef Brisket ($13) with crispy onion straws and coleslaw on a brioche bun. All sauces are made in-house, and many dishes feature local bread from Petit Chat Village Bakery. (July 2016)

  • John's Alley

    114 E. Sixth Ave. Moscow/Pullman

    208-883-7662

    If you like strong drinks and live music, John’s Alley is your place. Basically the only venue of its kind in the Moscow/Pullman area, John’s Alley hosts regular live music — both local and touring acts. Have fun and dance, or play those deer hunter video games. (July 2013)
  • Litz's Bar & Grill

    204 E. Ermina Ave. Spokane - North

    509-327-7092

    If you’re bored at Litz’s, there’s something wrong with you. A favorite hangout of Gonzaga students, Litz’s boasts an outdoor sand volleyball court, pool tables, arcade games, shuffleboard, beer pong, karaoke, trivia and other fun activities. There’s always some sort of drink special and the pub food is made from scratch. Try the sweet potato fries with gorgonzola. (July 2013)
  • Mootsy's

    406 W. Sprague Ave. Spokane - Downtown

    509-838-1570

    Mootsy’s is Spokane’s quintessential rock dive. The walls are covered in concert posters, the beer is cheap and the music is almost always loud. But even if a show isn’t going on, swing on by for anything from a craft beer to a cocktail. There are also beer specials, including $2 pints on Friday evenings and $1 PBRs on other occasions. (July 2013)
  • Players & Spectators Events Center

    12828 E. Sprague Ave. Spokane Valley

    509-489-4000

    Players has everything gamblers need to make a day of it: a casino with a poker room, a bowling center, Fireside Room lounge and a restaurant.
  • Red Lion BBQ

    126 N. Division St. Spokane - Downtown

    509-835-5466

    Red Lion BBQ is known for strong drinks, great wings and an incredibly casual atmosphere (not exactly a first-date venue). This legendary sports bar also is a non-official gathering place for University of Montana alums... unless there are other people who go to a bar to watch the Grizzlies. Unique in that this place stays open well into the late-night hours, the Red Lion serves barbecue standards like tri-tip and ribs, but they also do salmon and a long list of hot sandwiches. (July 2013)
  • Rick's Ringside Pub

    921 W. Garland Ave. Spokane - North

    509-324-9718

    If there’s anything better with a bar than good food, it’s a bar with good food within walking distance. Rick’s is to the Garland District what the Elk is to Browne’s Addition: casual and smack dab in the middle of a residential area. It’s a classy dive with pool, ping pong and food competitive to the big daddy of Spokane bar food, the Swinging Doors. (BT)
