From the classic cocktail bar in an art-deco movie theater to the neighborhood Victorian turned into a foodie tavern to the 25-person nook decorated as a shrine to David Lynch, our nightlife runs the gamut from swank to sedate to just plain strange.
Spokane currently has two bars the LGBT community calls home, with a locally legendary nightclub reopening soon under a new generation of out, proud management.
No matter what sort of evening you’re up for, our bars and nightclubs have one thing in common: everyone is welcomed and appreciated for the swank/sedate/strange creature they are.
The establishments listed below are LGBTA Friendly:
|nYne Bar & Bistro|
415 W. Sprague Ave.
|The chic open space of one of Spokane's greatest nightspots is bringing in a diverse clientele of drinkers, dancers and music lovers. The juxtaposition of the sleek glass neon-green bar, exposed brick walls and half-court basketball hoop makes the venue all-at-once classy and laid-back. Enjoy a signature Dry Fly martini, a late-night menu of Angus beef sliders and spicy pork wings, or simply kick back with a beer. Member of Spokane's LGBTA Chamber of Commerce|
1401 W. First Ave.
|Straddling that no-man’s-land between downtown Spokane and Browne’s Addition, Andy’s is a good place to get a drink on your way downtown, on the way out, or both. Or simply hang out for a while. The big windows offer great views of slow traffic and the river’s gorge. With a happy hour every day from 4-7 pm, what's not to love?|
|The Baby Bar|
827 W. First Ave.
|Though the Baby Bar’s capacity is small, the best jukebox in town and the amiable staff and patrons make for what is perhaps Spokane's best overall bar.|
412 W. Sprague Ave.
|In the spot formerly known as the A Club, you’ll find Club 412, named after its address on Sprague Avenue. While its predecessor focused on live shows, Club 412 now uses its massive dance floor to get downtown partygoers partying. Down below at street level, you’ll find their sister bar, Shots|
|Durkin's Liquor Bar|
415 W. Main Ave.
|This place tips its cup to old-Spokane history while delivering a big city feel. and their full restaurant menu is both classic and creative.|
|Satellite Diner & Lounge|
415 W. Sprague Ave.
|The Satellite is a great diner and bar any time of day, but as a blinking beacon for late-night downtown revelers, it's a Spokane institution. Slide into this spot late at night, take a seat at the rambunctious bar and try one of their famous Bloody Marys. The Satellite serves up diner favorites at affordable prices at all hours, with a breakfast you have to see to believe. Not to mention it’s open 'til 4 am.|
