Bio: Opened in 1933 on the heels of prohibition, the Checkerboard has the longest continuous liquor license in the state of Washington. Formally Checkerboard Tavern, we decided to break tradition and serve Spirits after nearly 80 years. Come take part in a century of laughs, love and great times! Our goal is to be the biggest, little bar in Spokane. We have a neighborhood bar feeling with easy access to downtown & freeway. Never any beef here, come as you are! We offer a variety of games including "Revenge from Mars" and "Theatre of Magic" pinball machines & a pool table, as well as the traditional Dominoes, playing cards, Chess, and of course, Checkers. Live music frequents this bar & we will always be booking some exciting shows. Hand crafted local micro brews on drought. We have 10 handles featuring a rotating selection that includes local brewer legends Budge Brother's Spokamber 509. We also stock Bud Light on drought and a wide variety of bottles and cans. Domestic beer, imports, wine and spirits. Our outdoor smoking/drinking area is lovely all year; enjoy a hot drink by the fire place, or a cold beer on a hot summer night! Hope to see you here!!
