Spokane's inviting landscape, plentiful shops and restaurants, and world-renowned museums all make for some great daytime activities. But when the sun goes down in the Pacific Northwestern sky, it's definitely time to hit the town! And you won't have to look far to find the ultimate nightlife destination for your nocturnal pursuits. Whether you feel like checking out a great live band, dancing in a glitzy club or just hanging out with friends, you're sure to find a Spokane nightspot that offers the fun and excitement that will make your night a truly unforgettable experience.
Sometimes, the feel and atmosphere of a place is more important than its cosmetic features. Such is the case at Mootsy's
. This unassuming nightlife destination isn't fancy, as the worn bar stools and lone pool table prove. But when you walk in, you're treated like a long-lost friend. Choose from some of the best microbrews that include Northern Lights and Moose Drool, plus, depending on the night you drop by, there's live music that suits the mood of Mootsy's perfectly.

Sometimes, you're in the mood to grab a big mug of beer and keep filling it up all night long. If tonight is one of those nights, then head to the appropriately named Viking Tavern
. This nightlife venue has a long, 30-year tradition in Spokane of being a favorite adult hangout where fun, frivolity, and beer abound. The Viking's bar, as you might guess, boasts an impressive selection of over 100 bottled beers and 35 beers on tap. This is one of those "old English"-styled pubs that offer a literal world-tour of some of the best beers ever made. And the Viking knows a thing or two about satisfying a hungry appetite, too, as its menu features an excellent range of items from lighter fare like salads and appetizers to burgers, sandwiches and lots more. These are just a few of the very convincing reasons why the Viking Tavern is regarded as the best place in Spokane for beer!

Fasteddies All Purpose Pub
is aptly named. This is the perfect nightlife stop when you and your friends are either heading out for a fun evening or wanting a few drinks and some munchies after the game before you call it a night. The fact that Fasteddies is located across from the Spokane Convention Center virtually guarantees that the crowd from whatever big event is happening will drop in to this low key but charming little bar. And aside from featuring an impressive selection at the bar, their menu offers some very delicious choices like burgers, sandwiches, appetizers and lots more.
