There are a few places on 1st Street that fit in the list, such as Wild Bills Long Bar, Goffys, Eagles Pub, Showies or the Saddle Inn Tavern, but if you get behind the wheel, and drive for about 20 minutes, to Spokane, you will certainly find more entertaining nightspots where you can party all night with friends.
