From Our Editors

Opening at the close of Prohibition in 1933, it's said that The Checkerboard Tavern owns the longest continuously operating liquor license in the state. Despite this unique claim to Washington history, the establishment isn't afraid to break with tradition. This formerly beer-only bar has recently expanded to serving spirits, which regulars enjoy as they play pool, dominoes, and, of course, checkers. And in the kitchen, you'll find cooks cooking italian sausages dressed with sauerkraut and bacon cheeseburgers capped with guacamole. There are personal pizzas as well, made with crusts from local bakery Rizzuto.
