No Spanking Allowed

If you require at least three types of bitters in your drink, you’ve come to the wrong place. Your bartender at Boots won’t be spanking mint over your mojito or whispering sweet nothings at your negroni.

Our bar has one of the best selections of fancy booze in Spokane, but we don’t do “craft” cocktails — we do well-crafted cocktails. Fresh-squeezed juices. A good, stiff pour. Housemade mixes, Worcestershire and sangria. A focus on the best of the season (don’t even thinking about asking for our house hot buttered rum in the heat of July). Prop yourself up at the bar, give us your parameters, and let’s see what we can come up with.
