Here is a look at the most recently filed liquor license applications around Spokane County. Because they are only license applications that means these may not be new businesses. Although it can be a pretty reliable source.
All are acquired from the Washington State Liquor Control Board-
One Tree Hard Cider
An already open hard cider business may be moving(?) . This based on their application to relocate their liquor license from 9608 E. Montgomery Ave. #3 to 9514 E. Montgomery Ave. #25 , Spokane Valley.
New Boundary Brewing Co.
This new microbrewery has a license application in Cheney at 505 1st Ave.
A new liquor license application has been filed for a business called Le Brothers in Spokane Valley. However, the application is for 12012 E. Sprague Ave Suite 1 which is already a Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Thinh.
Perhaps some changes are coming?
Listed as a tavern for beer and wine Cat House Partners' application is for 1517 W. Jackson Ave. , Spokane.
Guessing by the name, this may be a parent company for a future bar and/or restaurant. Also, the address is in a residential neighborhood so this will probably be someplace else?
FBL Arts & Wine Studio
FBL is filing for 3111 N. Monroe St in Spokane. This business will be going in with a business called The Bag Lady, which is a thrift store near N. Monroe and Euclid.
The FBL stands for Fancy Bad Lady, and other then that there isn't much info yet other then this will probably be a similar business concept to Pinot's Palette in Downtown Spokane.
Savage Boar Spirits
A new craft distillery is in the works and has filed their liquor license recently for their new space in Airway Heights. Savage Boar Spirits plans to open at 11902 W. 21st Ave.
This one is a defiantly confirmed new business as they already have a Facebook page. Which, can be found here-
