OUR STORY

Erected in 1928, with it’s first liquor license coming in 1933, the checkerboard boasts the oldest liquor license in the state of Washington.

The checkerboard has changed hands several times over the years, and our goal is to keep the 5 star dive bar tradition alive.

“Alcohol may be man’s worst enemy. But the bible says love your enemy.”
