This is the Irish pub where you dance on the tables! Every town needs one, but you better get there early to get in, get a table and avoid a cover charge.O'Doherty's is Spokane's only true Irish Pub (Gabby's is closed) complete with Irish jam nights (very fun). They have one of my favorite patios with a great view of Riverfront Park.
The food is good, the beer is better - O'Doherty's is a Spokane tradition frequented by a diverse crowd of, college students, business people and regulars. Celtic jam nite is every Tuesday. Throw back a pint and sing along.
And finally, what would a pub scene be like without tradition? O'Doherty's has one, called "getting nailed." You, too, can get nailed by standing at the bar (or on the bar) and belting out a song – an entire song that is. Then you write your name on a dollar bill and nail it to the wall. Your first drink is half-price – FOR LIFE.
O'Doherty's makes me wish I was Irish.
