Novelty Trumps Size at Legendary Baby Bar –Spokane, Washington

Sometimes big surprises show up in small packages.  When I stumbled onto this cool little lounge in Spokane, Washington called the Baby Bar, I wasn’t too sure what to expect.  When I first heard about the place, my imagination ran wild. I wondered if I’d find toddlers sitting at the bar requesting apple juice fizzies with little cherries floating on top. Or perhaps the owner, Patty Tully, would serve my Cabernet in a Sippy cup—then offer me a bib since I have a history of spilling wine.  Neither happened, but I still enjoyed sipping Cab from the stemless wine glass while Tully kept me company with her undeniable sense of humor.  For those who prefer regular wine glasses, just ask, Wine Glassthey have that too.  You know you’ve got the right place when you see the unmistakable artistic rendition of the man who resembles Jesus—whether it’s him or not–I have no idea.  But it’s just one more quirky little find at the Baby Bar.

While I’m no fan of bucket lists, (they’ve become too cliché) if I had to recommend a novel spot to enjoy drinks , I’d say, hit the Baby Bar. But leave the kids and the pacifers at home. Tully has you more than covered with her big smile and warm hospitality.
