This Stunning Washington Saloon Is A Carnivore’s Paradise
Spokane’s historic Liberty Building dates back to 1908, when it served as one of the Lilac City’s first department stores. And until recently, it was home to one of the most beloved restaurants in town. But as sorry as locals were to see Sante Restaurant & Charcuterie close, they’ve got a new reason to celebrate — the same owners opened Smoke & Mirrors Saloon in April in the Liberty Building, and it’s a fantastic (and beautiful) spot.
The historic Liberty Building is the perfect place for the Smoke & Mirrors Saloon.
Although the restaurant is new, it has a classic, timeless vibe that just wouldn't feel the same in a new building.
The eatery opened in April and is the latest venture for award-winning local chef, Jeremy Hansen, and his wife, Kate.
Kate and Jeremy operated Sante for 10 years before deciding to close it and open something new to fit in with Spokane's exciting and ever-changing restaurant scene.
This upscale pub is elegant, but the atmosphere is casual and unpretentious.
Jeremy and Kate have several other restaurants in Spokane, like Inland Pacific Kitchen and Biscuit Wizard, and each one definitely has their own unique identity.
Although Smoke & Mirrors does serve the classic charcuterie Sante was known for, the menu is definitely different.
They serve a special Burger of the Week, but you can get this delicious Saloon Burger every day.
The focus here is on meat and beer, which is as amazing as it sounds.
Smoke & Mirrors also serves a scrumptious daily brunch that's a carnivore's dream come true.
Choose from Biscuits & Gravy, Shirred Eggs & Pancetta, Maple Sage Sausage, and more.
Smoke & Mirrors Saloon is open daily at 10 a.m. (9 a.m. on weekends).
They're open until 2 a.m. most nights, although they close at 3 p.m. on Mondays.
Address: 404 West Main Avenue, Spokane, WA, 99201
