Josh Wade, the owner of Nectar Tasting Room, said he hopes the Spokane wine tasting hangout opens by the end of the year.
"We've got our permits in and should be getting electrical, plumbing and HVAC work done this week," said Wade.
It's been about two months since Wade announced he's opening the room in the main floor of the 1889 Building, at 120 N. Stevens in downtown.
Moving forward took longer than expected. "It always takes longer," he said.

Wade plans on a soft opening the final weekend of December. He will have a formal opening on Jan. 7.
Nectar Tasting Room will serve as a satellite tasting area for five regional wineries. It will stay open Thursday-Saturday at first. Hours will expand as the business starts rolling, he added.
