The owner of the Montvale Hotel will reopen the corner hangout formerly known as the Far West Billiards.
The Far West closed July 1 after 10 years in business, at 1001 W. First in downtown Spokane.
The plan was to lease the empty space to a new operator. That plan didn't take. The business will now be run as part of the Montvale.
It will be named Scout.
All that's holding up the opening is completing the paperwork from the city and getting a liquor license.
