What’s the inside of the Sapphire Lounge like? This photo shows the layout

Sometime in May, Spokane downtowners get to test out the Sapphire Lounge, a small-bite eatery set inside the new bar area of the Hotel Ruby, 901 W. First.

An item on the new lounge, being financed and managed by Ruby owner Jerry Dicker and executive chef Jeremy Hansen, ran last week in The Spokesman-Review.

That story summarizes the food and beverage plans of Hansen, who also is executive chef at popular Spokane restaurant Sante.  Dicker also explains the goal of the Sapphire, being a way to add an intimate place for downtown visitors to grab a memorable bite and a stylish beverage.

Here is a photo showing the relatively tiny inside of the Sapphire Lounge. Mauer Construction, of Spokane, is the general contractor.

Total square footage is under 1,000 square feet. The kitchen is in the cramped, opposite corner from this point of view. The bar will be directly behind the half-height metal drywall studs.
