The new Hogwash Whiskey Den celebrates its soft launch Friday and Saturday.
The whiskey bar is located in the basement of the old Washington Cracker Co. building, 304 W. Pacific Ave.
Most of the wood in the dimly-lighted speakeasy-esque establishment is reclaimed. The ambiance is dark, masculine and den-ish – with booths, exposed masonry and pipes, and low-slung ceilings.
“Everything” is half price during the soft opening, according to the Facebook page for its sister restaurant, Inland Pacific Kitchen, located above the bar.
According to its website at ipkspokane.com, the restaurant is slated to open Dec. 1. The plan is to change the menu every month or two.
Menus will feature themes, small plates for under $20, and be “based on world cultures, stories (and) seasons,” according to the restaurant’s website.
Both IPK and the whiskey bar had been slated to open in summer. Construction delays pushed back the openings.
They’re the latest offerings from restaurateurs Kate and Jeremy Hansen, who also own Santé Restaurant and Charcuterie and Common Crumb Artisan Bakery.
The soft opening for Hogwash runs from 3 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
