The Lantern opened in May of 2009 and it's quite possibly the tiniest tavern in town. Owned by Laura Paisley and Jeff Nordvall the place features four different beers on tap and 26 other beers in cans and bottles. "We like to call it a micro bar because the size, and, well, we have micro brews," said Paisley. "We try to have an IPA, something light and something dark, like a stout, on tap so there's something for everyone." The Lantern features cheese plates from Saunder's Cheese Market and peanuts - and it's okay to bring over a pizza from Perry Street Pizza across the street.

"The neighborhood has really embraced us," said Paisley. "We are unique in a way that people walk here and bike here - you don't see that so often in Spokane. Yet."
