I am always in search of a place for grown ups to be able to sit and enjoy some great brews and be able to have conversations here in the North Idaho area.
What always happens is I find a place that has great Craft Beer choices, but it is just not a place to sit and hang out with friends and be able to have conversations. Or…I find a place that is good to hang out in, but the beer choices are minimal or they just don’t have any craft beer at all (why I have no idea!).
My recent find is Mulligan’s in the Best Western Coeur d’Alene Inn. If you have lived in the area for a long time you will remember that at one time Mulligan’s formerly known as Roxy’s was a hot spot in the area in days past. It is well past it’s Roxy days (thank goodness-pukers need not apply), but with the addition of a new GM to the hotel he is wanting to put Mulligan’s back on the radar. He has added a couple Laughing Dog Brews to his taps and is going to rotate in other regional craft brews in the future.
Now the beer choices are not elaborate, but at least they have started on the right path. So with some good brews on tap, decent food, and a quiet environment that you can sit and enjoy conversations with friends it just may be one of my new hang out spots. Oh…and did I mention they have a magician that is in the bar entertaining folks a few night a week?
What places have you found that you like to spend time in here in the North Idaho area? Maybe we need to get a list going!
