#1762 - The Castle, Sedro-Woolley, WA - 4/21/2012

The Castle is yet another long-running bar location in Sedro-Woolley (see Mestizo, The Overflow, and Old Timers). Indeed it appears that the bar here, then Minkler Tavern, obtained the second liquor license issued in Sedro-Woolley after prohibition. (SRJ)  It appears to have been The Castle for many years.  It was "Moe's Castle" from 2000 to 2005, then run under variaous names including "Cues and Brews" and "Dusty's" until it was restored as the "Castle" at the start of 2011. It was the last tavern in S-W before beginning to serve spirits under the current owners.  (Although the 1948 Polk Guide lists The Castle at a slightly different address, 712 Metcalf, but listed at 708 in the 1960s throught the 80s.)

It gives few hints of its age today. It is a fairly large bar that obviously has some substantial live music events, and the smashed remains of mirrors and such in the bathrooms evince some boisterous times.
