#2182 - Last Stand Diner and Saloon, Coulee City, WA - 5/24/2013

Update: The Last Stand closed sometime between mid-1990 and mid-2020.

I don't know anything about the history of the Last Stand Diner and Saloon, but it does have a side entrance for the lounge, which is usually a good sign.  Inside is a pretty typical dive bar, at the rear of a diner that seems to serve pretty good food. The bartender told me there's been a tavern there since "the early 1900s," but there are few vestiges of that sort of age.  The 1907 Polk Guide lists four saloons in town, without addresses, so it could easily be one of these.  I don't know how long it has been the Last Stand -- named after the annual Memorial Day Weekend Rodeo in town -- but it appears to have been "Grandpa Joe's Restaurant and Lounge" and "CJ's Ranch House Restaurant" in the not too distant past.
