#2235 - Green Lantern Tavern, Copalis Beach, WA - 7/15/2013

Green Lantern Pub, Copalis Beach, WA
The Green Lantern Tavern/Pub lies across the street from the southernmost point of the Copalis River, and about 2,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean, and the southwest coast of the Olympic Peninsula. In 1805, Lewis and Clark estimated the population of Copalis Indians here at 200 in 10 houses. It is now home to about 350 people, but swells to 1,500 during the few days a year when people can legally dig for its famous razor clams.

The Green Lantern is a homey, medium-sized bar filled mostly with locals and long-time regulars, mixed with tourists during the summer months. I haven't much narrowed down how old the bar is -- I've seen a comment that it's been around since the 1930s (the building was constructed during prohibition) -- but one of the locals told me that this was not always the current name, and in fact the building was previously red. It's a nice bar serving diner comfort food, and the feeling that it seems to pop up in the middle of nowhere adds to the attraction.
