#2272 - John's River Lodge, Aberdeen, WA - 9/7/2013
The John's River Lodge is listed in Aberdeen, but it's really quite a ways from Aberdeen proper, and considerably closer to Westport, sitting on the west side of state highway 105, about a thousand feet from where John's River tumbles toward Grays Harbor. The bar there is packed with personality and artifacts aggregated over the years, with a collection of t-shirts hanging from the ceiling and assorted knickknacks all around. Jeff Kuni, the current owner, is a very friendly host. Jeff's dad purchased the bar in 1976 -- Jeff recalled from memory that it was on this very day of that year (Sep 7). Outside is a great old tavern sign that came from the old Bright Spot, on south G Street in downtown Aberdeen. If you like dive bars with lots of character, this is a must stop when you are in the area.
