#2534 - Irv's, Spokane, WA - 5/24/2014

"And a note to out-of-towners who end up at Irv's: Gay Spokane is trapped in 1999. They will not notice your clothes-that-fit and non-tragic vibe. Enjoy!" (Davide B., Yelp)

Irv's was a gay dance club with a diverse crowd and regular drag shows. Since this visit it was purchased by a new owner and was renamed "Stray," retaining the basic decor and events, but Stray also closed 15 months later.

There have been bars at this location since at least shortly after prohibition. It was listed as the Reno Beer Parlor in 1934, then the Senate Beer Parlor in 1935, which it remained into at at least the 40s.
