Washington’s Oldest Bar Turns 127 This Year, Still Slinging Drinks
Washington State's oldest bar actually a Saloon has had the same name and it's doors have been open for an astounding 127 years!
The Brick Saloon was established in 1889 in the sleepy little town of Roslyn. The bar has a colorful history. Early Roslyn was a coal mining town or a company town with most residents working for the Northern Pacific Coal Company.
The Brick is called the 'Brick' because it is constructed using 45,000 bricks has a jail in the building and is billed as the as the oldest continuously operating tavern in the state of Washington. There is also a fully functioning running water spittoon. I know this because I actually visited the Brick a few years ago!
Side note: if you watched the 1990's TV show Northern Exposure the Brick was featured in several episodes!
