The windows are covered and work has begun in earnest on downtown Spokane’s Flatstick Pub, a casual craft beer pub with a nine-hole miniature golf course, according to city permit data.
Permits for work valued at $700,000 have been issued for interior improvements at The M building, 612 W. Main Ave., the former Macy’s building that was largely converted into residential space.
The pub is taking the westernmost ground-floor space in the building, which is nearly 10,000 square feet.
Spokane natives and brothers Sam and Andy Largent founded Flatstick Pub in Kirkland, Washington, in 2014. They’ve since opened locations in Pioneer Square and South Lake Union in Seattle, with another expected to open in Tacoma this year.
Besides mini golf, the pub will feature golf-themed games invented by the Largents. Duffleboard is a tabletop golf game with a hand-held putter. Stick Putt is like Skee Ball with a putter. Ball Jockey is similar to air hockey.
The project’s general contractor is Baker Construction, of Spokane. Atelier Drome Architecture, of Seattle, designed the project.
