Dubbing itself as “The World Famous Brick Saloon," this pub is indeed the oldest surviving tavern in Washington state. It was featured in the television show Northern Exposure aired on CBS, in which it was depicted as a pub located in a fictitious Alaskan town named Cicely. It was established in 1889 and reconstructed in 1898 with 45 thousand bricks and was, therefore, renamed as The Brick. Today, it retains its historic charm and has become a favorite watering hole with locals and tourists alike. This bar is well-known for hosting fantastic live music events that feature well-known bands, replete with plenty of dancing and drinking. There are also shuffleboards and pool tables for entertainment. A historic jail cell in the building gives the perfect macabre touch to this popular pub.
