Fantastic repurposed space! We grabbed a beer from the brewery in basement and walked around. Coolest brewery location we've ever seen! There's a restaurant too, but we were here for brewery.

It was probably cheaper for the utility to renovate this building to a new use than to tear down and remediate the site. Well, all of us benefit from this choice! This is a top-notch renovation of an old steam plant. The food is pretty...More

A lot of things from the original steam plant were used to make this a very unique atmosphere. Great food, drinks and service. We had the mushroom pizza and rockfish sandwich. Enough choices to satisfy all.

This is a one-of-a-kind place which makes the most of its industrial heritage - thawing frozen coal with dynamite ? Really ? Our food was excellent, the beer was delightful and we were very well looked after by Tad - a prince amongst servers. He...More

This was a unique experience to be able to dine in a former industrial steam plant in downtown Spokane. The renovation of this building is phenomenal! The large steel girders and boilers can still be seen when exploring this place. In addition to a restaurant,...More

Welcome to the historic Steam Plant, site of an award-winning preservation effort and a landmark Spokane destination. The Steam Plant was built in 1916 and provided radiant steam heat to over 300 buildings in downtown Spokane until it closed in 1986. Avista and Wells and Company renovated the building and re-opened it in 1999, preserving much of the original working plant. While you're here, be sure to take a moment for a self-guided tour. Narrative displays are located throughout this one-of-a-kind building. We hope you enjoy our distinctive approach to dining, in which we work with local farmers and ranchers to create dishes that celebrate the best our region has to offer.
