Located on Main Street in downtown Walla Walla, Public House 124, is in the heart of it all. This craft cocktail bar specializes in seasonal beverages with fresh ingredients, and they make a very mean Negroni if that’s your beverage of choice. It’s a favorite for locals not only for imbibing but also for noshing. The eats here are just as good as the cocktails; favorites include the truffle fries, wings, and fried chicken sandwich.

If you’re looking for a strong drink in a dark bar, then look no further than Stone Hut Bar & Grill! They also boast some delicious pub fare here, with a very extensive hot sauce wall should you be looking to spice up your eats. There’s a fantastic covered patio if you want to enjoy a beautiful Walla Walla day alongside your beer, and plenty of TVs inside and out for rooting on your favorite team! We highly recommend the nachos or any of the burgers.

You’re guaranteed to run into at least one winemaker when you stop by local favorite The Green Lantern Tavern (referred to as simply “The Green” by locals). This eclectic, cozy space with an always busy bar has an extensive tap list and fantastic service. The fish tacos, Nashville hot chicken sandwich, and halibut & chips are a few local favorites; but it’s hard to go wrong here. Grab a seat, order a beer, and stay a while!
