SPOKANE, Wash. -

Sad news for Spokane sports bar fans: the owners of Scotty’s Doghouse and the Lucky Puppy have announced that they will be closing December 10.

"Scotty’s is proud not only in achieving their original goal, but also in the new accomplishments that occurred throughout the years including: friendships with customers, celebrating the Gonzaga basketball journey to the final four, adding The Lucky Puppy for a family friendly location and being voted Best Bar in Spokane two years in a row," the announcement on the Facebook page reads. 

Owners say they had been working toward a lease renewal and discussing purchase options with the landlord ,but "due to unfavorable terms has been unable to do so."

Prior to Scotty’s Doghouse, the location was famous for its long time business, the Bulldog Tavern.

The owner of Scotty’s Doghouse, Scott Wilburn, attended Gonzaga University and says he always enjoyed the Bulldog Tavern for its welcoming environment and friendly hospitality. 

Wilburn says he still hopes to leave a legacy and invites all those who frequent Scotty’s to visit his additional venture, Globe Bar and Kitchen located at 204 North Division, where Scotty’s staff will be joining him.

General Manager, Joey LaRocque says that this won't be the end for Scotty's. "We are looking for new locations to continue what we started,” the Facebook post reads. 

The post goes on to mention that the entire Scotty’s Doghouse staff wants to thank everyone for your patronage, kindness and endless memories.
