You won’t get served a shot at the 1210, which houses beer and wine only, but you might get served a borderline-unethical game of pool from someone with neck tattoos and a habit of nightlong chain smoking. Although the 1210 plunges about as deep as a dive bar can go without requiring a SCUBA license, patrons looking for a relaxed night should appreciate the low-key atmosphere and the German Shepherd that drinks beer with regulars.

The 219 is one of those places you were scared to walk by as a kid. And there's a good reason for that. Last time we were there, a drunk (insanely so) woman accidentally burned us with her cigarette. We recoiled in pain and said, "Whoa, ha! Geez! No harm done!" At which point she flicked the thing -- still lit -- into our face. Which is awesome, in a way. And if you can handle it, the 219 is the best full bar dive in Sandpoint that isn't completely overrun with tourists. (LB)
Located in the historic Greenbriar Inn, 315 Martinis and Tapas is an elegant answer to happy hour. Open at 3:15 pm Tue-Sun, enjoy small plates and drink discounts until 6 pm, or settle in next to the cozy fireplace for dinner (or the candlelight patio in summer) and stay for a full dinner. This progressive Coeur d’Alene bar and restaurant makes its own simple syrups (lemon and rosemary, jalapeño), infusions (bacon vodka, horseradish vodka, ginger vodka) and an assortment of bitters (five-pepper, huckleberry, aromatic, ginger-pear and lemon).

4,000 Holes is bigger than ever with more CDs, records and everything else under the sun. Obscure Beatles releases count among their biggest sellers. The self-described premier rock n' roll superstore, the shop specializes in all things rock. It could be time for a name change though, because there are clearly more than 4,000 albums for sale. Special orders are welcome.

With a total of seven pool tables, this bar is about two things: Drinkin’ and shootin’ pool. The Rail is dark, lit up mainly by pinball machines and the jukebox, but the food is tasty pub grub. Build your own burger ($8), or try the shake and bake sirloin steak ($9.50). Quench your thirst with a drink from the full bar while picking up a game of pool. (June 2013)
