The sandwiches at Brooklyn Deli are still the main draw, but you can't ignore their lounge.

As you enter Brooklyn Deli & Lounge in the late afternoon, you're presented with a choice. To your left: a full menu of hot and cold deli sandwiches, soups and salads. To your right: a bar that keeps cooking the full menu till midnight or later. It's a win-win.

The deli and lounge rolled out a new appetizer menu last week, complete with nachos, meatball sliders and mini naan-bread pizzas. The old standards remain, though, and the pastrami stacker sandwich and tomato parmesan soup remain the most popular with customers. Across the hall, enjoy $1 glasses of wine, micro taps and $3 wells for happy hour, Monday through Saturday from 3-6 pm and again 9 pm to close.

Where Brooklyn Deli is really breaking ground is on the event front. Every Wednesday features open mic comedy in the spirit of Whose Line is it Anyway? followed by karaoke; Fridays are live local music; and Saturdays boast the nationally renowned pub quiz Geeks Who Drink, its only Spokane location. The best part? There's no cover for any of it. ♦
