HERE ARE FEW PLACES in the Spokane area that take “reuse, reduce, recycle” to the level that Zola, a bar in the Sodo district, has


atempted. Walking in, you are struck by an eclectic vibe which comes, largely, from the salvaged materials that Dan Spalding, owner of Zola and a local developer, culled from local demolition sites, including tilt-a-whirl booths upstairs, from the 40s or 50s, as near as he can tell, as well as license plates and a large neon sign originally from Jim Dandy

Te Hummus and Greek Skewers ($8) offer an assortment of healthier options including whole garlic cloves, skewers of kalamata olives, grape tomatoes and cucumbers garnished with pesto and balsamic reduction, as well as a generous helping of hummus and lightly warm pita bread.
