White Horse Saloon (Arlington, Washington)

White Horse Saloon, 304 N. Olympic Avenue Arlington Washington USA  Phone 360-435-3122.  We stopped in on a Friday for a glass of wine and some lunch, to our surprise they don't serve any food but I will get to that later.   The building is 70 years old, but there has been a bar there for 50 years.  It is located on the main drag in downtown Arlington which is very quaint. We met the owner, Barb who was wonderful and we had a great visit with her.  She bought the bar a few years back and closed it down for 6 months for renovations, much to the surprise of the previous owner. She showed pictures of the renovations and the mess that it was in.  The renovations turned out well!  They have a large sit up bar that seats 16 comfortably.  The Saloon has a full sized shuffleboard, a pool table and get this a ping pong table. A ping pong table in a bar, for me that is a first, great idea!  There are 3 high bar tables that each sit 4.  In the back they have a nice moose head mounted on the wall.  3 nice flat screen TV's for watching sports or what ever else.  As for beer, they have 12 different kinds on tap as well as bottled beer.  It is a fully stocked bar with all the hard liquor you would expect to find. 
As I said they don't serve food but the restaurant next door, the Blue Bird serves food and will deliver it to you in the bar.  The White Horse Saloon has menus for the Blue Bird.  I had a grilled ham and cheese on sourdough and it was very good,  My wife had the BLT on sourdough and also very good.  They have live music on the weekends. 
The cooler still retains the old wood door and is a very nice touch.  I enjoyed my stop here and would recommend it to anyone in the area looking for a drink and food from the Blue Bird!
