WELCOME TO The lookout

“The name Lookout is both emblematic of the fact that we’re always looking for amazing products, but also you have this amazing lookout,” Ekins says, referring to the view from the windows and the 150-square-foot patio featuring views of the Monroe Street Bridge with the Spokane Falls underneath it, the Spokane County Courthouse north of the city center, and Mount Spokane far off on the horizon.

“We’re having fun playing with that. It’s sort of tongue-in-cheek, but fits the mark of the space and intention of what we’re doing here,” he says.
