A quick stroll across the bridge will take you right to Campbell’s Pub and Veranda. With a daily happy hour from 2-5pm and cozy fireside tables, you will want to stop in to Campbell’s historic pub. They have an extensive wine list with many Lake Chelan wines to choose from as well as over 100 whiskeys from around the world to sip and savor! Their specialty cocktail list changes seasonally and is built with lots of thought and intention. We highly recommend trying one of their 4 specialty Old Fashioneds currently on the list.

This 21+ spot is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Layla’s is a sophisticated, upscale stunner in the heart of downtown Chelan. Their intoxicating ambiance and thoughtful cocktail list are not to be missed. We recommend trying the Chelan Apple Mule – Tito’s, lemon juice, house made apple beer syrup topped with ginger beer. We’re drooling over here. A notable runner up is their espresso martini – Blue Spirits Espresso Vodka (distilled with Lake Chelan water), Kahlua, and cold brew coffee topped with coffee beans…the tastiest way to end the night! Be sure to try some delicious food from the kitchen as well. Their signature banh mi tacos and chicken lettuce wraps are fan favorites.
Stormy Mountain Brewery and Public House

If you’re in the mood for a refreshing ice cold beer, look no further than this brewery. Bring the whole family down for some great BBQ and enjoy their awesome tap list. Proudly serving house beers with 10 rotating taps, there is no better place to sample a variety of locally crafted beer. If you’re in the mood for food, their pub pretzel pairs deliciously with a pint, or for heavier fare, they have a variety of BBQ menu items. So swing on by Stormy Mountain and enjoy their comfy laid-back environment.
Marcela’s Cocina Mexicana

With a combination of family recipes made with the freshest ingredients, homemade tortillas, and Lake Chelan Valley’s best margaritas…you will want to add Marcela’s Cocina Mexicana to your list. Whether you sit at the bar or in a booth, the drinks at Marcela’s are truly one of a kind. Although we are partial to the shaken pineapple jalapeno margarita, they have an extensive drink list for any adult beverage you may be in the mood for. Feeling like having a little extra fun while on vacation? Try one of their drinks in a bucket or to take it further – try the Big MamaRita…36 ounces of delectable fun on the rocks.
Whether you want a glass of Lake Chelan wine, an icy cold beer, or a complex handcrafted cocktail, downtown Chelan will meet every drink need! So ditch the car, no need for Uber, and take a short walk from Grandview to the heart of downtown.
