The Davenport Hotel faced the wrecking ball, but local entrepreneurs intervened and, in 2002, reopened the grande dame in all its Spanish Renaissance/ French neoclassical glory.
A 2007 restoration of the 1931 Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox uncovered original cut-glass stars on the ceiling and murals of swimmers and ballplayers in the men's lounge. Home to the Spokane Symphony, the Fox hosts international performers like the Moscow Ballet year round. Tickets $10-$70; 1001 W. Sprague St.; martinwoldson.com or 509/624-1200.

Grab an aftertheater bite
Scratch Restaurant, across the street from the Fox, stays hopping long past the final curtain call; order the local cheese plate. Or grab a booth and a burger at the Steam Plant Grill--if you can't find it, just look for the twin smokestacks.
