The Corner Club at 202 N. Main Street in Moscow, Idaho is a cozy little tavern that is famous for offering 32 oz. tubs of beer if you are just interested in relaxing for a few hours to watch a game at this famous local bar. It has been around since 1948 and is now the favorite place to watch the University of Idaho Vandals play their collegiate rivals.
The Club has been featured in Sports Illustrated as one of the "Top 25 Sports Bars" and ESPN the Magazine has added it to their list of "99 Things To Do Before You Die". The sports bar is most famous for the "nail" that is placed 11'6" above the bar, which is where University of Idaho basketball star Gus Johnson reached when he visited the bar in 1963. Since then many have tried to match the feet and reach high enough to touch the nail and drink for free, but for years nobody was able to do it. That was until 1986 when Joey Johnson (coincidentally the same last name), a player from the College of Southern Idaho, visited the bar and successfully reached for the nail which was then raised a half inch higher.
The tavern has weekly specials including Peanut Night on Wednesdays and Ladies Night on Thursdays. Their Happy Hour lasts for three hours (3pm-6pm) Monday to Friday when you can get fifty cents off beer orders. When you are in the Northern Idaho area, visit this great town near the Washington border and make sure to stop in to the Corner Club to reach for the nail and drink for free!
