Longtime Burien bar Elmer’s Pub has new owners, who are vowing to “clean the place up.”
Rachel Wilson and Kenny Wakefield bought the bar, took it over Aug. 1, and are currently doing remodeling work.
“We’re planning on re-opening the restaurant area,” Rachel told The B-Town Blog Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 8), “and make it a fully-functioning restaurant.”
Rachel has 10-1/2 years experience at another classic Burien bar – The Barrel Tavern – where she worked as bartender, manager and bookkeeper (look for a separate story on that bar soon).
“We’re also hoping to get on top of the music scene too,” she added.
According to Manta.com, Elmer’s has been in business in B-Town for 21 years.
The Stranger called it “a large, shabby biker/rocker joint with a live-and-let-live attitude and a short-order cook serving burgers and breakfasts until 11 pm.”
We think it’s a great, fun place, and we’re looking forward to seeing it be improved.
Elmer’s Pub is located at 15027 Ambaum Blvd SW; phone: (206) 439-1007.
