BIZNOTE: New owners for Admiral Pub

Meet Michael Tomber and Billy Conwell, if you don’t know them already. They are the new owners of Admiral Pub (2306 California SW) and they’re making some changes.

Last week, they closed the pub for a few days to do some renovations and bring in additions including those pool tables – now they have four, as well as three dart boards:

A member of their team tells us they plan to be “very event-driven” including trivia, and that they’re “ready to be the best damn sports bar in West Seattle.” And of course that means they’ll be showing the Sounders‘ MLS Cup match tomorrow, as well as the Seahawks‘ Monday night game.

    If they devote some taps to some really good beer, I’ll come in.

    We need a sports bar in West Seattle that shows all UFC events. Any chance Admiral Pub wants to take up the cause?

    • Thomas November 10, 2019 (6:44 pm)

      I second this! Show UFC and I’ll become a regular!

          Ufc fights can cost upwards of 3k for a bar to show.  It is based in seating capacity and is a huge risk for the owners.  It would be awesome if they did that but you need to be cool with a cover and spend some money if they decide to do it.

    I’ve often wondered about the pub…However, being next to Yen Wor might have influenced my judgement. I like the pool tables as that is something most of us can’t accommodate in our homes.

    Congrats! I’d love for them to bring back ping pong and some higher quality beers.

    Just stopped in and it’s already cleaner and nicer inside! Alex, one of the other owners mentioned that they want to do even more too.

    Those two dudes don’t look old enough to drink, much less own a bar?! I guess I’m getting old.

  • Mj November 11, 2019 (10:31 am)

    CJ you are not the only one getting old!
