The restoration of O’Callahan’s Pub and Grill is in full swing. The plan is to return to the thrilling days of yesteryear, 2005.
After rescinding a sales agreement for an Indian restaurant and a gas station, the owner of the iconic corner property at KP Highway and 92nd Street NW, Greg Calahan, has been jumping through the many hoops of business restoration.
Cleanup inside and out was first on the list, travel to Olympia to navigate the state liquor and business licensing process was next. Overhaul and replacement of refrigeration and electrical equipment proved challenging.
According to Calahan, the business is a work in progress and the property remains available for sale. But in the meantime, he will run it for a year, seek a good manager, and bring back the familiar floor plan, stage, fireplace and kitchen. “I’m moving forward to open up as soon as licensing is done,” he said.
