Dub Pub in Kirkland celebrates new ownership

The new owners of the Dub Pub celebrated their acquisition with a ribbon cutting on Thursday in the Totem Lake neighborhood of Kirkland.

Lee Dumas and Athina Mangouras, who also own the Brickhouse Pub in Juanita Village, took over the bar and grill about five months ago. They were joined by members of the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce, Kirkland City Council members and patrons. Kirkland Mayor Amy Walen did the honors of cutting the ribbon.

The Rolling Stones cover band Beasts of Burden performed at the event and include local musicians from Creme Tangerine and Jon Bolton of “The Herding Cats” on lead vocals.

The new owners are planning many upgrades to the venue, including a new dance floor.
