A long, long, long time ago, maybe 18 years ago now, Richmond Beach had not one, but two, popular bars – the World Famous, 21+ Cabin Tavern and the kid-friendly Wild Horse Bar and Grill at 20th Ave NW and Richmond Beach road.

A new sign went up mid-March, it’s now “Available” and since then, there’s been non-stop talk about what might be happening next.

Turns out the local owner, who has had it for a few years now, wants to see a bit more life in Richmond Beach – yay! And they want to lease the space to a tenants or tenants for….??? The owner recognizes he needs to spend some money to make the place workable and he’s open to that.

So what would you like to see here? Put your response in the comments!

Sure would be nice to have a bustling, really good restaurant in Shoreline so we don’t always have to go to Edmonds, but would the people come?

I too remember those days of the past and have missed having both the ice cream window and a good family friendly Bar & Grill! Want them back!
