Goldie's gets new owners–and its old name

April 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Expect Goldie’s Sports Bar to reopen by June 1 with new owners, a makeover, and its old name: The Iron Bull.

New proprietors Bernie McGuire and Gerald Simonsen opened the Rat and Raven in the U District in August 2009. Simonsen told that they’ll make cosmetic changes to the bar and offer pub fare.

When Goldie’s was on the market, agent Mike Meade told us that when it was established in the 1960s, The Iron Bull attracted a lot of students because bars weren’t allowed to open near the University of Washington campus.
