Less than a year after opening, Jones Pub will be serving their last on Friday, December 30, 2005. I'm sorry to see it go. Happy Hour prices will apply all night.
What's coming? The Oaks Bottom Pub, owned by Jerry Fechter (of the New Old Lompoc) and famed publican Jim Parker, late of Concordia Ale House. According to the Oregonian's John Foyston, Parker's "first pub, the Mountain Tap Tavern in Colorado, was named one of America's 10 best beer bars in 1995. Parker will spend most of the time behind the Oaks Bottom bar, a job he loves. He's looking to make it a true neighborhood place that opens early in the morning with good coffee and pastries and continues through the day with a solid menu, 12 taps (half will pour Lompoc beers) and a full bar." Parker and Fechter? Wow! Sellwood, watch out!
