Java Joe's is Closing

Insiders say Joe Flammini, whose Ocean Beach coffeehouse played an integral part in launching the careers of Atlantic recording artists Jason Mraz and Jewel, has sold his latest business, Java Joe's Pub.

The California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) confirms that the process to transfer the alcohol license from Flammini to Pelbock Enterprises LLC began December 23. The final authorization could take place as soon as this week.

The principals of Pelbock Enterprises LLC, Keith Bockmier and Mett Pelot, could not be reached for comment.

Before Flammini took over the beer-and-wine bar on El Cajon Boulevard, it was known as Kelly's Pub. Flammini presented local artists like Anya Marina, Greg Laswell, and Gregory Page at Java Joe's Pub since it opened a year ago.

The former Java Joe's coffeehouse began in Poway and then moved to two different locations in OB. According to the ABC, the new owners will change the name of Java Joe's Pub to the State House. It has a legal capacity of 142.

Flammini declined comment.
