Pacific Beach bars on closure list

Another sunny winter day in Pacific Beach resulted in crowds of people on bikes and skating and walking along the boardwalk on Saturday, January 18.

A noticeable difference in the beach scene must have brought disappointment to some: the usual sounds of happy people and loud music were missing from the Lahaina Beach House.

The beachfront deck of the popular bar and grill was empty and quiet. A small piece of paper taped to an orange construction cone stated, "Closed for remodeling. We apologize for any inconvenience." According to their Facebook page, the oceanfront deck will re-open on January 24.

As passersby went up to read the sign, some wondered aloud if the business would reopen. The past few weeks have seen the closing of two other longtime PB establishments, both on Garnet Avenue.

After reports of a sale had been circulating for months, Moondoggie's shut their doors once the New Year began. There is no notice at the site of what is next to come for the location.

Further east on Garnet, the Tiki House surprised many when they closed after decades of business. A $3000-a-month rent hike reportedly prompted owner Dave Miller to call it a day.

When the sign says "Closed for Remodeling" or "Close for Plumbing Problems" that usually means they're done! Gone! (and too chicken to tell customers the truth.) Too bad. All 3 of those places will be missed.

Do not speak before you know what you are talking about, they re-open Friday. Should they have stayed open while they ripped out their bathrooms????

This cycle of bar/business opening/closing has been going on in the PB - MB area since the Cave closed.

Lahainas is not closed for good. They will be re opening in a few days. Renovations were for the bathrooms that needed a facelift so very badly. Due to permits & health codes, you cannot have an open business with non functional facilities. The neighborhood classic will be back in action this week.
