More Anvil Pub? Yes, Please: Take A Look At Anvil Pub's New Expanded Space.

On Monday night, without any fanfare at all, the owners of Anvil Pub lifted the garage doors to their new addition and, for the very first time, allowed patrons of the bar to check out the extra space.

The area — which accounts for a good 1,500 square feet and ups the space's capacity by an extra 50 percent — has been about two years in the making. Well, even longer than that, actually. Anvil's owners have been paying rent on the space for three years now, having signed a lease on the then-vacant property a year after first opening next door in 2012.



“Business has been good,” says Loc Holman, who along with his brothers Josh Bridges and Jeremy Bridges, plus their father Pat “Pops” Bridges, owns the space. “Especially with the Fuck Brunch. That's definitely added to the fact that we needed the space. We have lines out the door on Sundays.”

The new space should definitely help: In addition to doubling the spot's bar top space, the room brings more tables to the equation, as well as a dedicated space for a couple dart boards. Also of note: three new murals along the back wall and USB ports that have been added to the power outlets so patrons can easily charge their phones. Soon enough, a new office and a walk-in will also be installed in the back so as to ease up stresses on the kitchen. But with the areas that affect the public complete, the owners decided to pull the trigger on opening up the space.

“We stepped back, looked at it and said, 'All we need to do is clean this place up and we can open the doors,'” Holman says.



Quite the accomplishment reaching that point has been: While using the space as storage, Holman and the Bridges built out the new space by hand, from the wood-paneling meant to mimic the design of the rest of the bar, to the beer tap towers along the wall.

“When we started, it looked like someone had walked out in 1943 and never came back,” Holman says.

That much, certainly, is no longer the case.

“We wanted it to be as fluid as possible — but with some subtle changes,” Holman says. “It's still got that Anvil Pub vibe — but less of a restaurant one. This space has more of a whiskey and beer vibe. We're excited.”
