The long awaited opening for Skål Beer Hall (5429 Ballard Ave NW) has been pushed to October, after about half a year of city permitting issues.
Skål tells us they’ve launched into the building phase: “The sound of hammers, saws, and an occasional viking horn is music to our ears!” they write. They’re undergoing a massive remodel from the bar’s former life as the People’s Pub.
“This is a studs-out remodel. We did all of the demo work ourselves and have now (thankfully!) passed the heavy lifting over to our contractor,” they say. They’re opening the doors for a few hours each Sunday in August from 11am to 2pm to anyone who wants to have a peek at the remodel. They’ll have shirts for sale, mug club memberships and three styles of hats to choose from. Only merchandise will be for sale at this point – no food or drink until they’re up and running.
