Ballard band buys Conor Byrne

Three members of the band Mooncalf have purchased the Ballard tavern Conor Byrne, reports the Seattle Weekly’s Reverb blog. Band member Diarmuid Cullen has been a minority owner and the bar manager, and two other guys from the band teamed up with Cullen to buy the Conor Byrne outright. (It’s like every band’s dream to own your own pub.) You may remember back in 2006 that Conor Byrne’s former owners were involved in a spat with the building’s owners over hard liquor. But the Weekly reports the building recently sold, so that appears to be no longer an issue. As the Ballardite Blog says, it will be interesting to see if there will be any changes with Conor Byrne in the months to come.
