Update on Goldie’s Closure

Jonah at Seattlecrime.com tells us that he heard from a reliable source that Goldie’s is under new management, and the liquor board has yet to authorize a license for the new owners.

They appear to be closed for now, but we’re wondering when and if they’ll re-open in the future…

    living across the street from the place I would not mind if Goldie’s stayed closed forever.

    Buy a condo next to a bar, you kinda have to accept it.

    Doug is correct. There have been too many changes in the old hood ’cause people moved next to an established place….. then had problems with where they live.

    I talked to the woman who managed the place. She said there is a meeting Monday and Goldie’s will reopen end of next week-March 12?

    I live there too. I hate the people that moved in here and complained about the neighborhood and are trying to change it. Shame on you. Be a part of Wallingford, don’t change it because YOU don’t fit in here.

    I live just a few doors down. I don’t mind having Goldie’s there, except when grease spills out onto the sidewalk. Slippery! But otherwise, I think they’re fine neighbors.

    I have lived there for 18 years now. I don’t live in a condo and the customers at Goldies are rude at two am on a Thursday or any other night, when they live the bar yelling at each other.

    I love Wallingford for all the uniqueness and diversity. Part of living in the city that you have to accept or tolerate (whichever works for you) and enjoy. If that is not something you can at least tolerate, then there is an option… MOVE!

    Hey – at least we are not considered the “Murder Capital” and have to deal with gun shots every 10 mins.

    Hey, I’m right there with you Silvia. I’ve lived in Wallingford for 16 years now and in all that time the only real consistent *neighborhood flavor* Goldies has brought to the table is a stream of UW frat kids who drunkenly (and lingeringly) load into their cars at 2 in the morning. Every old-school resident of The ‘Ford I know detests the place, and it’s not simply because it’s a bar. So don’t let the love-it-or-leave-it comments here make you feel bad.

    Goldie’s – No valid liquor license, cooked books, Korean money laundering, staff not getting last paychecks….old owners may step in to buy for 50K and assume 125K debt. Expect same staff to reappear at this beloved watering hole. the saga continues.

    I also live in the condo next to goldies and hope they close for ever. I loved goldies for the first 3 years I lived here, the new owners though are just a$$es. The old owners would at least try to keep the noise to a minimal but not the new ones. They turn their music up as lound as they can to try to get people to come into their dead a$$ bar. I have called them a few times asking them nicely to turn it down or at least close their doors and they were very rude so I just started calling the cops.

    Last month the officer who responded to the call said he was going to write a letter to the liquer control board. I hope it had something to do with them losing there liquor license. F-the people who bought it, I hope they lost a ton of money!

    If someone buys it and opens up a decent bar I will be the first one in line for a beer but if the new owner is anything like the old one I hope they have the same success and the place closes down for good.
