EL SOBRANTE BUSINESS OF THE MONTH APRIL 2018
4156 Appian Way, El Sobrante
Hours: 8 AM to Midnight Every Day
Initially opening its doors for business in November of last year, the Elsewhere Tavern has moved into the old Capri Club location, across from the library. Mike Diebel, the new owner, has put a lot of effort into giving the property a complete face lift. The original thought was to "transform the old watering hole into a back woods, old school tavern." The new bar feels like a local, neighborhood place where everyone will feel welcome. The Elsewhere Tavern has two brand new pool tables, electronic darts, a shuffleboard, karaoke nightly, and poker twice a week. Along with live music on Friday nights, there's good entertainment for everyone. But you're going to have to wait a little longer to enjoy the Elsewhere Tavern.
Half way through March, Mike decided to close the Elsewhere Tavern for further repairs and remodeling. Now they have plans to add a game room and, partnering with Fastrack Coffee, are expanding into the remainder of the building.
Mike is also the owner of the Somewhere Else Sports Bar and Grill. He suggests stopping by there while the Elsewhere Tavern is under construction.
Mike says his family grew up in a small town and they are here to help revive a small town, one location at a time. Mike wouldn't call his family "bar owners." He says they are a "business family" who take pride in what they do. Mike says "stay local, spend local" and "come on down to Elsewhere Tavern or Somewhere Else and have a burger or a beer. This is the only way to make a small town work". They are on the right track!
