Drumlin is the new sister of Ridgecrest Public House next door. We worked with the same architect and others to make a second space for all ages and more of everything: more taps, more room, more people, more events, and more food in the future. Drumlin also has a stage for live music.

Like with Ridgecrest Pub, we stripped the space down to a bare box. Contractors added new plumbing, new lighting and new heating, all energy-efficient. For several years, we looked for surplus materials and used furniture and let them dictate the style. The bar that seats six is made from end grain fir flooring we got on Craiglist ten years ago for a home remodel that went another way. The barstools were from another bar. The couches came from a Seattle hotel (we haven’t figured out which one.) The solid fir slab sliding doors to the party room are a barn find from south King County. And the long fir table in the party room came from a farmhouse a half a mile north of us.

The back patio is compartmentalized into weatherproof and heated tents inspired by covid limitations, but can be used for bigger groups and parties.

For the first year we were open, our best role for the community during the pandemic was providing socially spaced restaurant ambiance, service, and beverages in support of the food trucks, along with a safe place to take time before and after dinner to connect over drinks and a small dinner, snack, and dessert menu.

Now we are growing into the vision of being a place to see music and gather in big groups.

We enthusiastically recommend any of the contractors, services, and stores listed below, all of whom helped us build both locations.
