A friend on Facebook just said that the Bulldog is losing it's lease and is closing. Could someone confirm or deny this please?

The Bulldog would be a terrible loss to the Gonzaga community in my opinion.

I haven't heard anything but I can stop by and ask sometime this week. I really hope this isn't true.

Thanks

That's pretty much my favorite bar in Spokane to hang out and it would crush me if it was gone when I come home for Christmas.

I think it would qualify as a historical structure, or it should!

What would we do without a place famous for its untouched 1960's decor, Bing Crosby on the jukebox and the gentle aroma of stale whiz and vomit coming from the restrooms?

fellow who answered the phone says the owner's ex girlfriend is going to take it over, change the name and re open. closes 31st. He went on to say the owner Willard Quinn "wanted too much $$." So his ex girlfriend is going to buy it and make a go. Or try.

The fellow said Quinn "wanted too much" and predictded the new owner wouldn't last. I asked if it would remain the Bulldog and he said no, he owns the name so the new owner will have to rename it.

The iconic Bulldog Tavern sign was rescued by a group of GU grads who bought the sign and the copyright; the sign is now installed in the John J. Hemmingson Center, the replacement for the COG.

I suspect we'll be seeing news/photos very soon on this. . .

Inside the building that was built where the giant hole is in this picture:

Thought this picture would help you get oriented.

Here is a rendering... this is south side. Madonna/CM to the right... MAC behind... Foley to the left.

The photo was taken in the Bulldog Pub on the second floor of the Hemmingson Center, the newly completed student center.

Sweet, that used to be the old COG/bookstore parking lot...walked by daily as I lived in Madonna or as we'd like to say, in between the girls :)

So, there's a pub on campus now?! Sweet!

Thanks for the photos and info
