Popular restaurant/club gets new owner

PORT ANGELES — The co-owners of Crazy Fish Baja and Beyond have found a buyer.

Sometime next month, the space at 229 W. First St. downtown that formerly housed the popular restaurant and nightclub will reopen as The Lyre Club.

New owner Stephanie Anthony, a 1997 Port Angeles High School graduate, is still working on the new bar’s theme as she finalizes the liquor license transfer and other details.

“It’s not completely done yet,” she said.

But she has decided to offer live music, which was a prime feature of Crazy Fish under owners Molly Tucker and Cypress Vollmer, and “more than likely” she will continue the former owner’s Tuesday karaoke nights.

“I’m planning on keeping the live music and looking to incorporate some more blues,” she said.

“Anyone who plays the blues give me a call.”

Anthony said she decided upon the new venue’s name as a reference both to the Joyce-area river and to the musical instrument, as well as a play on words, “since bars usually are filled with liars.”
