North Delta’s Sundowner Pub reopens

NORTH DELTA — Marilyn Sanders was all smiles as she welcomed patrons to her renovated Sundowner Pub.

The "soft opening" on June 15 followed six weeks of interior renovation work on the pub, which she purchased on May 1.

"I bought the building, the land, everything," Sanders said. "I’m all about the dirt," she added with a laugh.

Under ownership of the Podavin family, the pub closed at the end of March after 35 years in business at the corner of Scott Road and 64th Avenue.

Close to $150,000 was spent on renovations, Sanders said. Fresh paint, 20 TV screens, new bar stools, a granite bar countertop and a new kitchen were all added. The old pub’s pool table is gone, as are the dart boards.

"I’m open to constructive feedback and suggestions about entertainment, the food, beverages, all of it," Sanders said.

She ran the Kennedy Pub in North Delta from 1996 to 2003 before turning her attention to the Jolly Coachman in Pitt Meadows for the next decade.

"I tried to retire (in 2013), but that didn’t work," said Sanders.
