Spike’s Pub closing this month after 38 years in San Luis Obispo

A San Luis Obispo pub that invites patrons to “see the world of beer” is closing after nearly four decades on Higuera Street.

The owner of Spike’s Pub, Andrea Miller, said Monday that she’s closing the restaurant at the end of May.

Spike’s has been open for 38 years. Miller has owned Spike’s for 13 years and 10 of those years as the solo owner.

Richardson Properties, which leases spaces at the Creamery, said the space will be taken over by Bear and the Wren, a wood-fired pizza restaurant with an established catering business in town.

Bear and the Wren likely won’t open until October after its owners are finished renovating the space.

The space next door to Spike’s was vacated last year by Foremost and has remained vacant; however, the leasing agency said a Peruvian restaurant in Paso Robles will expand into that space in the near future.

Jolene Bakery is also opening soon in the Creamery Marketplace.
