The Publican is almost ready

Step by step, piece-by-piece, The Publican is coming together.

Atmore’s newest pub located on West Ridgeley Street, right behind the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce, has been a vision of Co-Owners David Strawbridge and Delmar Weaver.

Strawbridge said they felt like Atmore needed a pub.

“I’ve always wanted to do it, Strawbridge said. “I’m a fan of the atmosphere. No one was really talking about anything moving forward.

“It’s always just been in the back burner of my brain,” he said. “I just wanted to bring that to Atmore. I felt like as my experience in beverage in sales and management, and my partner’s (Weaver) experience in business and bar, we could do this better than anyone else could.”

Weaver has similar thoughts on why The Publican is needed in Atmore.

“This could maybe be a place to go that’s not what they’ve had typically in the past,” Weaver said. “I don’t know if you’ve seen some of the things on Facebook. David has put a lot up there (on his page) and the response has been phenomenal. The people have asked for it.”
