Seattle night life moguls Jason Lajeunesse and David Meinert — owners of the Lost Lake Tavern and Neumo’s, among other Capitol Hill spots — have signed a lease to take over Seattle’s beloved dive bar the Comet Tavern. The pair plan to reopen in early 2014.

In a press release issued today, the they outlined their plan for bar. “We plan to continue to have some live music, but not every night of the week. We will revive much of the Comet’s lost charms, from pool tables, to pinball games, to a karaoke night, while introducing a small food menu for the first time in the Comet’s history.” said Lajeunesse.

Lajeunesse and Meinert also co-own Barboza and Big Mario’s Pizza, not to mention the Capitol Hill Block Party.

The Comet Tavern, which closed abrubtly on Oct. 6 after previous owner Brian Balodis ran into financial trouble.

Prior to closing, the Comet Tavern hosted live music almost every night of the week and was a place for up and coming local bands and smaller touring bands to perform.
