The Kelly's Olympian Venue Becomes The Knife Shop

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 9:50 AM


Pop quiz: What is the name of the venue inside Kelly's Olympian?

Um, Kelly's Olympian?

Wrong answer, may you be crushed by one of those motorcycles perched in their rafters. Kelly's is keeping their name, but the venue portion of the downtown bar is getting a pointy new moniker: The Knife Shop.

The change will happen on September 11th (never forget!) of this year during a benefit show for the Transitional School. Why The Knife Shop? Booker Nalin Silva explains via email:

The Knife Shop is a nod to The George and Sons Cutlery Shop that was there for so many decades, and the renovation will make The Knife Shop one of the best venues in Portland to take in a show.

Well there you go.
