Two years later, we saw a need in the Commercial Drive community for a larger pub and private liquor store. The result? An impressive two- story pub and adjacent liquor store featuring the locals’ favorite beer, wine and spirits, and the awesome “Women in Power” mural. The pub operated as a neighborhood mingling spot for 18 years and kept the music vibe live on the Drive.
TOBY'S STORYA long history on the Drive
We are a long-time North Shore family. Beginning as owners and operators of the Lynwood Inn Hotel and Tavern, a popular destination on the North Shore for 80 years, our passion is creating welcoming, fun experiences for our guests. We purchased the Silvertone Tavern on Commercial Drive and 11th Street in 2001, creating a social space, with live music and pub fare that brought the community together.
The legendary Lynnwood closed its doors in 2012, opening the door for a second Toby’s pub and Liquor store, the only Social House on the shore that pairs with a private liquor store, across the street in a separate location, to serve the North Shore.
The pandemic of 2020 forced another renovation on the Drive; closing the pub and expanding the liquor store to its current two-story space. The upper floor now offers a perfect location for beer, wine, spirits and scotch tastings surrounded by the same art pieces from the pub days- gone-by.
