New Keizer Village restaurant coming later this month

Bubba’s Pub and Lotto

The Keizer City Council approved the liquor license of a new bar/restaurant called Bubba’s Pub and Lotto at a meeting at city hall on Monday, Aug. 2. 

The pub will be located in Keizer Village (3860 River Road N Suite 3860-A), which was formally Gyro Stop, which closed in early-June. 

Bubba’s Pub and Lotto owner Jackson Martino said that he hopes to open up the new venue by Tuesday, Aug. 10 and has plans to expand the business in the future. 

“We want to open more locations in the area around Salem-Keizer. Not anytime soon, maybe in a year from now. But for now, we’re just trying to get this place up and be a good neighborhood bar,” Martino said.
