According to a press release on its Facebook page, the historic Sundance Saloon on the Parker Strip has been sold.
Norm Turley, a retired cop from Long Beach Police Department and co-owner of Dogz Bar & Grill in Belmont Shore, bought the property from long-time owner Jim Shubin after Shubin listed it for sale on Craigslist and elsewhere.
The 1.5 acre property comes with its infamous 24,000 square foot building, a bar, restaurant, stage and gathering areas.
Turley, also an off-road desert racer for years, said he plans to remodel the site back to what it was in its early days. “I want to restore what is here and rebuild the site to what Jim intended it to be,” he is quoted as saying.
The old river hangout has achieved near legendary status for its status in its peak, when Sundance was the place to be on summer weekends.
