Adam Lubarsky Keeps It Pumping

Many Westporters know Adam Lubarsky as the owner of 2 very popular restaurant/bar/music venues: the Georgetown Saloon and Blu Parrot.

These days you can find him at Southport’s Grey Goose.

But the 1973 Staples High School graduate has also enjoyed a long and parallel career as an actor. He’s had a principal role in the film “You Don’t Know Jack”; been seen on TV’s “Law and Order,” and done commercials too.

Lubarsky’s latest gig: the face of Novartis’ “Keep it Pumping” campaign.

Visitors to the drug maker’s site see several striking images of Lubarsky, calmly reading a paper as water rises all around. A 30-second video reinforces the main idea: “With heart failure, danger rises over time.”

The same video runs as a TV ad. It aired last Sunday on “60 Minutes.”

If you miss him online — or the Grey Goose — you can see him May 13.

That’s when his next film — “Money Monster,” directed by Jodie Foster and starring George Clooney — opens in theaters.

  1. Adam was my first boss in 1978 that led to many years working at the Georgetown Saloon. Little did I know we would become as close as family with the original “Saloonatic” group that worked with him in the 80’s. So happy for his success and following his passion for acting.

    Seems Adam is following in my dear friend, his brothers footsteps: Drew Lubarsky who was a Staples Players Actor. My brother Stephen Alward and Adam have known each other since Staples and been partners as owners of the Georgetown Saloon and later working together at their last adventure, The Blu Parrott interestingly enough also inspired by Drew. Its nice to see Adam flourishing and enjoying this part of his life and doing well.
