Uptown Bar's relocation dead in the water

From local business paper Finance & Commerce comes some sad, if not entirely surprising, news about the Uptown Bar's planned relocation.

"The investment group that was working with Uptown Bar was not able to come to terms with the Lyndale Theater."

The Uptown Bar crew was rumored to have been planning a three-level grand redesign, featuring a rooftop patio, of the old Theatre Antiques space. According to F&C's report (and anyone with eyes), the Lyn-Lake area has been thriving in recent years, making the lack of comity between Lyndale Theater building owners and Uptown Bar management at least a little confusing.

One of the more surprising things to come out of F&C's coverage is that Lyn-Lake isn't considered Uptown, which I'm happy about as I don't have to describe where I live as Uptown anymore. "Nah dude, Lyn-Lake." But where to go to drink? Home. Still.

Yeah, why would anybody want huge delicious breakfasts that rock and the best bloodys in town? Who would ever want that back?

Bloodys were good, breakfast was horrible. I mean, awful. They were only good when you were 24 years old and you pounded a 1/5 of whiskey the night before.

There are plenty of other good bars in Mpls. Can we move on?

Uptown, as an idea is already dead...why would you want the bar back? Wouldn't be the same.

all members of the met council should be fired and replaced with people who live and thrive in the city. why on earth would minneapolis need people to come in from out side when it boasts the most residents. Bring back local business and neighborhood bars, its what everyone wants anyhoo. Uptown is a waste of space, even the hipsters feel out of place

Uptown sure is a better place with an Apple store and a Columbia/Northwhatever the fuck store.

really doesn't matter. the charm up uptown is long gone anyway. just another building for douchbag todds to annoy the rest of civilization.

Apparently, loosing money on an empty commercial space for 3+ years is much more lucrative than allowing someone to rent it.
