400 Bar debuts sign at Mall of America

The hallowed 400 Bar has returned! As a sign, at least.

As reported in February, the 400 Bar will be part of a 25,000-square-foot complex featuring a concert venue, the Midwest Music Museum, and a restaurant at the Mall of America. With the opening of the museum this week, a familiar landmark is reborn in a new location.

According to mall officials, the 1,000-capacity 400 Bar venue will open on August 1, and the restaurant portion will follow in September. The iconic logo T-shirts have been available at MOA for months now.

The first exhibit currently running at the Minnesota Music Museum is "Ladies and Gentlemen . . . The Beatles!" As you might expect, it includes Fab Four memorabilia, artifacts, videos, instruments, photos, and more. Also on display are exclusive pictures of the Beatles performing their only Minnesota concert at Metropolitan Stadium in 1965.

The exhibit runs at the Midwest Music Museum at Mall of America until September 7. Tickets and more info.

Along with the lovely photo (above) taken by 89.3 the Current's Andrea Swensson, a couple more 400 Bar pics have popped up on social media. Here's one from Sleep Study's Ryan Plewacki:


From the looks of it, 89.3 the Current's Jay Gabler had another stop to make during his Mall of America visit.

That's lovely & corporate. But, if it's still the same owners, with the same attitude & the same service... sorry, but... balls will still be suckled.

I have a 24 speed and live NE. Would probably never go to a mall bar. Kinda seems weird to me.

If you don't get why the MOA is a cesspool to be avoided and why there's no reason to visit this incarnation of this venue, it's probably too late for any help. I'm not about to give several courses worth of lectures on different subject matters to catch anyone up: you'll have to make do with the internet or better yet a good bookstore.

Why does it feel like the Twin Cities never gets anything genuinely new? Just Irish bars dive bars or recycling old concepts that failed and are trying to resurrect a.k.a. zombies... #MN

It will never, ever, come close to what the original 400 bar was. This is sacrilegious!
