The Uptown/Lyn-Lake area is officially losing one of its most prominent (and legal) sources of live music. Plans were revealed this week to turn Cause Spirits & Soundbar into a sports bar in September.
In late June, it was announced that Cause (formerly Sauce) would close following Saturday night's show celebrating the venue's 5th anniversary. Black Diet's Jonathan Tolliver wrote a heartfelt farewell to the venue, and many held out a tiny sliver of hope that the place would still carry on its live music tradition in a different form. But we now know that the intersection of Lyndale and Lake will come to be known for brews, sports on TV, and... just glance over at the condos up the street to figure out the rest of the equation.
