A popular music venue appears to have shuttered for good. The 400 Bar was set to open at the Mall of America after its original location on the University of Minnesota’s West Bank closed earlier this year. Photos show an eviction notice on the door of the 400 Bar.
A little more than a year after shutting its doors, the popular West Bank music club, the 400 Bar, is set to reemerge as a multiple-use music complex at the Mall of America.
For 17 years, the 400 bar was a spot for up and coming and popular Twin Cities bands. Now, the owners of the Minneapolis club decided to close.
In recent years, more and more local bands are starting to emerge onto the music scene with great force. And, a few are even playing alongside some of the country’s biggest acts on rock star tours. But, it’s never hard to forget where all the success came from.
