Kings Wine Bar to be replaced by burger, self-serve beer joint

Tap Society hopes to open by June.
Publish date:

It's only been two weeks since Kings Wine Bar closed in south Minneapolis and already new tenants are in the process of moving in.

The location at Grand Avenue South and West 46th Street will soon become home to the Tap Society.

The company confirmed on its Facebook page that it has bought Kings and is "working hard to be open by June."

If you're not familiar with the Tap Society name, they've been running as a pop-up pub at Cave Vin in southwest Minneapolis, next to Pizzeria Lol, since last summer as it sought a permanent location.

This pop-up will continue for the next three weekends, Tap Society said.

So what to expect from its new spot? A continuation of what it's been serving at Cave Vin, basically.

Owner Mike Fritz told CityPages they'll be focusing on burgers, shakes and beer.

And by beer, we're talking self-serve beer – as well as wine and cider – on 26 taps featuring a selection of craft and domestic brands.

Keep an eye out for opening date announcements in the near future.
