A pioneering Minnesota club owner and beloved community icon has died.
In fact, Allen herself made history, becoming the first African-American woman to get a liquor license as well as the first to own a nightclub in the state of Minnesota.
Over the years the jazz and blues club Arnellia's hosted big-name musicians, such as Prince, Zapp, Alexander O'Neal, Bobby Blue Bland and Sounds of Blackness.
But things came to an end earlier this year.
Arnellia's was shut down after Allen began suffering from serious health issues.
"Rip to Mrs Arnellia Allen!! This amazing woman was a inspiration to everybody & she was like a grandmother to me!!," wrote DJ Anthony Brown on Facebook. "You will be truly missed & my condolences to all her wonderful family!!"
