It's not been a good 24 hours for drinkers in Minneapolis.
First Ryan's Pub in Loring Park closed its doors for good on Tuesday night, and now a south Minneapolis wine bar is following suit.
Kings Wine Bar at Grand Avenue South and West 46th Street made the announcement on its Facebook page that its last day of service is this Saturday.
It called the move "bittersweet" after revealing it had accepted, "with a heavy heart" an offer to sell.
This probably best sums up the feelings of its fans:
The Eater reports the bar has been run since October 2014 by Michael and Nu Zosel, under whose ownership it expanded its food menu with "pan-Asian dishes."
The bar originally opened in 2009, but under its soon-to-be-new owners it's expected to stay as a bar and restaurant, the website notes.
