Brit's Pub is set to reopen this spring after it was burned during a riot in downtown Minneapolis in August. 

The popular pub posted on social media Wednesday saying "We miss you. We need to get together soon. Like, really soon. Reopening spring 2021."

An exact date hasn't been announced, but people are excited

Brit's Pub was damaged in August after a riot broke out following false rumors that Minneapolis police had shot a Black man on Nicollet Mall. Instead, as police approached the suspect of an earlier fatal shooting at a parking ramp, the suspect fatally shot himself.

The restaurant had to call in a professional restoration company to clean things up following a fire that was set (sprinklers helped put it out) and looters ransacking the business, stealing anything they could get their hands on, the pub's manager said last summer.
