Gasthof's building in Northeast Minneapolis is for sale

The restaurant opened in 1992 and has been closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The home of Gasthof zur Gemutlichkeit in Minneapolis is for sale. 

The German-themed bar and restaurant, a popular spot for Oktoberfest for decades, has been temporarily closed since last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

And it appears the popular German restaurant is closed for good based on the real estate listing, although this hasn't been officially confirmed. Bring Me The News has reached out to Gasthof for comment. 

The KW Commercial listing for the property calls it the "former" Gasthof restaurant, stating the 18,887 square foot building on 1.2 acres is for sale, for lease or for development. 

"This is a rare, highly visible, freestanding, second-generation restaurant space located in sought-after northeast Minneapolis," the listing states. "The former Gasthof German restaurant offers main-floor and lower-level dining and bar space, turn-key kitchen, and spacious areas for events."

The listing also touts its high visibility location along University Avenue Northeast, on-site parking, nearby other established restaurants and bars, close to public transit, and its two full-service commercial kitchens. 

Before Gasthof opened at 2300 University Ave. NE in 1992, it was a bar/restaurant called Worwa's. Gasthof wasn't without controversy — several years ago when it was the site of a Nazi-themed dinner party and subsequent protests.
