Publish date:

HopCat is the latest restaurant/bar to shutter its doors permanently due to the financial strain of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Minneapolis establishment, located at 435 Nicollet Mall, confirmed rumors of its closing on Wednesday, saying "Thank you for welcoming us into Minneapolis with open arms and allowing us to bring you great food and beer, in exchange for the memories we will take with us." 

"This pandemic has been nothing short of challenging for the restaurant industry as a whole," HopCat's Facebook post says, asking its patrons to continue to support local craft breweries whom they poured, including Fair State, Fulton Beer, Indeed, Badgert Hill, and Surly. 

The Michigan-based restaurant closed its Wisconsin location in August, though it still has nine locations in other parts of the country. 

HopCat, known for 80 beers on tap and is Cosmic fries, opened in Minneapolis in 2017. 

Here's a list of bars and restaurants that have closed permanently since the pandemic began.
