West Bank pub Acadia is put up for sale

The co-owners announced Tuesday their century-old building is on the market

The owners of Acadia in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood have put the business up for sale. 

In a Facebook post Tuesday, co-owners Juliana Bryarly and Ted Lowell wrote: "After 18 years, two locations, countless music/karaoke/theater shows and a pandemic, the owners are ready to move on.

"The business is currently closed for renovations and COVID, and we're looking for someone to bring it into its next phase." 

Though it's a rough time for business, the owners write, their landlords are offering an "exceptional transferable lease" and a "generous, low-interest government COVID-relief loan" is available. 

Acadia first opened in 2002 on Nicollet Avenue, and moved to its current spot at 329 Cedar Ave. S. in 2008.

The building, which is more than 130 years old and has a capacity of 75, has long been a mainstay for artists and musicians: several music venues have lived here, notably including the New Riverside Cafe from 1971-1997.
