On its second night since re-opening, Clubhouse Jager in Minneapolis was forced to close early on Thursday.
The bar was back in business on Wednesday after a five month hiatus forced by a staff walkout, after they learned owner Julius DeRoma had previously donated to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
But on Thursday, it closed after activists picketed the Washington Avenue North establishment, projecting a swastika and a message saying "Nazi pubs f*** off."
It's not clear who was responsible for projecting the image onto the bar.
CityPages reports that the bar closed early, around 9:15 p.m., ahead of its scheduled 10 p.m. close.
The protest was designed to inform people in town for the Super Bowl of its controversial history.
Carin Mrotz, the executive director of Jewish Community Action in the Twin Cities, told GoMN: "The reopening at this time is a clear attempt to take advantage of Super Bowl tourists and visitors’ lack of information, and it’s good to see activists providing that kind of transparency to potential customers."
GoMN has contacted the bar to find out if it will be staying open and to ask for a comment on Thursday's protest, but has not yet received a response.
At the time DeRoma's political donations were revealed, an official statement from the bar, sent to CityPages, said: "We celebrate the diversity of our employees and we do not tolerate or endorse any kind of discrimination against anyone."
The staff walkout in September led to attempts by Minnesota lawmakers to allow them to claim unemployment benefits despite not being laid off.
It followed reports that employees were harassed, threatened, and "taunted on the streets" because of their affiliation with DeRoma.
