Hidden Minneapolis: Roundup Bar and Grill

Roundup Bar and Grill
Roundup Bar and Grill, Mpls, 6/9/08

The Roundup Bar and Grill is on the corner of 2nd Ave. and Lake Street. That's 35W in the background. Across the street is a McDonald's, and down the street is an emerging Latino set of storefronts. I've never been to the Roundup, even though it's two blocks from where I live. Maybe it's that they don't have Buffalo Burgers or Ostrich Burgers like the old place did.

What old place, you may ask? Many on my FList have been in the establishment, some as performers. It used to be known as the Irish Too Pub, a grungy bar that occasionally had live music. That place is long gone, closed by the health department and/or the police or something. But memories survive, as does the sign in the parking lot in the back.

If you turned 90 degrees to the right, you would see the mural who's picture I posted Friday.
