Uptown Tavern & Rooftop announced on social media that it will be shuttering its doors next weekend.

The bar and restaurant said its last day of business will be Saturday, Oct. 22. The establishment has been serving customers for 17 years at 1400 Lagoon Ave., just off of Hennepin Avenue.

The business thanked its loyal staff, customers and community, calling it “the journey of a lifetime.”

Uptown Tavern didn’t specifically say why it is shuttering its doors, simply saying “unfortunately all great things come to an end.”
