The bar everybody hated to see sit vacant has finally announced a re-opening date.
The Viking Bar has a long and storied past as a West Bank institution, delightful dive, and venerable live music venue. They say they've kept it classic but given it a "brand-new engine" with new bathrooms, a basement kitchen, and a top-of-the-line sound system. The official re-opening date is Wednesday, May 25.
