Whisky Park, Malone's Bar & Grill now open
The Lodge becomes an urban country bar.
Gene Suh, owner of The Lyndale Tap House, debuted his second bar/restaurant last week, by opening Whisky Park at 15 S. Fifth St. in Minneapolis (former home of the Lodge). The new spot was conceived as an urban country bar, with the metro's largest selection of whisky, natch, plus bar food, a dance floor, and large western-themed graphic murals courtesy of Shea Design. Yee-haw!
Another Shea project, Malone's Bar & Grill, opened yesterday at 12635 Elm Creek Blvd N. in Maple Grove, in a site formerly occupied by Timber Lodge Steakhouse. Malone's is a new concept from the owners of the Maynard's Restaurants in Excelsior and Rogers and the menu will include many popular Maynard's dishes.
