Minneapolis Bars Then and Now by Minnesota Historical Society
Gratuitously stealing the title from one of my favorite Minnesota history books, Twin Cities Then and Now by Larry Millet , Item of the Day presents an occasional series, Minneapolis Bars Then and (sometimes) Now.
This photograph shows the Five O’ Clock Bar and Restaurant at 34 S. 5th St in 1959. This location is definitely not a bar anymore; the Nic apartment building now stands at the corner of Nicollet Mall and 5th St.
