Triple Rock Social Club will close its doors after November 22, and 19 years of killer music, Minneapolis attitude and a hidden gem of a food menu. The rock club announced the impending closure via its Facebook page today stating in part, “We are proud to have been part of an amazing time in the Twin Cities Music scene. We have had more than our fair share of legendary performances and events, watched numerous local artists get their start on our stage, and hosted the Minneapolis debuts of countless national acts.”
The bar and club is co-owned by Gretchen Funk and Erik Funk of the seminal punk band Dillinger Four. The bar first opened at 629 Cedar Avenue South in 1998 as a small music venue and attached bar with food, a pool table and a spectacularly stacked jukebox. In 2003 the venue remodeled and expanded into a nearby parking lot, greatly expanding the musical show capacity.
The menu has always been bar food, well done and at affordable prices with a wide, welcome selection of vegan options.
