The former Sunrise Inn on the corner of 45th Street and 34th Avenue in Minneapolis has been remade as Bull’s Horn by notable local chef Doug Flicker and his business partner, wife Amy Greeley. The room has been scrubbed, a few windows added, but the comfortable, neighborhood bar vibe is still in tact.
The food menu will be packed with bar food favorites like stuffed mushroom caps, pizza burgers with pepperoni and cheese, wings, nachos, fried bologna sandwich with a deviled egg smear, and more. There’s even a kid’s menu and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks including Prohibition kombucha and Kool-Aid. The bar will serve beer and wine, but not full alcohol.
Entertainment inside includes old school bubble hockey, a vintage jukebox stocked with 45’s and since opening day is Halloween, Flicker and Greeley are asking neighbors to show up in full costume. Bull’s Horn will open at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday October 31.
Doug Flicker is best known as one of the seminal fine-dining chef whose now-shuttered Auriga and Piccolo were widely regarded as some of the best dining experiences to be had in Minneapolis. Flicker is also the executive chef at Esker Grove inside the Walker Art Center. He and Greeley also operate Sandcastle, the seasonal stand on the beach at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis. Greeley is an experienced hospitality professional and both have a deep love and appreciation for dive bars.
