Coup d’etat the nightclub sized restaurant in Uptown has announced it will be closing and the space will become a second outpost of The Pourhouse.
Coup d’etat first opened in January of 2014 by the Jester Concepts restaurant group. The company also owned Borough and Parlour in the North Loop and originally the restaurant was under the same opening chef team. At the time Rick Nelson, the Star Tribune’s critic wrote, “By taking a more thoughtful approach to what is essentially bar food, much of what Coup d'état accomplishes is often delightful, and occasionally remarkable.” Coup d’etat pushed the boundaries of cocktail culture in the neighborhood and the neighborhood pushed back. As much as the talented team could make a perfect Aviation, the nearby nightlife demanded Fireball shots.
October 1st will be the final day of business for Coup d’etat and in a statement Jester Concepts said it hopes that gives everyone enough time to say farewell and use up any outstanding gift cards.
Jester Concepts continues to operate Borough, Parlour, Mercado by Earl Giles, Monello and Constantine. Coup d’etat’s employees are being offered different positions throughout the company.
The Pourhouse is a TV-filled bar and restaurant in downtown Minneapolis that also has a large stage and secret passages that lead to an outdoor patio. The Pourhouse Uptown will have plenty of tots, wings and Fireball.
