Sneakers in Downtown Duluth closes after 32 years

The restaraunt and its employees will combine into the new Lyric Kitchen and Bar

DULUTH, Minn. – A long–time Downtown Duluth restaurant has closed its doors.

Sneakers Sports Bar and Grill in the Holiday Center downtown has closed up shop after 32 years in business. With the opening of the new Lyric Kitchen and Bar opening up soon, Holiday management decided it would be best to combine the two businesses.

“It was a staple for downtown business people for lunches and a spot to grab a bite before anything going on over at the DECC,” food and beverage manager for Holiday Inn Adam McCort said. “It’s going to be missed, but the Lyric Kitchen and Bar is definitely going to be an improved experience for everybody that’s coming down to grab a bite to eat.”

The Lyric Kitchen and Bar is set to open on October 30th.
