Bicycle Bar Coming to Minneapolis

Cranky's Coming soon

Over here in Minneapolis we already have a few coffee bars that double as bike shops (or vice versa) like One on One Bicycle Studio and the excellent Angry Catfish.  We also have a bicycle that is also a bar.  Soon you will be able to add one more to the list of bicycle/bar.

The fine folks over at the Heavy Table have dug up this interesting little tidbit.  Coming this Spring to the East Lake Street area is a new bicycle themed bar called Cranky’s Bicycle Bar.  From Owner Ross Stangler (via Heavy Table);

“I’ve worked in, designed and consulted for bars / restaurants for a long time from Montana to New York and decided it was time to try to get out on my own,” he said. “I love Minneapolis. It’s my hometown, and being an avid bicycler, this concept just clicked.

“It’s seems like we’re a little past due for a bicycle-centric bar in one of the nation’s top bicycle-friendly and progressive cities.”

Their website is little more than a splash page now, but I am hoping by spring you will be able to pedal up and have a drink.  We will keep you updated on the progress and hopefully will meet you for a drink soon.
