Dubh Linn puts down roots

It is safe to say Dubh Linn Pub is a downtown Duluth success story. In its five years in business, the Irish pub has grown from being a bar with a game room to also a restaurant and soon will have its own on-site brewery.

It’s become a popular night spot and its comedy nights pack them in.

But it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that the owners considered actually buying their building in the heart of downtown at 109 W. Superior St. the former site of Snyder’s drugstore.

Their expansion to include a kitchen last year changed that, said Mike Maxim Jr. who owns the business with his father, Mike Sr.

Last month, their purchase of the building, from Eric Ringsred for $450,000 became final, city records show.

“Eric was looking to sell it,” Mike Jr. explained. “Before the food, we wouldn’t have considered it.”

Now, it’s clear they’re in it for the long haul. And that’s good for downtown.

  1. I believe the Irish curse near the entry is,”May a pitiless bureaucrat eat your corn flakes!” In my opinion, perfect!
