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!

  2. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.

    It seems like some of the written text on your posts are
    running off the screen. Can someone else
    please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This may be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Cheers

  3. Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written much better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I will send this information to him. Pretty sure he will have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!
