After 32 years in business, Sneakers Sports Bar & Grill in the Duluth skywalk has closed its doors for good.
The pub in the Holiday Center had its last day on Sunday and closed to make way for the new Lyric Kitchen-Bar slated to open Oct. 30.
“One of the things that our hotel needed was a great restaurant for dinner that would work great for families, along with the corporate traveler, the leisure traveler,” said Gerry Goldfarb, Holiday Inn & Suites general manager. “Sneakers was more of a bar and grill with all high top seating. The Lyric will have a bar with high top seating but with a wonderful array of booth seating and tabletop seating as well.”
Sneakers employees - and kitchen equipment - will join the renovated and reimagined restaurant on the Superior Street level of the Holiday Center. Formerly known as Porters, the Lyric will incorporate old favorites from Sneakers and Porters with a breadth of new dishes as well, Goldfarb said.
