Sound, the restaurant at Duluth’s former city hall at 132 E. Superior St., has closed and is slated to re-open in a month with a renewed focus on hosting events.

“A group of us are going to open a new restaurant and event space that will focus primarily on events in the city,” Dennis Kempton told the News Tribune. “People can book the entire restaurant and event room upstairs.”

There won’t be too many other changes, including to the name: The new space will be called Sound Eatery & Events and will have normal dinner hours between events, Kempton said. It is tentatively set to open at the end of July.

Sound started slinging upscale cuisine in January after taking over the space formerly occupied by the Blind Pig and Tycoon’s. It has hosted touring acts such as Dessa and G. Love and Special Sauce.

Rathskeller, the bar in the basement of the building, is separately owned and will continue operating as normal.
