History

While it was operating as a saloon as far as back as the late 1800s, the bar didn’t officially become recorded as the Triangle Bar until 1946. By the early 1960s, the West Bank area of Minneapolis became a center of a burgeoning music scene, centered on the Triangle Bar. The West Bank was accessible to the University of Minnesota, alcohol was cheap (and the Triangle didn’t card), so students flocked there. The Triangle began hosting live music in 1964 and continued to do so through the late 1960s. It was likely the first Minneapolis bar to host live music that wasn’t made up of top 40 cover bands. Some of the local musical talent that the Triangle regularly hosted: -Spider John Koerner -Lazy Bill Lucas -John Kolstad -Steve Trosberg -Dave Ray -Willie Murphy and the Bees Over the years, the Triangle Bar Building has traded hands and been the Ole Piper Inn and Oscar B. Lykes restaurant-tavern. Currently it is an office and commercial building owned by the Triangle Building Partnership.
