Iron Ore Bar in Tower, Minnesota

I heard it referred to by one of the locals as “Beirut.” It’s actually quite the normal-looking bar on the inside.

That place is awesome!  About seven years ago or so Mike Wilson got Bone Appetit to drive up there and play the Tower "civic center."  We drank at the Iron Ore Bar all day.  It used to be a meat packing plant from what the bartender told us.  Good times.

3rd of July you can get a wristband and pretty much drink all around town.  They even sell beers from a fold up table on main street.  Great set up for minors.  [Beirut] hosts a huge outdoor concert...last time I went I spent most of my time being grateful I wasn't a cop.

We were up there two weeks ago, and the bartender told us it was an icehouse for a brewery next door, which was torn down long ago. So, who knows, but what a cool building.

According to an ad in the April 9 issue of the Ely Timberjay, the Iron Ore Bar ended operations Saturday night, April 9th, "due to a death in the family."

Bet you could get it for $300,000.

Now its down to $225,000. The artist's rendering of what it could look like is a far cry from its current look.
