Jade Fountain tiki bar opens Aug. 7

The new Jade Fountain tiki bar has its grand opening scheduled for Friday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. The space will be limited to 50 patrons at a time due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19. Drinks will be pre-made for additional safety.

As Perfect Duluth Day first reported in March, the former Chinese restaurant at 305 N. Central Ave. is now under the management of longtime Duluth bartender Kai Soderberg and his wife Mariah.

In addition to booze, there will be a small-plate food menu featuring items supplied by the kitchen of the adjacent Gannucci’s Italian Market.

Much of the decor from the Chinese restaurant has been retained, along with additional items supplied by Paul Durham, owner of Strange Boutiques in Uptown Minneapolis.

Jade Fountain’s liquor license extends to the courtyard behind the building, where drinks will also be served.

When the COVID-19 threat reduces, the bar will host live music and other events. During the pandemic, Soderberg will rent out the space for private parties.

Jade Fountain’s general hours of operation will be 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Photos in this post were supplied by Soderberg.
