PIANO BAR| Lounge
The bar at the corner of East Hennepin Avenue and Lourdes Place (org. Prince Street) was called Nye’s since1950, when Albin Nye took over Prince Café owned by Hefron’s, a “working man’s bar” occupying the 1880’s building. From the beginning whenever it was open, Al, a former machine shop foreman at Minar Ford, wasdetermined to be there serving drinks to the mostly blue-collar Northeast crowd.
Al retired in 1994 at the age of 79, and he continued to frequent Nye’s as a customer until his death at the age of 89 in 2004. Nye’s Polonaise Room was sold in 1994 to Steve Anderly and subsequently sold to two Northeast descendants Rob and Tony Jacob in 1999. The Jacob Brothers continued to operate the legendary Nye’s Bar.
