Bye to Neighborhood Landmark: O'Gara's
For 77 years, Twin Citians have known O’Gara’s Bar & Grill on the corner of Snelling and Selby—a casual place for comfort food, tasty brews at lunch or dinner, familiar faces, Shamrock Shuttle buses to and from sports games and live entertainment, block-long tents for outdoor events, and catered parties. It’s been a family business since 1941.Alas! O'Gara's will no longer be around.
A five-story apartment building, Harper, is being erected, with 163 rental apartments and a co-workspace area for day office rental. The space that O'Gara's initially was to occupy is now open for a different owner.
O’Gara’s created thousands of memories for its customers, co-workers, friends and business associates. There have been first dates, reunions, birthdays, engagements, weddings—you name it! So, in leaving, we wish the O'Gara's families a most most wonderful, happy future.
