Grand Avenue bar Wild Onion to become Red Rabbit

The Wild Onion on Grand Avenue is being bought by the restaurant group that runs the Red Cow bar and restaurant on nearby Selby Avenue.

The Wild Onion announced the sale in social media posts on Saturday.

“For some 20 years, we have had a lot of fun — provided great food, good drinks, entertainment and camaraderie. Sadly every run eventually comes to an end. The Wild Onion’s run is ending March 31, 2018,” the post read.

After the Wild Onion’s closure, the bar and restaurant will reopen as a Red Rabbit bar and restaurant, the announcement said. Known for its cocktails, a Red Rabbit opened in late 2016 in the North Loop area of Minneapolis with a menu of pizzas and pastas and a whole book of “social lubricants.”

The Red Rabbit will be a “great addition to Grand Avenue,” the Wild Onion said in its announcement.

The Wild Onion is promising food and drink specials every day for its final six weeks in appreciation of its customers, neighbors and staff.
