Downtown Bar Closing It’s Doors For Good

The downtown bar scene in Mankato is now minus one.

Jonny B’s on the Plaza has closed its doors, with ownership saying they just couldn’t find the success with the concept at that location as they have with their spot near MSU-Mankato. The Jonny B’s in the Univesity Square Mall (1600 Warren Street) will stay open.

Work on transforming the closed Jonny B’s space for a new tenant is underway, but as of yet, those in charge aren’t ready to say what the concept will be, what it will be called or when it will open.
