A Bar of Their Own - Minneapolis, MN

It's called A Bar of Their Own which I seriously love. If you don't get the reference, there's a movie called 'A League of Their Own' about the women who play pro baseball during World War II.

The story of A Bar of Their Own begins last year, in 2023. Some friends wanted to go out to watch the Minnesota Gophers softball team play in the national tournament. Well, when they got to the bar there were 20+ TVs and they were all showing reruns of football games or a bags tournament.

How weird that they weren't playing the national tournament that one of our home teams was in. And that's when the idea of A Bar of Their Own took shape.

What if fans of women’s sports had a place to come together and cheer loudly for their favorite team on the biggest screen in the bar…with the sound on?

What if those same fans had a wide variety of food and beverage options, including a robust menu accommodating different dietary needs with a killer craft beer selection and tasty mocktails?
