On March 19th, 2001, 70 roll off dumpsters and 16 months later, Owner/Designer and sometimes chef Jason McLean and friends packed up the toolcase and fileted the ribbon on his latest homage to the spirit of theater and hand-made splendor, a Restaurant and Nightclub.

According to Mclean, “Like the original Loring Park location, Dinkytown has a heretofore overlooked charm. It’s a great, easy to get to location and has a life spurred by Northrup Concerts, Gopher Sports, and the cultural and social ferment that IS the University experience. These super-forces will cojoin and coalesce with the Loring’s commitment to the food, live music performance, community and the arts; I predict a natural synergy will again result.”

McLean predicted right. Today, the thriving Dinkytown neighborhood, one of the few havens for independent businesses in Minneapolis, boasts a wealth of fascinating retail, dining, and nightlife options. The Loring Pasta Bar is the social and cultural hub of this funky, eclectic free-for-all. The Loring Past Bar honors its proximity to the adjacent University of Minnesota campus by providing an enchanting selection of edibles & potables at student-friendly prices, as well as what might very well be the most comfortable facilities for studying and/or hanging out in all of Minnesota. The Loring Pasta Bar offers a veritable cornucopia of live and DJ music options throughout the week – and even the day! And, last but hardly least the LPB is simply gorgeous.
