Triple Rock Social Club is closing

Triple Rock announced the sad news in a Facebook post published Monday afternoon. 

Opened as a bar in 1998, Triple Rock has been hosting concerts since 2003. Since then, it’s hosted thousands of punk, metal, indie rock, and hip-hop acts. 

The “T-Rock,” as some regulars knew it, has never hurt for acts wanting to play there. Not even now: A glance at the venue’s calendar shows concerts booked almost nightly through the end of October, and a few already scheduled for November. 

The bar/venue was owned by husband-and-wife duo Erik and Gretchen Funk. 

A search of Hennepin County property records shows the building itself was constructed in 1901, and is owned by Yellow Crown Inc., based in St. Paul.
