Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015 was the last day of business for Mattie’s on Main. A note was left on the door thanking the community for its support. On Facebook, Mattie’s said, “Thank you for being a friend.”
Tom DeGree and Dean Schlaak, owners of Wilde Roast Cafe on old St. Anthony Main St., launched Mattie St. Clair’s House of Spirits on Main Street (shortened to Mattie’s on Main) in early 2014 in the former Kikugawa space.
The venue hosted countless LGBT artists including Duelling Drag Divas, B. Louise Naughty Trivia, Martina’s Broadway Cabaret, Ladies who Brunch, and musicians Eric Himan and Tom Goss. The venue also featured blues, jazz, Pride events, and LGBT community celebrations.
The Kinsey Sicks were slated to perform at Mattie’s later this month, and that show has been moved to the Saloon.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
