Say farewell to Nye's Polonaise at Target Field on May 30

Twins fan or not, visitors can say farewell with the club to Nye's Polonaise Room on Saturday, May 30 at Target Field.

Patrons, fans and friends can purchase a discounted ticket to see the Twins take on the Toronto Blue Jays and before the game, the Twins will host a pregame party featuring the "World's Most Dangerous Polka Band" along with Polish food and drink specials.

The pregame party will take place at the Target Field Station from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In January, developers announced the two oldest buildings that comprise Nye's Polonaise Room in northeast Minneapolis will be saved, but it's unclear what will be going inside. The bar hasn't announced closing time.

In December, Nye's owners announced the 65-year-old Polish polka and piano fixture would close. Owner Rob Jacobs confirmed the venue's two oldest buildings – each 100 years old -- will be saved an incorporated into "retail," which will sit next to a 29-story apartment tower. Jacobs is a partner in the development, along with Schafer Richardson.

The three-story building with the "Harness Shop" sign on top and a two-story building that goes around the corner will be salvaged, the Star Tribune reported. The project is being called 116 East Hennepin.

Plenty of nostalgia poured out from the community upon the announcement of the restaurant's closure.
