Palm Tavern has been sold

The Palm Tavern, 2987 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., in Bay View, has been sold, according to a comment owner Bruno Johnson posted on his own Instagram post.

Following a tweet and a post on Instagram a couple days ago that said, "will be closing for some retooling and a touch of management change on Monday the 18th," a commenter asked, "did it sell." Johnson replied, "Yup. Sold."

Johnson opened the bar in 2003. It has been listed for sale in recent months. While that listing has been removed from Shorewest's web site, it remains on Century 21's.

The Palm Tavern has often been lauded locally and nationally for its great beer selection.

Johnson has not responded to a request for comment.
