RIP Valhalla.

Valhalla has closed on Old World Third Street

Valhalla, the Scandinavian bar and restaurant located at 1111 N. Old World 3rd St. has closed.

The venue, which had stopped serving food in early October, announced its closing on Facebook earlier today. The message was simple and to the point: "Thank you for your support. Unfortunately, Valhalla has closed. A new restaurant and bar is planned for the space in 2018."

The Third Street bar, which opened last March, was operated by Ken and Melissa McNulty, owners of the Wisconsin Cheese Mart and Uber Tap Room.

In a phone conversation this afternoon, Melissa expressed mixed emotions over the closing. "We really put our heart and soul into the concept," she said. "But, in the end, we weren't able to put the energy into running the business that it deserved. Ultimately, we had to make the decision to devote our energy to the cheese business and tap room."

She did note that a buyer has come forward for the building; however she added that she could not disclose information on plans for the space at this time.
