Dear Friends,                                                                                                                 June 12, 2020


It is with very heavy hearts we share with you that Oliver’s Wine Bar, as we know it, will close due to the continuing effects of COVID-19 and the indefinite restrictions and unknown future of hospitality that we are currently facing. As many of you know, our goal from the beginning six years ago was to create and nurture a downtown gathering spot and then pursue an experienced and talented restauranteur/new owner to continue with what we have created. At this time, it is the best decision for us to offer the building to a new investor who can be part of the next generation of investing in our vibrant and charming downtown.


If you've experienced Oliver's you know the feeling of a place everyone enjoys—sexy lighting, cool music, date night and family gatherings, dinner before a Sheldon event or a concert at Treasure Island, friends laughing and connecting… you understand that vibe. We love that we created a place where people put down their phones, were engaged in conversations, and enjoyed good food and memorable interaction with our amazing staff. Thank you for sharing your life’s moments with us at Oliver’s!


We are tremendously grateful to our Red Wing community for the many adventures and friendships during the past 22 years. We can’t begin to express our appreciation to our wonderful staff for caring about Oliver’s, and for their integral part in making our business a well-loved and special place in downtown. And to everyone, thank you for supporting our businesses over the years and always welcoming us to this community.


Be a little sad for the loss of Oliver’s but please look forward to the future of our corner of downtown! Be well during these challenging times and please take care of each other.


Our best wishes always,

Brian, Tom & Oliver (the dog)



it is now more important than ever to help them get back on their feet!
