The Black Water Lounge, located at 231 E. Superior Street in downtown Duluth, closed their doors after they hosted New Year celebrations at the end of 2018. This was due to the Superior Street reconstruction project and they expected at that that time to reopen in early or mid-2021.

Well, then the pandemic hit and it became unclear at that time if that reopening deadline would be able to remain.

Then earlier this year Black Water Lounge announced through their Facebook page that they would be reopening early next year. While "early 2022" is somewhat vague, one assumed at that time that it would certainly happen prior to spring.

Great news arrived Thursday, December 2, when Black Water Lounge confirmed that it would be way before spring! In fact it appears they will be opening once again very soon.

That short, sweet and exciting message was shared on their Facebook page:

The wait is almost over.... Opening January 2022.
Stay tuned for our official date announcement coming soon.

That means the doors could technically be open in less than a month. Either way, the wait is almost over, which is great news.
The Black Water Lounge has to offer. I believe they say it best, "Black Water Lounge is Duluth’s premiere martini lounge and nightclub. With a full bar, hand-crafted cocktails, exquisite lounge food, live jazz music and lady’s night, Black Water is the finest upscale martini bar in the Duluth-Superior area."

Hopefully their fondue and drinking and margaritas are once again offered, as those are my favorites. If you like a good cucumber press, that's also a customer favorite. Of course, if you just want a beer or simple drink they can handle that too.
