Buffalo Wild Wings Grill and Bar Buffalo Wild Wings began construction Wednesday for its new restaurant in the historic Station 19 building, across from TCF Bank Stadium. The Minneapolis City Council approved the barâÄôs liquor license Sept. 3 with a few conditions set by the community to ensure it operates responsibly, Ward 2 city council member Cam Gordon said. âÄúI that this is something that will really help Station 19 building,âÄù Gordon said. âÄúNot only is there the potential to bring some kind of economic development and small business to serve the community theyâÄôre in, but also itâÄôs something thatâÄôs going to help support the other businesses in the Station 19 building.âÄù In addition to the liquor license, the city also approved an outdoor patio to seat 116 people. The restaurant is scheduled to open in December.

The building it will occupy has sat empty since MilioâÄôs Sandwiches left it a year ago. The shop is currently going through significant remodeling. The opening is concurrent with protests by Jimmy JohnâÄôs employees for higher wages and a better working environment.
