Longtime Mitchell Bar Changing Locations

Longtime Mitchell Bar Changing Locations

A longtime Mitchell bar is moving this week – filling a large vacancy on Main Street.  The Moonlight Bar is relocating to the former Jackpot Bar building.  The Jackpot has been closed since early 2012.  Local historian Lyle Swenson says the Moonlight Bar building has had a long and interesting history.  The front part of the building was built in 1887 as an office and music store.  The back end addition was built in 1914.  Bob’s Paint, Rugs, and Linoleum moved into the building in 1921.  It was a store and workshop in 1923, and it was home to the Harold Goodwin Furniture Store beginning in 1931.  At some point in the mid-1930’s, Swenson says it turned into a bar – Mack’s Bar.  It became the Moonlight Bar sometime in the 1940s.  It is not known what will be done with the current Moonlight Bar building.
