Arnellia’s: Our Own Apollo

De'Monica Flye and Kendra GlennFor 25 years, Arnellia’s Bar and Restaurant in St. Paul is where generations of African Americans have gathered for live music, birthday celebrations, and even a weekly game of cards. Many local musicians started their careers here. Arnellia’s will be closing on April 30, 2017. I spoke to longtime customers and performers about the club’s legacy.
