About Us

Pete and Molly Skinner are life-long Saint Paul residents and have owned Skinner’s since July of 2000. Pete has cooked at perhaps twenty different bars and restaurants in Saint Paul and knows his way around the grill. In fact, Pete met Molly while they were both working at the former Tower Tap on Snelling. Pete and Molly had been looking to open their own place for many years when the opportunity to open Skinner’s Pub came along. They continue to work to improve the place and make sure everyone has a great time when they are here.

About the Building

This location has been the home to bars and restaurants for many years; previously operating as Novak’s, Sonny’s, and Paul’s Place. It is truly a neighborhood institution. For much of the early part of the twentieth century, the dining room was the home of the Vogelgesang Grocery Store.
