When you think about The Zoo Bar in Aberdeen, the college party scene may be your initial impression, but The Zoo is more than just the typical “college bar.” As of August 2020, the bar officially became a wedding and event venue.
The idea of offering the location as a wedding and event venue has been in the works for a couple years because of the extensive remodeling and the addition of the outdoor patio. Lowell and Denise Punt, owners of The Zoo Bar, waited for the right opportunity. Their daughter’s wedding reception set the plan in motion.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lowell and Denise’s daughter and son-in-law were forced to postpone their wedding. When rescheduling, the couple had limited options, but the spacious layout of The Zoo with the bonus of an outdoor patio became the perfect place for them.
Since then, the venue has hosted multiple events, including the Aberdeen Area Wrestling Fundraiser. The months ahead are also looking bright for The Zoo Bar as other customers have already scheduled their events with the new service.
This venue has the complete package. Clients have exclusive access to the location from 8:00 AM to 10:30 PM the day of their event with a full wait staff, bartenders, and a DJ. The entertainment feature includes dance floor lights, a microphone, and five projector screens.
If you are looking for a place to host your event, The Zoo Bar is an established business and is welcoming everyone to try out their new wedding and event venue on 1017 South Main Street in Aberdeen. //– Josie Clemens
