About us

Beginning construction in 2011, Alvin Berg & Vince Nelson began transforming the historic Daro Building in downtown Duluth, giving the building new life and the legacy we all know as The Flame Nightclub Duluth. Opening it's doors as Duluth's First Gay bar in July 2012.

Fast forward to January 2020, Justin Vranish & his partner Jared Hull purchased the iconic bar, looking forward to their turn at continuing the legacy and serving their hometown.

At The Flame Duluth we strive to be the bar that everyone feels comfortable at, the community bar for the LGBTQ community as well as a fun, energetic nightclub that can cater to all. Minutes from Canal Park, in historic downtown Duluth, we look forward to seeing you soon!
