One of the most popular nightspots in the Bismarck-Mandan area is about to get a makeover.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Captain Freddy's in Mandan has closed and is set to get a new look and name.

One employee said the staff was notified via text that their services were no longer needed.

The Tribune says Chris Volk, Tomm Doll and managing partners Bill and Jacey Kramer are taking control of the restaurant, which will close for a two-week renovation, re-opening as Rock Point, "a bar and live music venue featuring nationally touring bands."
