The lights are off. The iconic sign is down. The pool tables and TVs are gone. Duluth's Twins Bar is closed. Again. 

An eviction notice was posted on the window of the bar on East 4th Street in Duluth on Tuesday. 

Earlier this month, a member of Duluth's Alcohol, Gambling, and Tobacco Commission said there have been gun issues, fights and even allegations of prostitution since the Hillside bar reopened under new ownership in November. The commission recommended that the liquor license be revoked. 

Charlie Lemon, who rents out the space, says bar owner Carl Green is several months late on rent. Lemon says Green failed to show up for a court hearing about his eviction. The judge ruled in Lemon's favor.
