Mike Zimmer will reopen his sports bar and restaurant, Zim's, in the Walker's Point neighborhood at 814 S. 2nd St., in a building that most recently housed the Fifth Ward Pub and Grill.
Zim's opened originally in 2006 at 770 N. Milwaukee St. in Downtown Milwaukee. It closed this location in February.
Zimmer says he's "aiming for late July."
OnMilwaukee.com will have more on the Zim's reopening in the coming weeks.
