Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Family run since 1910, this historic spot has long been a favorite in its Northern Minneapolis neighborhood, beloved for its welcoming staff, warm atmosphere, and the uncompromising quality of its menu.
  • Whether you opt for a room that’s grand or intimate, you’ll be treated to charming details like coffered ceilings of dark wood, crackling fireplaces, and inviting lighting provided by vintage-style chandeliers and sconces.
  • We’re especially taken with the Cavalier Bar—used on its own for an intimate cocktail party or in conjunction with the elegant Cosmopolitan Room, it’s certain to delight your guests with its cozy, den-inspired vibe.
