This bar/lounge was once the penthouse residence of the developer of the Foshay Tower at its highest occupied floor, so the place is a collection of spaces. Each offers a different view of the city. Service was attentive and friendly, drinks were excellent. A cool...More

A waiter from a local restaurant suggested a visit to Prohibition after dinner. The view was great, and the service attentive, but not overwhelming. Drinks in the $15 range. A mixed crowd of mixed dress. Glad to have checked it out.

Our conference rented the space for a evening social, and it was packed, but the decor was amazing, and I wished I could be there when there were fewer people! Loved the experience. A real treasure in downtown Minneaplois.

A unique retro feel to this 27th floor hideaway. Lots of unique sitting areas to gather with friends...or make new ones!

Got here on a recommendation and was worth it. Great views and sitting options plus the ability to order desserts from Manny's downstairs. Good local beers but nothing on tap. Great scotch selection.

As usual W made a hotspot out of a very old an interesting building. The bar itself was crowded but you were able to buy yourself in a VIP area with more space. The service was very attentive and the price range not too crazy....More
