Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant

Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant

Map
1010 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403 , United States

Jazz enthusiasts of every stripe gather at this nationally renowned venue to hear local talent and touring musicians—everyone from vocalists like Nellie McKay to the ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro. A large balcony wraps around the stage, providing generous sight lines and preserving the intimacy of a smaller club. The dimly lit interior is warm and luxurious with exposed brick, dark wood, and a wall of artfully displayed—and still full—wine bottles sacrificed in the name of ambience. Although there’s no drink minimum or obligation to order dinner, the Dakota Restaurant matches the quality onstage with equally excellent contemporary American fare.

 

Tip: To guarantee the best seating, request a first-floor booth for two when making reservations.

 

Signature Cocktail: Bitches Brew (named after the Miles Davis album), made with brandy, soda, and sours, served with a shot each of pear vodka and sweet pepper syrup on the side to add at your own risk.
