So you want to get a drink somewhere that makes you feel a little fancy. Maybe you’re kicking off a bachelorette party or just got your first corporate card or you’re simply staying upstairs and want a good cocktail. The bar at the Hewing Hotel in the North Loop is where you should go. This Nordic-inspired hotel is one of the most beautiful places in Minneapolis to drink at and they have lots of great cocktails to choose from. There’s a pool table, a roaring fire, and a lounge area that will undoubtedly make you think of “leather-bound books and rich mahogany.” It’s not somewhere we go often and you’ll pay a lot for drinks, but after your first one, you’ll be too busy wishing you lived at the Hewing to care.
