Do you take large parties?


With notice… Yes, we sure do! Please contact us 24 to 48 hours in advance for groups over 10. Advance notice will ensure better service for you and your guests. Please email:

It is important to note that even with advance notice the distillery is still first come, first served. Please be aware that weekends experience a significant increase in volume here at the cocktail room. Groups larger than 10 who do not contact us in advance are not guaranteed service. Depending on our capacity, large parties may also experience increased wait times and/or we may only have standing bar options available without a space rental. Parties over 10 are subject to a one check rule. We want to give everyone the very best experience and these policies help us to ensure proper staffing, stock, and space for all.

Private rentals require advance reservations. For venue buyouts, or space reservations please email with the date, number of guests, time you’re looking to rent space and any other important details.

What is going on with the construction on Taft St.?

The Mid City Reconstruction project is underway and will be completed in early fall. At different points throughout the process, parking and access to Taft St. may be limited at times. For the most up to date information, please click here. As of 10/4 Taft is best accessed from Hennepin, guests should access us from the BPEX parking lot. We are across from Ever Sharp. When in doubt follow the construction signs. Street parking is unfortunately tricky at the moment, LOT PARKING is okay.
