The drinks are all hand crafted, even the ice is hand chiseled for each drink, so expect it to take a moment to get things right. The cocktails are delicious. The place is small, so wouldn't recommend it for a group over 4, but we were there while larger groups tried.

in addition to having the sweetest kindest bouncers in the city the marvel bar's cocktails are spectacular, the place is tiny and can get pretty packed but it definitely came across as a super popular spot, i am a sucker for a good manhattan so ordered that and they didn't disappoint, my boyfriend wanted to experiment and got the oliveto...

It's a speakeasy... that anyone can find. I'm waiting for this particular brand of faux exclusivity to die out. Some cocktails are interesting and I appreciate the emphasis on less sweet options. The decor and environment is on-trend and could be comfortable, but is more often than not jammed to the gills. Service has been dismal: over 20 minutes just... More

This is pure North Loop Minneapolis. 100 year old post and beam building, hidden entrance, very classy loft decor and most importantly really special cocktails.

Great place to visit for drinks. Cool atmosphere, although being in a basement its a bit dark for summer fun. Drinks are diverse and they'll help you find what you want for flavors.

We go to Marvel Bar at least once every few months and never leave disappointed! Between the atmosphere and the unique drinks, this has to be my favorite bar in Minneapolis. Prepare for pricey drinks but it's well worth it for the experience.

I may have been a little under dressed when I found my way to Marvel bar. Don't look for the sign, just look for the bouncer standing outside an unmarked back door and make your way in through the purple door, as it is the most fun. The crowd was pretty low key at 7 on a Friday night and... More

We were there Friday to celebrate my daughters birthday and couldn't be happier. Service was excellent, very friendly and took the time to explain the drinks. Loved the location walked by it many times before I knew it was there. If you prefer mixed drinks this is the place. Would definitely recommend

Almost a mandatory stop anytime I'm in Minneapolis. One of the top cocktail bars in the nation, and one of the absolute upper pinnacle of the staff friendliness matching the execution of the drinks. Peder/Matt/Tyler and team are great.

The only "speakeasy" downtown that I know of. Basement setting, unmarked door, etc. Great place to take friends in town for a visit. Cocktails are expensive, but very good. And you get the show of a bartender spending 5 minutes on the mixology if that's your bag. Only negatives: Can be tough to find a seat, especially if you have... More
