Co-worker told me about this place so I suggested it to a few other co-workers after work. We were disappointed. Supposedly had views but most of the are blocked by the outside structure of the building. The drinks were just ok but the food items from the happy hour menu were extremely disaapointing. I would nor return. The waitress was very late in getting a spoon we requested and completely forgot to bring the second glass of wine I ordered.

“PRohibition Bar at the W hotel was an experience!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Had a great time at the Prohibition Bar on the 27th floor of the W Hotel. Great Prohibition Era parlor style bar with good views of Minneapolis and great ambiance. Then we went down stairs where the dance floor was packed and the music was a wide variety and good!

“Dress up!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Came here on a Saturday night and I felt totally under dressed. Hot girl disguises everywhere! Expensive drinks ($12), but worth it for the people watching and swanky private areas. Dance club on the main floor and then go up to the 27th floor to chill for awhile.

“Great Bar!”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

During my visit to Minneapolis, someone suggested trying out Prohibition bar. They told me about the wonderful views as well as some history of the building during prohibition. The bar is beautiful. Comfy chairs, and lounge chairs, window seats and original wood work. It was very quiet when we arrived around 10 and there was even someone reading while there. A pretty quite place it seemed. About an hour later it was getting much busier and it looked like it was a very popular place. Really nice. Only disappointment was that we were looking forward to being able to go on the observation deck, but apparently that isn't a part of the bar and the hours for that are only 11 am to 9 pm.
