As the name implies, Om is a den of serenity. The surroundings are lush, decorated in rich jewel tones, filled with Indian-influenced artwork and fabrics. Housed in the former Nate's Clothing building in downtown Minneapolis, Om is the place for having an intimate conversation while tucked in a cozy corner. Happy hour is a perfect time to experience these delicious surroundings. The early happy hour does not end until 7 p.m., which eliminates the rush over to catch the deals. With both early and late hours, the choice is yours to end a workday, sip an early drink after a Saturday or Sunday outdoors, or partake in the sexiness of Om late night. The late happy hour offers $5 appetizers, a nice time to try some of Om's sumptuous contemporary Indian cuisine.
