|Union, the newly open bar/restaurant at the intersection of Hennepin Ave & Eighth Street|
Today marks the opening of one of the most anticipated restaurants of the year. Tonight, Union Bar & Restaurant, in downtown Minneapolis at the corner of Hennepin Avenue and Eighth Street (in the old Shinders spot), will host its first public dinner service.
Union is owned and operated by the same folks who brought us the local, now national, chain restaurant Crave. But Union is nothing like its corporatized older sibling, although it's not necessarily the renegade rebel child either. Union boasts an elegant dining space with an incredible four-season rooftop that allows diners to gaze out at the downtown skyscape.
A recent preview party allowed us a sneak peek at the new spot.
