Minneapolis Piano Bar and Music Lounge


Nic’s Bar & Lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy a premium beverage in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Whether it’s after work or before a show, enjoy our carefully selected choices of micro-brews, small-batch bourbons, single-malt scotches and vintage ports.

In addition to our full menu, Nic’s Bar & Lounge features a chalkboard bar menu offering burgers, sandwiches and small plates.  The bar also offers a large “by the glass” wine offering from the Nicollet Island Inn’s award-winning wine list. And if the outdoors are more to your liking, enjoy the patio view of the Minneapolis skyline, just outside the bar doors (except in winter, of course).

Live Music at Nic’s Lounge

If dinner in our main dining room isn’t in your plans and the bar seems a bit too casual, join us in our piano lounge for a night of dining and entertainment.  Nic’s Lounge features a piano and a variety of singers to help enhance the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.

Every Saturday night beginning at 6:30, enjoy the musical stylings of local artist Cindi Scheffler.  Cindi’s captivating voice and broad repertoire are sure to entertain and delight as you ease into a carefree evening.
