The historic Machine Shop has returned in full force as one of the hottest venues in the city. Originally built in 1916, the building was originally used a machinery shop for the Pillsbury A-Mill. Now, it’s an industrial-chic event space as of July 2016. “The building has been carefully restored, keeping the surviving original 1916 architectural details intact,” says Stephanie Guidera, director of sales and marketing. “The floors on both levels, the ceiling structure, many light fixtures, beautiful brickwork, window frames, and equipment, including the iconic orange gantry and crane, are original to the building.” 

The venue has more than 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and is able to hold from 100 to 1,000 guests. It hosts everything from public events to lavish private parties. 

Graves Hospitality has proposed plans for a future development on the current site that will necessitate the immediate closing of Bradstreet Craftshouse in Minneapolis.

The restuarant opened in 2009 in the downtown Minneapolis Graves 601 Hotel. In 2014, Graves Hospitality sold the hotel and the Bradstreet concept was moved to the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis. It opened again in 2015. In approximately 14 months, Bradstreet will open within the InterContinental Hotel, which will be directly connected by skyway to Terminal One of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

 

One highway exit away from Minnesota's largest city, there’s an oasis of free parking, great shopping and a bustling social scene. “We like to say that we’re so close to Minneapolis, we share a ZIP code,” says Becky Bakken, president and CEO of Discover St. Louis Park. “We’re convenient and near all the experiences and activities that meeting and event participants want.” 

 

The fast-casual Chicago-style food concept, Portillo’s, will be opening its first Minnesota location at 8450 Hudson Rd. in Woodbury at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 11. The new location marks the brand’s 50th restaurant opening.

The restaurant will feature a 1920s theme with décor inspired by the Prohibition era. The restaurant will include seating for more than 200 guests, with double drive-thru lanes and an outdoor patio.
