Behind the purple door. Try the Tomas Collins and Oliveto! A bit shady to walk here from downtown. Take a cab.

Great selection of drinks that they make or pretty much anything you want or can think of. Cool interior and a fun atmosphere. Great for a drink before or after dinner at The Bachelor Farmer.
Mixologists seem to be the new rockstars in town. They’re popping up everywhere: Eat Street, Loring, and the ever-hip North Loop. With their fancy tools, egg whites, and strong shaker-arms, Mixologists are taking Twin Cities drinkers by storm. So I thought it was about time the Minneapolites check out what all the buzz was about at one of the pioneer establishments: Marvel Bar.
All of the drinks were a treat, as they should be at an average of $10 apiece. We paid our tab, cringing a little at the expensive bill. My 20-something salary doesn’t do well with drinks over $6.
Overall, though, it was an experience. The speakeasy atmosphere, modern decor, friendly service, and phenomenal drinks made for a memorable night out.
After you enter that questionable purple door you find yourself in a world of fantastic design, warm lighting, and fancy drinks. What could be better?
The all male cast of mixologists focused on preparing the drinks with little smalltalk or friendly banter involved. They helped us make wise $10 choices and even brought us a few samples along the way!
Drinks have never looked more appealing. Each perfectly shaped glass had just the right amount of foam or bubbly.
The drinks were a treat! The thoughtful mix of alcohols, bitters and fruits were unique without being overly complex.
Value for Dollar:
Value is not the reason you come to Marvel Bar. The drinks are expensive for us Midwesterners. Instead, city-goers come for the laid-back vibe and killer cocktails.

Extremely knowledgeable mixologists. The lounge has a great atmosphere and the staff is really cool and personable. Next time I we plan to eat at the restaurant upstairs above the lounge. You might have a bit of trouble finding the bar since there isn't a sign out front just a guy checking ID's at a corner. If you like perfection in your mixed drinks this is the place to go.
If you like fresh and different this place is for you... Let your knowledgable staff tell you what to order, they will not stir you wrong. great place for a date or a gathering of the chill kind. Thanks Steven.
