Best Make-Out Spot

Prohibition, W Minneapolis—The Foshay

Towering 27 floors high in the historic Foshay Tower, and originally designed as Wilbur Foshay's private retreat, this sexy bar atop the W Hotel Minneapolis serves specialty martinis and your not-so-standard bar fare snacks. Indulge in a plate of truffled deviled eggs and tenderloin carpaccio at a romantic table for two, sprawl out on the creme-colored leather bed tucked away near the loft, or cozy up and get to lip-locking with your date on the L-shaped, velvet-covered couch in the Moon Room. Wherever your taste, the romantic 360-degree view with your lover will surely be a memorable one.
