Imperial Room

417 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-376-7676

Location Description:

With its handsome interior and enforced dress code (don"t bother coming down with ripped jeans, and keep the ball cap on straight), the Imperial Room is shooting for a classier place to pass the time downtown. The menu sticks to straightforward fare, with plenty of appetizers, "small plates," sandwiches, and burgers for under $10. A dinner of pan-fried walleye, BBQ baby back ribs, or beef tenderloin will set you back $16 to $18 for the meal. If you want a private gathering, the V.I.P. lounge is available, and the dress code does get relaxed (a tad) for game day.
