The library building in Uptown is reopening this summer.

The library building in Uptown is reopening this summer.

You've likely driven past it dozens of times: the stately but vacant old library building on Hennepin Avenue. Soon, this treasure will re-open as a private event center, and when not booked, the space will be open to the public.

"Mansion at Uptown," as it will be called, will open this summer and be available for private corporate events, weddings, proms, and other events. The public will enjoy cocktails and bar food when the space is not occupied by an event. There will also be a prominent wraparound deck and patio. Start planning your fancy soirées.

Opening soon 

2901 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis

612-564-3777
