The Terrace

This beautiful outdoor space has outstanding views of the downtown Minneapolis skyline and Northrop Mall. The Terrace is a popular spot for wedding ceremonies, receptions, department events, reunions, and parties.
During the warmer months, the Terrace is open for members during lunch.  The Terrace is perfectly situated for summer sun, and with our fourth floor location, sunsets are a treat.
Seating is casual. We have tables that seat 4, 6, 8, or more as well as hightop tables for 2 or 3 along the north side of the Terrace. Comfortable lounge furniture is arranged in cozy groups at either end of the Terrace. You won’t find a better place for a late afternoon summer get-together with your friends or colleagues! 

If you reserve the Terrace you must also reserve the adjacent Lounge Corridor as a backup space.
