A dilapidated corner in downtown Minneapolis needed something fresh and exciting. Well-known area restaurateur, Kam Talebi saw the potential for an excellent dining experience where an old bookstore once stood. The Union Fish Market and Rooftop became one of the finest dining experiences in Minneapolis. Detailed renovations, well-known chefs, bartenders with reputations for creative cocktails and an unsurpassed patio dining experience were the ingredients for this restaurant’s success. The response and buzz were incredible!
The Union Fish Market and Rooftop is just around the block from Target Field in the heart of Minneapolis. In a city with a reputation for tough winter weather, a retractable roof with open-air dining is unique. At street level, Fish Market diners have an array of cooked seafood-centered plates to choose from or they can enjoy their seafood fresh and raw. The rooftop however is where where the real magic awaits.
Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Rick Nelson shared his experience at Union Rooftop in a review commenting, “The rooftop is a world apart, a soaring, energetic and crisply elegant space that’s so transporting that the IDS Tower, our reassuring compass, is the only indicator that you’ve remained in Minneapolis. It’s a thriller at lunch, when the eye sees only sky and skyscrapers. By night, it’s urbanity personified, and an instant point of pride for the city.”1
It’s not easy to create a year-round indoor/outdoor patio dining experience on the roof of a historical building. The 12-paneled, free-standing, retractable roof covers the bar and provides plenty of dining space for patrons. For added comfort, heaters can warm the space for those really cold days. The retractable roof is open whenever possible and when temperatures are too cool, it closes with the touch of a button. It takes fewer than five minutes to open or close the motorized structure and its NanaWall doors, that seal off the inside dining room.
