Pre-Piccolo Cocktail

My wife and I are having dinner at Piccolo Wed night to celebrate our anniversary. Any recommended places for a pre-dinner cocktail ? Somewhere close to the restaurant preferred. Thanks!

  1. Cafe Maude?
    Otherwise I'd think your best bet is either Uptown or Lyn-Lake (if you want something other than just wine or beer). Heidi's has good cocktails; Il Gatto and Barbette also have good drinks. There's just not a lot of cocktail options in the more neighborhood-y areas, they usually only have a wine/beer license.

    Cafe Maude
    5411 Penn Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55419

    Il Gatto
    3001 Hennepin Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55408

    1. Piccolo is at 43rd and Bryant. Here are some nearby places. But all of them may be beer and wine only.

      King's Wne Bar at 46th and Grand
      Cafe Ena at 46th and Grand
      Gigi's at 36th and Bryant
