The Dakota is a rare gem in the Minneapolis entertainment scene. One of few establishments to serve a full, chef-driven menu paired with world-class music performances seven nights a week, the Dakota is more than a restaurant and more than a music club; it’s where love of great food and great music come together as a seamless duet.
We’ve been around the Twin Cities for over 25 years. We feel community involvement is important and we model this by really getting involved with community efforts, benefits and fundraisers.
Established in 1985, the Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant opened in St. Paul and has since moved to downtown Minneapolis. We are proud of our history as a part of the Twin Cities community.
