Countdown to 2019

You Belong at the Dakota


“I know for me, 2019 is a year of love and truth. We need the feelings of love and belonging more than ever. I’m hoping to shine that light on everyone in the audience.” – Davina

The Dakota is one of those places that has seldom needed a reason to throw a big party, and with 2018 coming to an end; we’re throwing the biggest New Year’s Eve event for any music enthusiast in the Twin Cities!  Back by popular demand, Davina and the Vagabonds will take the stage this December 31st for what will surely be a night of truth and love for all to share.

Why cram yourself into those crowded bars or outside in those cold, Minnesota streets when you can be in the intimate space of music at one of the Twin Cities’ hottest music venues with farm-to-table menu options from carnivore to vegetarian? Ring in the New Year in great company, world-renowned music, and one of the finest spirit and wine selections in Minneapolis. You’ll have more to celebrate with than just champagne.

Two shows on the evening of December 31st are how we’re choosing to celebrate: The 6PM show includes a 5-course dinner (set menu), music, tax + gratuity. Come early at 5:30PM for one-hour duets by the charming Charmin Michelle (vocals) and Joel Shapira (guitar). The 10PM Cocktail-and-Countdown show includes music, a $20 food/beverage voucher, and a midnight bubbly toast.

We treat every corner of the room like it’s the VIP area and New Year’s Eve will be no different. On days like this, the staff comes in early to turn what is already a magnificent room into a glitzy wonderland. Experience New Year’s with those excited to share it with you. This New Year’s Eve, join us at the Dakota.

(And for you New Year’s Eve homebodies, we have a special encore performance with Davina on New Year’s Day!)

Want to celebrate New Year’s Eve speakeasy-style in St. Paul? Then our sister club Vieux Carré is for you! Check out the 6PM dinner show with the Southside Aces and the 10:30PM cocktail show with the Joyann Parker Band.

We look forward to ringing in 2019 with you!
