About Us

The Dakota is a rare gem in the Twin Cities 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.

Floor Plan & Seating

The Dakota can accommodate 250 – 350 guests. The mezzanine overlooking the stage in the Club can accomodate 90 standing or 60 seated guests. We have 2 private dining rooms, each holding up to 30 seated guests, while the main dining room can be made private for up to 70 guests. Click here to see an enlarged PDF.


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.


We are on the land of the Dakota and Ojibwe people. Established in 1985, the Dakota Jazz Club & Restuarant 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.
