Smack Shack North Loop

ABOUT The Smack Shack food concept started its cult-like following as both a mobile food truck and stand-in foodservice for a local Northeast Minneapolis bar. It only seemed natural that they capitalize on their award-winning lobster-based menu and expand into a large scale, casual New England-style seafood restaurant in the historic warehouse district of Minneapolis. Creating a neighborhood vibe, where everyone feels welcome to come as they are to enjoy great food and drink, was essential for the Smack Shack concept.

Parlour Bar

ABOUT One of the best kept secrets in Minneapolis is the lower level of Borough Restaurant, a place called Parlour, a “speakeasy” type bar with a casual vibe and amazing signature cocktails. Entered from the street or from the restaurant above, ESG designed Parlour with polished concrete floors and existing concrete exterior walls that are balanced with rich upholsteries and leathers with old-school details such as tufted upholstery and nail head trim. A large wall graphic highlighting architectural details of the North Loop..
