Dark Horse Bar and Eatery first opened at 250 E 7th Street in St. Paul's Lowertown neighborhood this fall. The airy space makes use of the historic walls surrounding the room. The full bar is stocked with glittering bottles flanked by an impressive library-style ladder for reaching them all. Televisions are subtly placed for those that want to catch the game. Between the cocktails and the craft beers on tap, it's understandable that City Pages anointed Dark Horse the Best New Bar in St. Paul.
Now that the weather has turned warmer, the construction on the patio space, along with the outside bar has finally completed. It just opened for business this week and the additional seats will be welcome on sunny days and long, warm nights.
