Dine Inside a Dome for the Super Bowl

Welcome to the Bardome

There are ice bars and outdoor patios opening up all over the Twin Cities, but new Northeast restaurant Bardo has earned the designation of being the most Minneapolis dining option around. Enter the Bardome, available to rent for a family-style dinner.

As gorgeous as the new US Bank Stadium is, it’s hard not to pine, just a little bit, for the puffy days of yore when we had a dome. Now locals and those coming in for the Super Bowl LII can reserve a seat under the winter sky and enjoy a family-style dinner at chef Remy Pettus’ new restaurant on Hennepin Avenue, just over the bridge from downtown Minneapolis.

The domes are available by reservation. A Bardome, accommodates up to 6 people, the cost is $1000, with a $500 deposit. The prix-fixe menu options include a choice of salad, seafood, pasta, meat and sides. Beverages are available in batched cocktails or bottles of wine.

The dome seats up to six and the deposit is deducted from the overall $1,000 cost. Rental means the seats are yours for the whole night, from 5 pm to midnight.

After the big game, the domes will remain a winter wonderland dinner option, likely for a reduced price.

Make the most of the dark night
