When The Pourhouse opened in 2012 it quickly garnered success as a great restaurant to watch televised sports events and the place to party on Friday on Saturday nights. However, its prohibition-influenced design and large space showed strong potential for events and celebrations of all kinds, and we began hosting private parties, corporate events and charity galas. As The Pourhouse flourished into a prosperous event venue, and we continued to receive event and wedding requests, we discovered the third floor space in the Lumber Exchange Building that was an ideal larger event and wedding venue. The Fountain Room was opened to fulfill that vision.
To cater to upscale, swanky socialites of Minneapolis, we opened The Exchange Nightclub and Alibi Lounge. This modern, sophisticated space attracted happy hour goers and night time clubbers, and provided us with additional space to host events like wedding receptions, cocktail hours and corporate parties.
We are now thrilled to launch our newly expanded and redesigned event venue, The Lumber Exchange Event Center. Our unique group of spaces and services take the stress out of event planning, allowing you to enjoy the experience. No matter the size, budget or occasion, we can turn your dream event into a reality.
