Tattersall’s cocktail room is back. It’s been a long 16 months since we were last in that northeast Minneapolis distillery. On Thursday, June 3, locals can get back to enjoying some of the most talented bartenders in town shaking a drink with their world-class gin, or a Manhattan with their terrific bourbons. Tattersall will only be open three days a week: 4-10 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and 2-10 p.m. on Saturdays.
- Reservations: You’ll be able to book an online reservation system via Resy
- New menu: How does a Blackberry Crush, Gin Fizz (no egg whites! There’s a vegan foam syrup!), Midnight Manhattan, Palindrome, or Shoebill sound? 22 and Spruce is back (the gin and tonic). Otherwise, “almost every drink is a reinvention. We adjusted the recipes. Even the Gimlet is reinvented with a key lime cordial,” Oskey tells me.
- Online ordering & payment: We all know how to do the QR-code thing now. On your phone you’ll be able to start a tab, order, and close out when you’re ready to get out of there.
- Hosted seating: Instead of just grabbing a seat, you’ll check in with a host who will seat you. You can make a reservation indoors. Patio tables on the newly expanded outdoor space will be first come, first served.
- Nashville Coop: The hottest of hot chicken in town, Tattersall is announcing a food truck residency by Nashville Coop. “It’ll last several months at least, I’d love to have them here as long as we can,” says Oskey.
- Curbside cocktail kits: The wildly popular bottled cocktail mixes and other Tattersall merch will be available when the cocktail room is open. They’ll have a take out window to make it easy.
Why fewer hours? “It’s baby steps. We’re dipping our toes in to make sure we do it right,” said Oskey.
