Union Restaurant in Downtown Minneapolis is a pretty unique space. The entire, giant building is being transformed in to what promises to be one of the biggest and best New Year’s Eve parties of the year!

The space, which opens to a main floor restaurant/gastropub will have dinner and dj’s… The real fun, however, lies on the rooftop, with awesome views of downtown.  And I know what you’re thinking… “It’s winter in Minnesota!…” but don’t worry, the Union rooftop comes complete with 360 glass enclosure so you can feel cool without getting cold.

Last year’s party featured a fully “space” themed party, using the rooftop to make the whole party look like the Death Star (check out photos).  – I mean, just look how cool the rooftop was last year!

The real New Year’s Eve party, however, takes place underground at REV Ultralounge.  This space is perfect for a party of this magnitude; dance floor with VIP tables along the side.  The promoters promise to go all out this year as well, promising to make it one of your top picks for 2017’s best parties!
