Everything at LARS is genuine and unique - like our daily bar ritual, where the bartender sounds a gjallarhorn to mark the making of the day's seasonal punch. Created using local spirits and ingredients, the punch is designed to highlight the distinct personality of Bloomington and the Twin Cities, and differs from day to day. The bar ritual only lasts for an hour, so don't miss it.

Everything about our hotel is inspired by Minnesota whimsy - from the quirky yet inviting lobby to the delightfully rustic accents in our contemporary guest rooms. LARS is no exception; our goal is for you to feel at home, surrounded by the hospitality for which our part of the world is famous.

LARS is more than simply a restaurant. It's a place to meet, gather and socialize. Linger at the bar and chat with local artisans, or commune around the fire pit and unwind after a day spent exploring downtown Bloomington.
