I had heard and read good things about Marvel Bar, the subterranean cocktail lounge beneath The Bachelor Farmer. When my friend and I visited, we were left feeling disappointed and thrilled at the same time. Getting into the lounge from the street attempts to mimic a 'speakeasy' vibe, with entrance through the rear service door. A 'Bouncer' is there to... More

Despite being totally packed on a Thursday at 8pm, the staff were kind and quick. The drinks were perfect, and I enjoyed the burly eye candy. I gave one of the bartenders my number...he never called. :( I'd still go back.

I have to admit, I was a bit confused by the service situation at first. We waited at the bar for a while before someone told us we were able to be served from our seats. From there it was all smooth sailing. The drinks were delicious; perhaps they were a bit pricey by Minnesota standards, but not unreasonable, especially... More

Incredible cocktails in a very cool atmosphere. This place was so popular, they opened at 5 PM and by 4:45 there was 30-40 in line for it to open. You will love it!

The woman at the desk of my hotel was very adamant about this place. She wanted me to try the Oliveto. It was a good drink. The only thing is when it's busy the bartenders are slow as it is to be expected.

Service was prompt and friendly. We were lucky to get a seat at the bar as the bar was very busy. We ordered some cocktails and they were expertly prepared. It's a lot of fun watching the bartenders prepare the drinks as they are quite labour intensive. I really enjoyed the Oliveto, I believe that this bar pioneered the use... More

The bartenders know their way to making fabulous cocktails! It's fun to try something new each time because they all are amazing! Seat is limited so go early and the snacks are fun too!

Yeah it's good, friendly and hip and creative cocktails. Nice atmosphere. nice bartenders, level of service expected in fine craft cocktailing. Menu is slightly pretentious to assume that I know what all these peculiar, whimsical liquors are. But fine, I'll just order something I have no idea what it is and I hope to god it's not bourbon. And it... More

Another wonderful cocktail hour at Marvel. Hot muggy day out and it felt so good to slip into the quiet cool retreat of Marvel! The bartender is so friendly and helpful. The drinks were great and the quiet Jazz in the background was just what we needed.

I had been looking forward to this bar for months, what a disappointment. The only "neat" thing about this bar is that it is unmarked and hidden. The bartender spoke in a whisper, the specialty drinks were overpriced and there weren't many places to sit. Too bad, somehow this place gets hyped way more than what it deserves. You can... More
