Award-winning Nicollet Island Pavilion is a premier venue in Minneapolis, rich with charm and history. The exposed brick walls and tall industrial ceilings provide an open atmosphere with tons of character. Nestled on the Mississippi Riverbank, the Nicollet Island Pavilion has the best views in town of the Minneapolis bridges and skyline.

Built in 1893 as William Brothers Boiler Works, Nicollet Island Pavilion was acquired by the Minneapolis Park Board in 1976 and eventually restored to the beautiful event space you see today.

All events are professionally managed by Mintahoe Catering & Events ensuring delicious catering and superb service.

First let me compliment you and your staff! You are certainly very experienced and professional! Obviously, you folks have a lot of experience and know what you’re doing. The food was excellent and the service was spot on!
