the Cafe Bar at the Campus Club

Closed for maintenance: June 29th to July 3rd

Come relax and enjoy a drink at the only bar on campus. The Café Bar hosts a variety of seasonal and local beers, wines, and spirits plus a menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and entrées.


We support domestic micro-breweries; Surly Furious is always on tap. Other local breweries may include Brau Brothers, Lift Bridge, Lucid, Fulton, Harriet, Bent Brewstillery, and Summit.

The Café Bar offers a food and wine menu for a late lunch or dinner. Our menu features fresh and locally grown produce, grass-fed meat, and organic-fed poultry whenever available. The wine selections rotate seasonally; Executive Chef Beth Jones and the Bar Manager carefully select wines to complement the flavors from the menu.

Dinner reservations are not necessary, but are accepted for groups of 8 or fewer. To make a table reservation please call the bar at 612-624-9136. The Campus Club kitchen closes 30 minutes prior to bar closing time.
