Libertine was born from the clients’ desire to provide Minneapolis’ bustling Uptown neighborhood with a place to call their own.  The location of many ‘high-concept’ endeavors over recent years – the goal was to provide Uptown with an inspired, approachable menu – in a setting that would reflect contemporary tastes and real sensibilities.

Existing customer areas were rezoned to improve circulation and provide more intimacy.  Layering an eclectic maker-centric texturing of materials and artifacts over a crisp modern framework provided a point-of-view that is real, relevant, and refreshing in a neighborhood full of “me too” concepts.

A unique feature of the restaurant remodel is its “black-box”.  It expands the restaurant on busy nights, supports private parties, and enables Chef Tim McKee to explore new concepts…a pop-up restaurant within a restaurant that supports the ever-changing demands and desires of the neighborhood.
