Lounges & Bars

It is no secret that Duluth has become known for its craft beer scene (thank you Lake Superior!), but we also have some awesome lounges and bars – and a unique distillery to check out.

As you would expect, we have a couple of favorites that include Vikre Distillery which has incredible hand-crafted cocktails from their uniquely made spirits of Gin, Vodka, Aquavit, Whiskey and so much more! The Spirit Room, located just over the bridge in Superior WI, is absolutely worth the trip. Not only do they offer a unique cocktail menu, their Tapas (small plates) is worth the drive!
