Sidebar at Surdyk’s

For 80 years, Surdyk’s has been Northeast Minneapolis’ primary source for fine foods and liquor. Fourth-generation Surdyk siblings Taylor, Melissa, and Molly approached Shea to create the first on-premises restaurant, Sidebar at Surdyk’s, putting their own stamp on the family brand. Our team created a neighborhood haven that both nods to nostalgia while looking forward to many more decades of success. A copper-clad bar, tiled in bright blue, is at the heart of the space, and the scene-stealing custom wallcoverings depict vintage ads and notable stories from the Surdyk’s history. Curved booths give the space a vintage vibe, while a garage door opening to the patio allows for energy to transfer between the restaurant and the city streets.
