Like all the Minneapolis restaurants owned by Kim Bartmann, Patís Tap operates with an unpretentious adherence to current trends. They have very good cocktails, but you will get no where asking the bartender about his preferred shaking method to make the perfect gin fizz; they have a very respectable tap list and an enormous canned beer selection, but the staff is not really oriented toward craft beer enthusiasm. The food is expensive and perfectly decent, but with dozens and dozens of great, cheap options further north on eat street, thereís no cause to eat here. Given its location, Patís is surely the best craft beer option in this edge- of- uptown neighborhood, but it isnít worth seeking out for that purpose.

Went here with a group of 6 on a Saturday night. Crowded. This new place is awesome. Great tap list. All beers on the "bottle" list are cans only. Food seems like itís trying to be fancier - but just is normal pub fare (I had Bangers and Mash). Fun to throw a few games of skeeball for a quarter. Small single stall bathrooms. They had Hopslam, Lugene, and Pentagram on tap among others when I was there. RACECAR! Iíll come back for the summer patio.
