Our New Event Space: Dangerous Man Upstairs!

Thanks for thinking of Dangerous Man for your event! Our bustling little taproom is so excited to have an event space upstairs where you can bring your family, friends, and coworkers to come and enjoy all that our little corner of Northeast Minneapolis has to offer!

When’s the party?

Please make sure to have a few dates in mind before reaching out. Our calendar gets full and we will want enough time to plan a great party with you. View our calendar on Google.

Additionally, we do not have open hours. If you want to see the space, please email Mariam Jakubowski (mariam@dangerousmanbrewing.com) – they would be more than happy to schedule some time for you to see the space!

What kind of party/event are you having?

Whether it’s a business meeting, baby shower, birthday party, rehearsal dinner, corporate events, holiday parties, seminars, business meetings/happy hours, team building events, fundraiser events, or anything else, if you want a private room, we got you!

Our rental space is nestled on a private floor, free of through traffic, which enables our guests to enjoy their event without hassles or interruptions. There are tall ceilings, hardwood floors, lots of natural lighting including funky skylights, a personal bar, personal bathroom, and a kitchenette.

There is also a TV with hookups for all your AV needs. The space can serve up to 4 beers on tap and seat up to 54 people.

Excited? Need to know more? Well, read on for more details!

The Nitty Gritty:

Our private event space, located at 1302 2nd St. NE in Minneapolis, is a stunning 850sq ft room, including seating for up to 54 people, tables, chairs, linens, beer, non-alcoholic drinks, and a dedicated staff before, during, and after your event. If you want to bring in your own linens or decorations, that’s also great!

Space rental is available at the following times throughout the week in four hour intervals:

  • Tuesday-Thursday, 4pm-9pm
  • Friday, 3pm-11pm
  • Saturday, 12pm-11pm
  • Sunday + Monday, 12pm-7pm

All event hours are subject to change, so please make sure you reach out at least one month in advance! You will have access to the space an hour in advance to set-up – if you think you need more time, we can chat about that!


As you may know from coming by our taproom, Dangerous Man welcomes food from your house, our glorious food truck partners, or any restaurant you order from. The same goes for our event space!

Whether you want to have a potluck or hire a caterer, we can work with you to make it happen!

Dangerous Man reserves the right to approve any outside caterers, so please check with us before hiring. Please keep in mind that our fridge space is limited, though we are happy to work with you on the day of your event to get everything set up for your guests!


Dangerous Man Upstairs is currently only accessible by stairs. However, we are looking into what we can make happen in this space – we value all patrons and aim to make our space as accessible as possible. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please email our Private Events Manager at mariam@dangerousmanbrewing.com.

Inclusion Policy

Dangerous Man welcomes anyone from anywhere. We have always prided ourselves in working with and serving everyone in our community, and not just for a better craft beer experience, but for a better Twin Cities. We do not, however, tolerate any behavior, groups, or initiatives perceived as disrespectful or intolerant of others. This philosophy extends to our rental policy as well and we will not work with organizations deemed as divisive or intolerant.

Please feel free to reach out to our Private Events Manager to discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

“We can disagree and still love each other unless your disagreement is rooted in my oppression and denial of my humanity and right to exist.” – James Baldwin

Our all-inclusive rate includes the space, tables, chairs, NO beer minimum/cash bar, and you get to pick what beer is served at your event (pending availability)!

Dangerous Growler Package!

Does your group like samples? Do you like surprises? Then this might be a great package for you!

Our Dangerous Growler Package is an add-on to either rate and includes: 8 growlers, chosen by our lovable staff and served in gorgeous tasting glasses. For only $150 you can chip away at your beverage minimum and bring some variety into your party!

Dangerous Man Brewing operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. To lock in your reservation on our calendar, we require payment in full for the room rental fee or payment in full for the all-inclusive rate at the time of receiving your invoice and upon signing a rental contract. We will only issue a refund if an email cancellation is sent to mariam@dangerousmanbrewing.com 14 days in advance.

Non-Profit Rental Pricing

Dangerous Man is proud to partner with non-profit organizations throughout the Twin Cities community and beyond. We can offer discounted rates based on availability – please reach out to our dedicated events team to discuss your needs and how we can make things work!

Partnership/DM Host

Part of the excitement with our new space includes the opportunity to host events by, with, and for our community! We know we can host quite a few pretty cool events, but we can’t do this work alone. If you think your organization would be a good fit to partner with DM, please fill out this quick partnership survey and our Private Events Manager will follow up!
