Seven Steak House

Seven Steakhouse Sushi Ultralounge Skybar is the ultimate event destination located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis featuring award winning steak and sushi menus. Located next to Pantages Theatre, this dramatic, three-level destination lights up the corner of 7th and Hennepin with two very distinct dining and entertainment experiences. Every level is meticulously designed to provide areas perfect for larger social events or intimate rendezvous.

Award-winning producers David and Alexus Koch created the ultimate mix of fine dining and entertainment to bring the glamour and hospitality of the past back to Hennepin Avenue. “We have a passion for service, a commitment to quality and an authentic excitement about our vision” said David Koch.

Seven isn’t so much a restaurant as it is an experience.



At Cambria, we pride ourselves on being the only family-owned, American-made producer of natural quartz surfaces. It’s a rare combination in today’s increasingly globalized marketplace. For our customers, it results in quality that can be felt from start to finish, in products and our customers' experience.
