The Bachelor Farmer + Cocktail Recipe

Design*Sponge

A couple of years ago, my birthday fell on the day that we happened to be in Minneapolis for the Design*Sponge at Home book tour. It was my first time in Minneapolis and I wasnt quite sure what to expect. We were only in town for a day or so, but I fell hard for the city.  For dinner, Grace took me to the The Bachelor Farmer. We fell hard for the decor and the food, which were both fresh and vibrant. And since that evening, when anyone mentions Minneapolis, I always suggest that they check out the Bachelor Farmer. The restaurant is housed in a historic brick-and-timber warehouse in Minneapolis North Loop. Brothers Eric and Andrew Dayton purchased the property in 2008 and began a complete renovation that aimed to modernize while preserving as much of the buildings original character. In 2011, after working with architect James Dayton and interior designer Janet Gridley, the brothers opened the Bachelor Farmer on the buildings first and second floors. The main restaurant and small adjacent bar is on the first floor with private event spaces on the second floor. The restaurant grows its own produce on a small rooftop farm. If you dont have plans to visit, Minneapolis anytime soon, you can have a little bit of  The Bachelor Farmer at home with their cocktail recipe after the jump. (A big thank you to Eric Dayton for allowing us this little peek into the restaurant! And extra thanks to Pip Hanson, bartender of Marvel Bar and The Bachelor Farmer, for sharing the cocktail recipe with us!)  -Amy Image above: Our logo was designed by a good friend of mine, Deirdre Zahl. Image above: We call this our Afghan Room because of all the Afghan quilts, which we collected by scouring Etsy and Ebay during the renovation of the building. Theyre sourced from sellers all over the world. The Afghan Room is the smaller of our two 2nd-floor private dining rooms. Image above: This is the Living Room, which we use for private receptions. The deer head is by the French design team Frédérique Morrel. All the paintings are by early-20th-century Scandinavian artists.
