Nye’s Polonaise Room
112 E Hennepin Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55414
For our monthly supper club visit for March, we headed to Nye’s before they closed in April. The ambience transports it’s guest to a previous time where you enjoy the art of socializing and dining. I had wonderful socializing for the evening but the food and building are beginning to show it’s final destination. Furniture was torn, food was ok, and the famous piano player was missing from her spot-“Sweet Lou” Snider.
In my opinion the most memorable part of the trip, however, was the waitress. She appeared to have been there for awhile and appeared to be a part of the ambience. She was personable and enjoyed talking with her customers. However, when we got to the time to pay the bills, we had several versions of our bills presented to us before everything had all been taken care of. She also admitted as we were finishing up that she has been working hard to get fired but so far it hasn’t been successful. . . yet.
So, if I were to summarize my experience- I think I missed my opportunity to fully experience Nye’s. I will have to enjoy hearing old stories from when Nye’s was in it’s prime.
