Minneapolis — Eleven Artisans, a brew pub and entertainment venue, has signed a 3,500-square-foot lease at the historic Handicraft Guild Building and Assembly Hall adjacent to the new City Club Apartments. The name Eleven Artisans comes from a community of 11 female artists who pioneered a creative movement in downtown Minneapolis in the early 1900s. They created their art in the Handicraft Guild Building and Assembly Hall, which dates back to 1907. The brew pub, designed by Minneapolis firm Shea Design, will offer a range of craft beers, rotating handles, wine and cocktails. The restaurant will have more than 60 indoor seats, 60 outdoor seats and capacity for another 100 guests in the Assembly Hall. The outdoor patio will feature a bar, grill, games and live music. Eleven Artisans is expected to open this fall. City Club Apartments is the landlord.
