    My bachelorette group was really looking forward to using the outdoor tent, we confirmed the reservation a total of 3 times including once the day of. When we arrived we were told the outdoor tents were not open, this was really a disappointment. However, the drinks were phenomenal, the service was fantastic, and we still had a lovely evening.

    The website for Loon Liquors did not indicate holiday hours and Open Table was offering reservations for 11/25. BUT when we arrived for our reservations.... the door was locked. Another patron arrived while we were there and tried to get in. We visited Northfield from Minneapolis and Loon Liquors was one of the main experiences we were looking forward to.

    Yikes!! We are soo incredibly sorry Amelia! We thought we turned off reservations for that day, but obviously we did not see it through. Please send us an email, and we can get you a free bottle on the house during your next visit. Again, our deepest apologies!! (thankyou at loonliquors dotcom) - Mark

    I love the ginger ale here that they use in the drinks. Been going there for several years. There’s been a big change is the menu since I’ve lost been. Not a big fan of the change but the drinks were quite good.

    Confusing place to enter (not downtown but in the middle of industrial park), but it was a surprisingly an appropriately cozy set up. Cocktails are priced right for the ingredients involved (NA soda avbl too). Wasn’t sure if food would be avbl but we ordered a lovely locally-sourced cheese and cracker plate (also priced right, very tasty) which lasted the whole hour. Outdoor tent had a nice set up with charming decor, though the wood smell and occasional smoke puff was a minor turn off, plus my toes got really cold (though blankets were provided), and we could overhear the next tent. We all agreed we definitely would recommend this for an hour for 2-4 people. Very cute and cozy, nice ambiance in the tent and in the distillery. Excellent, friendly staff, too! Good time!

    Lovely ambiance! We also took advantage of their wood stove heated tent which was fun! Limited drink menu in the tents. Was very cold so they cheerfully found us a table inside. Cozy inside with helpful, friendly staff.

    Loon Liquors is not a restaurant, although they do have a few snacks available. Their drinks are the reason to go, and they are topnotch! They have interesting, carefully crafted cocktails in an outdoor environment that is cozy and relaxing. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive. If you prefer to stay home, just order a cocktail kit through curbside pick up and make them in your own kitchen. Highly recommended!
