We Visit the Severin Bar every May on our aniversary and at other times.. The staff is personable and fun to talk with. I have found their bartenders to be top notch mixers..!! If you want them to mix a drink in a special way jus let them know what your thinking..

After a long day of meetings, etc., stopping in here for a craft beer or a drink isn't a bad idea.. Typical downtown hotel drink prices.

Stayed in the Omini hotel which this bar is a part of, good place to go if you are on your own and do not want to go out to a resturant. Beer selection was good and buffalo wings were great

I love Devour Downtown, but the menus can be hit or miss for us. The Severin Bar's menu was really good. We each had a local draft beer, shared the piggy bread (flat bread) appetizer, and then had the wild boar tacos and walleye sandwich. All were great, and for $35 for two of us, it was a great deal.... More

This bar is in the lobby of the Omni Hotel but also has street access. We were guest of the hotel but clearly local businesses drop in after work for drinks and food. The drink offerings are exceptional including the organic coctails. I recommend the organic margarita:).

The two nights I went the bar closed at midnight on the dot...granted, it wasn't Friday or Saturday, but both nights there were 20-30 people that had to be asked to leave, so I'm thinking they'd have continued to make money if they'd stayed open. That said - great bartenders, good pour - the drinks I had, at least -... More

We stayed in the hotel. The other bar in the lobby closed early so we went in here for one drink. It was a couple martini's that were very average and probably not worth the money paid. While we are staying here throughout the weekend, we will not go back for any drinks unless it is wine poured straight from... More

Bartender made a great cosmopolitan. It was empty on Tues night. Good selection of local spirits & beers. Menu covered bar food - plus salad & sandwiches- nothing special. Pool table and shuffle board for entertainment. Fun decor.
