Simply put, a pub for the people. Republic is a locally owned, independent craft beer bar and restaurant in two locations: Historic Seven Corners and Uptown’s Calhoun Square.


Republic was named one of the Top 100 Beer Bars in America in 2013 and 2014 by Draft Magazine. Their criteria for selecting this list is "Having well-cared for, thoughtfully selected beer with an eye toward variety, trends and tradition, in the kind of place you’d want to stay awhile, delivered by someone who knows their stuff.” That about sums up the way we feel about beer.


No televisions, no distractions. A meeting place to enjoy good conversation over good food and drink.


Republic. A pub for the people.

Republic has an award-winning happy hour at both locations. From 4:00pm to 6:00pm and 10:00pm to midnight, we offer a selection of food, craft beer, wine and cocktails at a friendly discounted price. Please join us!  [Happy Hour Menu]





Here beer comes first. Our tap lists offer a constant rotation of the best craft beers from Minnesota, the region, and the world. Wine? We offer generous pours from a simple and refined list. With an imaginative list of house cocktails and an impressive offering of choice whiskeys, there is something here for everyone.


Driven by head chef Keven Kvalsten, our menu engages fresh, local ingredients in creative presentations. From animal to vegetable and everything in between, here you will find food which is, simply put, “Pub food done better” – Star Tribune.
