If you are in the mood for a little retro with a dash of glamour, you’ll want to check out B.A.N.K. in downtown Minneapolis. Filled with historical significance, BANK resides in the early 20th century Farmers and Mechanics Bank building that is now part of the Westin Hotel. Swoon-worthy spiral staircases, the original vault turned wine vault, upscale character shining through millwork, and one impressive view from the balcony, BANK is an experience all its own. Add in remarkably comfortable seating with buttery soft couches and lavish pillows, it’s pretty easy to stay awhile. If you are looking for a place to people watch, look no further because the vast lobby is the walk way for hotel guests. When it comes to food, I am a fan of the Burrata Mozzarella and the Roasted Tomato Soup. Did you know that it comes with little grilled cheese accoutrement? Well you do now. People also rave over the New York Strip and the Calamari.  Little known fact? While you can order your signature cocktail from the Liquid Assets menu, you can also shake your own Martini or create your own cocktail at the communal table.
