The Bachelor Farmer is housed in a historic brick-and-timber warehouse located in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis. Built in 1881 and expanded in 1902, the building was home to a number of small businesses over the years, including McMillan Fur and Wool, Northwestern Grease Wool Co. and Marvel Rack. Eric Dayton purchased the property in 2008 and with his brother, Andrew, began a complete renovation. Their intention was to preserve as much of the original character as possible.
In 2011, The Bachelor Farmer opened on the building’s first and second floors. The restaurant consists of a dining room and adjacent bar on the first floor, and a series of four rooms for private dining and events upstairs. Our sister business, Marvel Bar, is located in the building’s basement.
