Palace Theatre, the live music and event venue in downtown Saint Paul, is partnering with the crew behind Wrecktangle Pizza to present a new concept, Wrestaurant at the Palace.
Concertgoers, residents, and the downtown Saint Paul workforce can look forward to a new neighborhood eatery this summer. Palace Theatre, which is co-operated by First Avenue and Jam Productions, selected notable GMA’s Ultimate Pizza™ innovators, Wrecktangle Pizza, to develop this all-new dining destination.
Wrestaurant at the Palace will offer classic Wrecktangle pizzas, sandwiches, and slices while introducing new dishes and a distinctive cocktail menu. A slice window will feature quick order and grab-and-go items, and the full-service dine-in restaurant and 40-seat bar will highlight Wrestaurant at the Palace’s full menu.
Before becoming a cornerstone of the national music scene and a Twin Cities cultural landmark, First Avenue was an art deco style Greyhound bus station built in 1937 called The Depot. In June 2010, the historic downtown Minneapolis nightclub opened The Depot Tavern, a new bar and restaurant next door to the 7th St Entry. Walls adorned with concert photography spanning the club’s 40-year history, and featuring live video feeds from both the Mainroom and the Entry on multiple widescreen televisions, The Depot Tavern is an exciting addition to the First Avenue family. Stop by for a bite and a drink before the show (or the game).
Please note the Depot's kitchen closes at:
10PM Sunday through Thursday (when open)
11PM Wednesday / Thursday (during Mainroom shows)
12AM Friday / Saturday
The Depot Tavern is following all health and safety best practices, including increased cleanings at tables and busy areas.
Masks are optional at this time, in accordance with MN statutes. Masks are available for purchase on site, and multiple sanitizer stations will be available throughout the restaurant.
Each table will have QR codes to access menus from your phone.
