Lora is ideally situated for exploring Minnesota’s rich landscapes and the heritage of the Great North.
Carved from the bluffs on the south end of town, Lora feels both familiar through its gracious Midwestern hospitality and also enchanting as contemporary art and original elements of the former brewery nod to the building’s unexpected history and the fable and folklore of the region.
Johnny Michaels, widely considered to be the local godfather of modern cocktail making, will head up The Long Goodbye's cocktail program. Michaels’ resume includes his cocktail program at La Belle Vie in Minneapolis, which was named a James Beard Award National semi-finalist. Stop in to try The Lucky Millionaire cocktail, which is garnished with a scratch-off ticket!

Set on the banks of the St. Croix River, Lora is ideally situated for exploring Minnesota’s rich landscapes and the heritage of the Great North. Located on Main Street in Stillwater, the place celebrated as the birthplace of Minnesota, Lora is the latest reimagining of a building originally built in 1868 as the Joseph Wolf Brewery. Carved from the bluffs on the south end of town, Lora feels both familiar through its gracious Midwestern hospitality and also enchanting as contemporary art and original elements of the former brewery nod to the building’s unexpected history and the fable and folklore of the region.
Designed to celebrate the site’s history and spark the imagination, Lora’s approachable yet upscale aesthetic, modern vibe and sleek lines complement the natural limestone blocks, original bricks and exposed wooden beams of the former brewery. Jewel-toned pops of red against dark fields – from the occasional guestroom door to the bathroom vanities – call to mind the eye of the loon, Minnesota’s state bird. Playful touches – like brass hooks that take the form of rabbit ears and antlers – and a colorful collection of art inspired by the fable and folklore of the indigenous and immigrant people of the region add a sense of discovery and wonder.
