Dalton & Wade Whiskey Commons Offers a Wide Selection of Drinks and Down-Home Food

The name of Minneapolis’ new whiskey commons, Dalton & Wade, comes from characters in the classic Western movie “Road House.” 

“The premise for the whole restaurant was to create a place where these two very different characters would want to go if they got together to have a drink,” says Paul Abdo, a founding partner of Dalton & Wade. The building where the commons are housed is the only wood building built recently in Minneapolis and stands out in the warehouse district.
