Nyes recently opened again. It’s certainly not the old Nyes, but they have kept some of the fixtures and incorporated them in the new place. Great staff and solid drinks. The piano bar lives on. New restrooms are a bonus.

It's closing but the dueling piano bar will always be remembered, as will the unique cuisine. It was an interesting place.

If you're looking for a fun night in Minneapolis, this is your spot. You've never seen anything like it. Even if you're only a casual polka music fan, bring your dancing shoes.

We visited Nye's for a late night sing-a-long and it was a great time! Sad to hear it is closing for real this time, this truly is a Minneapolis gem for any crowd. Sure hope there is another option for a night on the town...More

Food was delicious as always! Unfortunately Nyes is closing for good in April so the place was packed. I hope everyone in Minneapolis/st Paul have experienced Nyes at least once. The end of an era!

Visit this place before they close. We got to the bar around 11pm, and the piano area was still crowded. We elected to visit the other side and listen to the polka band. The whole decor of the place is oddly elegant, as you can...More

What a hoot! I felt like we were back in a 1950's nightclub. There was a large main room with a piano and bar, a raised section with plastic, metallic booths and... best of all, a polka room. The drinks were awful, but that just...More

We have been wanting to come here for years and finally decided to visit before it is gone forever. What a place. Very old school with padded booths, old style dim lighting and lots of noise. Our server was fantastic, everything we ordered or asked...More
