“Breathtaking Venue”
Review of IDS Building

IDS Building
Reviewed 25 April 2016

We were chaperones for a Prom held on the 50th floor of the IDS Building. There were windows everywhere almost floor to ceiling with breathtaking views looking out over all parts of the cities. In addition to this we were provided a dessert bar and water and lemonade. The desserts were delectable and the staff was courteous and helpful and kept everything stocked all evening long. I would definitely recommend this venue for the food, the staff and the amazing views.

Built in the early 1970's, this building anchored the entire skyline of downtown Minneapolis for a couple of decades. Tall, dark, and monolithic, the style of this building is reminiscent of the same building designed by the same firm that highlights the Dallas skyline. The Crystal Court, with shops and a few restaurants, is the thing that saves this building from being just another building. the Court is a gathering place for pedestrians and office workers throughout the day. A must see free attraction in Minneapolis.

The IDS Building is very unique from an architecture standpoint. The inside of the building has an interesting water feature and the all window interior is unique and very pretty. Inside you will find a park like setting with benches and trees to relax on. There is also a few fast food restaurants, a couple upscale restaurants, a gift shop, jewelry store, and clothing store.

I had the opportunity to visit IDS Building reaching the last floor. From there I could see how the other skyscrapers in Downtown were so smaller, from that height I could admire the entire area around Minneapolis. It was fun and very suggestive!

IDS center is basically just a massive office tower. It offers great views of the Twin Cities area, but the top floors are not open to the public unless you work upstairs, or attend an event/party on the top floor. The main lobby serves a an indoor public square where several skyways intersect. There are some generic chain stores, banks and restaurants that cater primarily to the business people who work nearby. If it's a cold day, the place is very busy, since people come in there to stay work. Otherwise it's quite unremarkable.
