On June 21, we gathered to celebrate the grand opening of a new luxury apartment community in Northeast Minneapolis. NordHaus is a collection of custom, art-inspired apartments with designer finishes. It features a hygge theme and includes amenities like a state-of-the-art fitness center, a rooftop theater, a full resort-quality outdoor pool deck, work-from-home suites and more.

Nordhaus is the first of its kind in the neighborhood, so a grand celebration was in order. The event was centered around the theme of hygge and the Northeast community.

Delicious cuisine and craft bartending was executed by Red Stag Supperclub of the Bartmann Group. Dessert was a gourmet donut bar from Glam Doll Donuts. The Big Strong Men serenaded the 150-some guests as they sipped on signature cocktails, Indeed brews and bubbly Rosé. And Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey even stopped by!

To take the vibes of hygge home, guests walked away from the festive fete with a sampling of Norseman Distillery aquavit, Mademoiselle Miel gold-leaf honey bonbons and a campfire mug.
