The Veranda Lounge is located in the beautifully restored Pioneer Place on Fifth building. The Veranda's historic, yet stylish feel makes it the perfect setting for enjoying personal time, conversation with friends and colleagues, a night on the town with the gang, or sharing time with that special someone. We are pleased to offer you our best service, great atmosphere and quality products. From live music to wine tastings, we are St. Cloud's entertainment destination

The Veranda officially opened its doors on September 12, 2005 by bringing to St. Cloud their first full-fledged wine bar - complete with a wine list of over 220 varieties.  Today, The Veranda has a complete list of Spirits and Beers as well, and is home to Central Minnesota's finest Mojito, our signature drink made with fresh fruit!

In December 2008, The Veranda introduced a full line of appetizers and desserts including the best baguettes in town.  Recently, new homemade pizzas have been added to the menu which have received rave reviews.  So please stop down and enjoy our delicious food offerings along with the best wine and spirits in Central Minnesota.








The Veranda offers great outdoor seating on our two "verandas" overlooking Fifth Avenue.  This is the perfect spot for that special date night, or meeting friends for Happy Hour.  And speaking of Happy Hours, The Veranda offers half-priced bottles of wine every weekday from 4pm-6pm.


The Veranda has quickly become known for its great free live music concerts that occur at least three nights each week.

MONDAY NIGHT JAZZ: Every Monday from 8pm - 10:30 you can hear the best jazz in Central Minnesota as led by Jeff Engholm and Muggsy Lauer.  Each week, many musicians join the cast to play and sing the jazz classics that are truly American.  Stop down every Monday for the best in jazz!

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT ACOUSTICS: Each and every Friday and Saturday night
