About Us

Rustic, historic, picturesque. The event space at Pique Travel, located in historic Excelsior, pays homage to its name with thoughtfully curated aesthetics that evoke a need for exploration. Constructed in the 1940s and originally home to the Lyman Lumber Warehouse, this 3,000 square foot event space just outside Minneapolis enjoyed a complete restoration in 2013. The stunning amenities include reclaimed materials, farm-style dinner tables, a built-in tiered concrete bar and full-length deck that evokes the feeling of a historic train depot. Expansive western facing windows provide a light and airy charm, while the vaulted wooden barrel ceiling and stone fireplace add the warmth and comfort of a Minnesota lodge.
Chalked with character, guests will enjoy a nod to history with the rustic floors featuring yellow pallet marks that hail from the building’s lumber days, as well as hand-poured concrete trough sinks and reclaimed sliding stable doors. Casual, yet sophisticated, this open-concept event space plays well with intimate groups (130 sit-down dinner, 200+ for stand-up cocktail receptions).

Please note that as we navigate Covid event restrictions, we are keeping our events to 75 people, and scaling as deemed healthy and safe. We are following all protocols that are recommended (use of masks, deep/regular cleanings, guidance on food serving safety and more).
