An upscale bar and lounge known as The Social was supposed to open Friday night (10/4) in the new Hilton in downtown Rochester but that has been delayed. A press release was just sent out that explains: "To ensure the best possible guest experience, the grand opening of The Social is now scheduled for October 11, 2019. Further details will be announced early next week. We look forward to introducing the beautiful bar/lounge to the Rochester community with a welcoming atmosphere filled with delicious bites and craft cocktails! "

Steve Hark, Founder and CEO of Entourage Events Group, says The Social will provide a truly unique experience, "The Social will tie in an elegant and posh experience with an entertainment element. The energy and vibe on the weekends will be a unique addition to the downtown Rochester scene.”

The lounge area will feature a full-service bar specializing in craft cocktails and a limited menu from Pittsburgh Blue Steakhouse. During the weekends, a live DJ or band will be common at the chic venue which will offer bottle service and enforce a “dress to impress” dress code.

Entourage Events Group is based out of Minneapolis. Their Twin Cities properties include Mansion at Uptown and Minneapolis Event Centers. They also recently opened H3 Rooftop in downtown Rochester.
