anahata collaborative

The Venue


Your own private haven

We are a home away from home: A space which feels bright & airy, and fosters imagination, inspiration and creativity. Anahata Collaborative Venue is an industrial space in an old lumber building carefully designed to feel like a zen industrial loft space. This lumber building was originally built to be located ON a railway line to facilitate transportation of the lumber. Since then, the building has been remodeled and the railway has become THE paved cycling and walking path through Minneapolis and beyond now called the Midtown Greenway. We are fortunate enough to have our huge glass garage door open right on to our garden space and the Midtown Greenway giving us beautiful nature views, amazing south facing natural light, and easy accessibility by bike and pedestrian paths as well!

We are located in the heart of Uptown, Minneapolis which is a prime location in the LynLake area of Uptown. Within a block or two you can explore popular local businesses such as French Meadow Bakery, World Street Kitchen, Jungle Theatre, Common Roots Cafe, Milkjam Creamery, Moto-i, The Lynhall, Art Materials, Mpls Yoga, One Yoga, at our door step.

Even though our space is designed more like a cozy living space, it was also designed to be rearranged to suit your needs to a make your time here the best it can possibly be. Whatever you can dream up, we can make it happen: pop-up markets, photo/filming shoots, workshops, retreats, music events, weddings and more. All rentals are private rentals, meaning there will never be another client booked at the same time.

Anahata Collaborative is an accessible venue which accommodates up to 75 guests..

We are putting our stamp of approval on our Preferred Vendors and highly recommend them for your gatherings.
