“Great craft cocktails and Recently voted best wine list in the St. Cloud Area! In 2005, The Veranda Lounge opened as the definitive location for St. Cloud’s wine scene, not only for 200+ bottle selection but also as a place to learn and ask questions about the wine. The same attention to detail and thirst for knowledge has led to The Veranda now being home to the MOST delicious and inventive cocktails with one of the largest whisky collections in St. Cloud.
