In the heart of vibrant Lowertown, Rayette Lofts is a newly-finished and modernly constructed historic building offering one and two bedroom lofts. The once-home of Aqua Net hairspray embraces its decades of character with concrete flooring, oversized floor plans, ridiculously high ceilings, heated parking and more windows than wall. These lofts overlook the Farmers Market and are only feet from the new Saint Paul Saints Ballpark, Mears Park, the Union Depot Green Line Light Rail, many shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. At Rayette Lofts, we take pride in our prime location, rich history and timeless style. 

Stunning amenities and creative community areas help you experience and craft your urban lifestyle. Entertain your guests on the Rooftop Deck while watching a game and taking in the panoramic views of Saint Paul. Relax in the Sinatra Lounge with a movie night, pool competition or social hour (it’s large enough to invite every friend you have). Use our 24-hour state-of-the-art Fitness Center because your workout shouldn’t include your commute to the gym. Exercise your creative mind as well; enjoy the local art in all communal areas and the Local Artist Lobbies on each floor.

You’ll find that Rayette Lofts gives you everything you need to feel at home. Embrace your history. Cheers to your future.

Rayette Lofts is a pet friendly community.

Saint Dinette St. Paul

France made them famous — the neighborhood place with better food than you’d get at home, but not unlike the food you’d get at home. The place where the street cleaners, truck drivers, starving artists, and carpenters sidle up to a bar, rub elbows, and restore their souls as the sun goes down on another long, dirty day. It’s always just down the block, maybe two from a market that keeps the food rich and fresh.

As we come together in Lowertown to celebrate art, food, sports, and commerce, Saint Dinette invokes the welcome and comfort of a “maison,” or house — a gathering place for this re-born River City.

We invite you to settle into our idea of North American hospitality and discover a three-nation, waterborne joie de vivre. Our mission will always be to honor the moment through your moments with us.

As your hosts, we are set to guide you through flavors found from the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, through the Great Lakes, down the Mississippi, and to the jungle coast south of the border. The French exploration of our abundant continent has led us on a discovery of deliciousness in Montreal, New Orleans, the Gulf Coast of Mexico, and everything in between.  We wish to share with you how Saint Dinette was born of our shared love for the art of life and the pursuit of flavor.

Spain has tavernas, Italy trattorias, and Germany its rathskellers…

St. Paul now has, Saint Dinette.
