About The Interchange

Our story began when our family joined forces to run a small business in downtown Albert Lea.

Lisa Hanson her son Patrick and his wife Joy created a bistro with food, beverage, and live entertainment called The Interchange.

We are a family-owned and operated business dedicated to providing a relaxed, fun, and gourmet experience. 

We have provided a space for friends to meet, for local artists to display and sell their work, and for local performers to entertain our community. We hope to keep doing all of that and much more.

Now we’re fighting for to protect our family’s livelihood and to defend our freedoms
