Travel on the north-western outskirts of downtown Minneapolis and you’ll stumble upon “North Loop.” This melting pot of buzzy shops and innovative restaurants has transformed warehouses from the late 19th and early 20th centuries to create a vibrant neighborhood that is continually growing.

It’s an area with bustling nightlife, where you’ll find a lively crowd after a concert or a game looking to extend the night just a little bit longer. The number of dynamic places to eat, shop, and spend your evening will make your head spin. Two major sporting venues have settled in and are very close to the North Loop. Target Field is where the Minnesota Twins can be found running the bases on beautiful hot summer days. There isn’t a bad seat in the house and the food vendors are from the most popular local restaurants in the area, making a visit to the ballpark a true local experience.

Target Center is where both the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx call home just steps outside of the North Loop. Watch some of the best athletes in basketball performing at their highest level in this recently renovated space. While you're in the area walk down towards the light rail station and take a couple of selfies near the Bob Dylan Mural created by artist Eduardo Kobra.

Local Tip: Both Target Field and Target Center are known to bring some big act concerts and shows as well. For national headliners, check out the Fillmore, the area's new 36,000 square foot venue that opened in 2020.

If you're looking for smaller-than-a-stadium entertainment, North Loop delivers. Need a laugh? The Acme Comedy Company is an intimate standup club that provides a stage for local and up-and-coming comedians in Minneapolis. Another option for discovering talent is The Lab Theater. Depending on the time of year, they host live theater, music, dance, cabaret, fashion, and burlesque.

You can even enjoy a microbrewery crawl in the neighborhood! Grab a flight at Modist Brewing, or sign up for a weekend tour with Fulton Brewing and Inbound Brew Co to get a close-up look at the beer-making process. You can also diversify your tasting portfolio with a stop at North Loop’s first urban winery, AxeBridge Wine Company. Stay connected to the neighborhood at the North Loop Neighborhood Association
