At the ground level, Nolo’s Kitchen is an all-day restaurant that’s become a regular hang for the neighborhood with dishes created by chef Peter Hoff. Dishes like the chicken rigatoni and crispy chicken sandwich have a way of becoming edible obsessions. Downstairs is a fun kind of modern dive bar with decadent snacks, affordable drinks, and good times.

Worried about sitting in the sun all afternoon at the game? Hit up this dark, cool, dive bar for burgers, sandwiches, wings, or even their “North-Mex” items. Eat, drink, and totally lose track of time with an ear-to-ear smile on your face.

5. City Works - Minneapolis

600 Hennepin Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 361-2900
Visit Website

The only thing outnumbering the TV's at this sports bar are the tap handles of their 100 beers. Pair one of those beers with their duck Reuben, served with citrus/tarragon/apple sauerkraut, gruyere cheese, and Russian dressing on marble rye.

6. Kieran's Irish Pub

Copy Link
601 1st Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 339-4499
Visit Website

Bring the whole crew to this mammoth palace of Irish pride. Get an expertly-poured pint of Guinness (or any of their myriad beers), and order up some pot roast sliders and some chicken shots (crispy-fried nuggets of chicken, tossed in a tangy/sweet whiskey sauce) and cheers a Twins win with a mighty “Sláinte” to any and all fans.

7. 508 Bar + Restaurant

Copy Link
508 1st Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 339-0036
Visit Website

A menu that ranges from burgers to salads await just half a block from the main gates at Target Field. Don’t be discouraged if the pub looks busy from the door, just head downstairs to their cavernous basement for some cool air and cold beer and hearty fare.

8. The Loon Cafe

Copy Link
500 1st Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 332-8342
Visit Website

The Loon is a Minneapolis staple. In a culinary scene that’s ever-changing, this is the hallmark of the old bar regime in the Warehouse District. Cold beer and Grape Apes harken back to a previous era, but the real money is on a bowl of chili as a primer before a crisp springtime game. Turkey, chicken, veggie, beef, and pork chilies are all options.

9. Pizza Lucé

Copy Link
119 N 4th St.
Minneapolis, MN 55401
(612) 333-7359
Visit Website

If short on time, Pizza Lucé is your savior. Grab a slice (or two!) of cheese, meat, or veggie. Take some of their tuna caliente from the deli case; simple twist on tuna pasta salad spiced with a hint of fresh jalapeños. It’s perfect for walking and eating.

10. 112 Eatery

Copy Link
112 N 3rd St
Minneapolis, MN 55401
(612) 343-7696
Visit Website

Dip into James Beard Award winning chef Isaac Becker’s original restaurant for above board bar snacks like cauliflower fritters, or a jaw-dropping burger with brie on an English muffin. The swank room serves serious cocktails and a date-night worthy wine list.

11. Monte Carlo Restaurant

Copy Link
219 3rd Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55401
(612) 333-5900
Visit Website

An icon of Minneapolis pours serious martinis and has a fantastic patio that doubles the seating capacity in this 50’s decorated restaurant with old-school, attentive service. Immediately order the gigantic dry-rubbed, Beijing-style wings. Equal parts crispy and moist, they’re savory, sweet, and totally unforgettable.

12. Runyon's

Copy Link
107 Washington Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55401
(612) 332-7158

Forget about fusion sauces and dehydrated dry rubs, Runyons proudly serves original, saucy Buffalo wings. Lick every finger on both hands and let that bright orange sauce ring your mouth like a little kid eating ice cream, and wash it down with an ice cold beer. Innovate all you want on new gastropub menus, but an original classic is a classic for a reason.
