They offer bottomless bloody marys and mimosas with breakfast and lunch.


Put this foodie hot spot on your list! The trendy, urban eatery has both a café for a fabulous sit-down dinner, and a bar for hanging out with a couple of craft cocktails. Indulge in upscale American comfort food and wash it down with a cold beverage.


Incredibly fresh seafood and a bit of southern charm make 4Bells an award-winning Minneapolis restaurant. They overnight their seafood directly from the coasts and serve local fish from Minnesota rivers and lakes. The quality cannot be beat. Prefer to stay on land? Try their amazing fried chicken! For a quick bite, head to their walk-up window in the back alley for some incredible southern food and a few beers.


A trip to Minneapolis just wouldn’t be the same without experiencing our incredible craft beer scene. Luckily, Lakes and Legends is only a few blocks away so you can dive right in whenever the mood strikes. The beer is incredible, the space is beautiful, and they even offer games. It’s the perfect hangout spot to relax and have a couple brews before the block party!


Another great Minneapolis brewery, Sisyphus, offers several unique flavors. Try their Banana Boss, Peanut Butter Stout or Is That A Cucumber In Your Pils? They often have food trucks, or you can bring in your own food! Perhaps 4Bells fried chicken…?


A summer favorite, Butcher and the Boar is the perfect spot to sit outside, have a few drinks and indulge in some top-notch eats. Head out to their beer garden for one of the best patios downtown. Be sure to try one of their sausages and for a little extra fun, get their brat + beer + shot deal for only $12.
