What's Open in Minneapolis on Thanksgiving

Avoid smoke detector alarms, a kitchen disaster, and your crazy extended family (well, maybe you can’t avoid this one) and let someone else take care of you for the evening. Play arcade games, go bowling, enjoy stunning views of Minneapolis and chow down on delicious food from one of our wonderful chefs.

Manny’s Steakhouse

Quality, hospitality, and a mean steak are what have made Manny’s Steakhouse a destination for meat lovers. If you’ve never been, be sure to experience their famous meat cart, which shows you all of the cuts available to order and is sure to make your mouth water.

The Living Room

At W Minneapolis – The Foshay, The Living Room is the place to be for artisan cocktails, getting cozy by the fire, getting competitive at the arcade, or busting out your dance moves. Looking for a non-traditional Thanksgiving evening? Do it at The Living Room.


Originally meant to me Wilbur Foshay’s private full-floor getaway, Prohibition on the 27th floor of the Foshay tower provides one of the absolute best views in Minneapolis. 360 degrees of windows, a 1920s speakeasy vibe, and killer cocktails will turn your typical Thanksgiving celebration into a holiday to remember.


Enjoy breakfast from 7 – 11am or a Firelake Thanksgiving dinner from noon-8pm. More to come on the special menu items that will be available.
