A City of Character
Dining and Nightlife From fine dining to everyday fare, cuisines of every type and style are just steps away, either along Nicollet or accessed via the Skyway. Artisanal brewers of coffee and beer satisfy thirsts day and night. Home to Dylan and Prince, music is a given in the city, with a diversity of venues. The spirit of innovation offered by the city is exemplified by The Dakota Jazz Club chef-driven restaurant and music venue combination.
Shopping and Entertainment Browsing Nicollet and the North Loop is a shopper’s paradise whose rich diversity includes the flagship Target store, the cavernous Crystal Court in the IDS, MartinPatrick3 and D.NOLO. When shopping is not entertaining enough, the city offers six art film houses, seven professional sports teams, as well as numerous parks and recreations along the riverfront.
Art and Culture Minneapolis is for art lovers — it has everything from the internationally renowned Walker Art Center to the fifty manhole covers along Nicollet that have been converted into urban art. The Theater District presents productions from around the globe, while Orchestra Hall, home to the Minnesota Orchestra, hosts pop as well as classical artists.
