Minneapolis Neighborhoods

Riverfront District

Take a scenic stroll across the Stone Arch Bridge and step from Minneapolis’ milling past at the Mill City Museum into its trendy present at the gleaming Guthrie Theatre.


This bright and beating heart of the city is interconnected by enclosed skyways and features many of its main attractions as well as some of its best restaurants, nightlife, and shopping, many of which straddle Nicollet Mall.

Warehouse District

Also called the North Loop, this former industrial area is now a hub for theatre, art galleries, shopping, and restaurants, as well as the Target Center sports and concert arena.


Once known as St. Anthony and the epicenter of the area’s former milling empire, the Northeast (or Nordeast to some locals) is now where old-fashioned charm meets arty revitalization, best showcased at Nye’s Polonaise Room.


The young creative set shines in Uptown, where great restaurants, quirky shopping options, and a bustling nightlife blend into a hip and energetic urban ‘hood.


Just east of Uptown and sometimes referred to as its edgier cousin, Lyn-Lake is home to eclectic city institutions like entertainment complex Bryant-Lake Bowl, cultural center Intermedia Arts, and the Jungle Theater.
