North Loop / Warehouse District

North Loop / Warehouse District

The most unique assortment of shops, businesses, restaurants and nightlife

The North Loop neighborhood is bustling day or night and is Minneapolis’ oldest ‘new’ neighborhood. Unique lofts in landmark buildings, innovative cuisine and classic neighborhood pubs, specialty shops owned by local enterprising entrepreneurs, and countless cultural offerings can all be found in this historic community.

Chain restaurants are few in this neighborhood as it’s a hub of both quaint cafes and eclectic eateries. If you’re just looking for either a cup of coffee or an entree of foie gras – both are equally accessible here. Home to the avant-garde Interact Theater and the classic Minnesota Opera, the diverse cultural scene gives its residents a plethora of entertainment options – all within walking distance. The lively nightclubs located near these restaurants provide ‘one stop shopping’ for an evening of eating and dancing.

Local Character

The North Loop offers Minneapolis’ most unique assortment of shops as many businesses are owned and operated by neighborhood residents. A community in the real sense, these locally-owned businesses add character to the neighborhood that cannot be replicated in any other part of the city. May it be custom frames, unusual wine, or Scandinavian home accessories, these exchanges bring the community closer together and provides them with services not found in any other part of the city.

The new Twins Baseball stadium, Target Field, opened in 2010 in the North Loop Neighborhood. This landmark for the entire state of Minnesota adds to the easy-access of cultural events in this lively neighborhood.
