I live for a year in Minneapolis, unfortunately not in Uptown, but I think that half of my time I spent it there. It is just the best place to hang around, you have everything there: restaurants, coffee shops, fast food, clothes store, supermarkets... you find really nice and also unique people. One of my main reasons to want to... More

I'm in Minneapolis several times a year and I always go to the Uptown area. It has shops, great restaurants and little cafes. Lund's isn't just a grocery store -- they have a little bit of everything. There are some cool home decor stores and one of the used bookstores in town. In the warmer months it's a quick walk...

Slowly but surely the uptown of 20 years ago changes to a commercial area just living off its history. Places as the Uptown bar and grill were sold for big commercial money no one can resist. The little shops and dive in locations are almost all gone other that a few. Places like Auriga were hip but are inconsistent in... More

We spent a few hours in Uptown enjoying the shopping and then had dinner. Uptown has some great new stores and we enjoyed spending some time walking through them. Goorin's Hat Shop is located here and it is the only Goorin's in Minnesota so is definitely a fun place to check out. The restaurant choices are amazing and the vibe... More

Just FYI - this photo is taken on the Nicollet Mall, which is downtown, not Uptown. I recommend both locations - just thought someone looking for this fountain would be very frustrated if looking in Uptown :)

I love the Uptown area. It's easy to park and walk to many places. It's always busy. There are some new nice apartment buildings going up so improved availability for renters. I would live here if I was a tad younger. It does seem like a mostly younger crowd when I have gone to some of the restaurants. I can't... More

Recently moved to Uptown from the East Coast. Partner and I picked area because it feels safe and the most complete in terms of a "real urban neighborhood" with everything nearby. And it is still getting denser with more luxury apartment buildings being built. Definitely the place to live in or to be in if in Minneapolis.

The Uptown areas is a popular hang-out spot in Minneapolis. It's almost always over-crowded and driving and finding parking around there is a nightmare. Sadly, over the last few years it's become a playground for Yuppies and suburbanites. It's a pity that such a part of the town has become nothing else but a jock ground zero of the Twin... More

You can find just about anything in this area, from high-end boutiques to quirky little bead shops. There are many places to eat in the area, but Famous Dave's in Calhoun Square is amazing - nothing like their take-out restaurants. They have live music most nights. Also check out Chino Latino or Stella's Fish Cafe for dinner.

Uptown is a an all around fun area, with a diverse mix of people, restaurants, nightlife and shops. This is where you find a lot of Minnesota's chicest people. From classy, artsy Chino Latino to Stella's rooftop to the chain of lakes and Chain Mai Thai, you will find yourself with lots to do. Parking is tough, so plan ahead... More
