Cool neighborhood experience with restaurants, shops, and boutiques. There's a great independent bookstore, Magers and Quinn. The Uptown Theater is also worth checking out.

I love the restaurants in Uptown, the renovated area of South Minneapolis, that attracts those looking for new and exciting things to do. Chiang Mai is a favorite. The lights along the boulevard at Christmas are very pretty.

Look forward to the first Friday - Sunday in August for this event. Uptown is a hip area and a fun place to people watch. Hundreds of artists from around the country come to display and sell their work. It is very popular and crowded. Lots of upscale higher priced art and tons of food trucks. It's an event I... More

Great place to have dinner almost any night of the year. Or lunch for that matter. Best place for eats outside of the Warehouse District. Great people watching in Summer.

Uptown contains a part of Minneapolis with Shopping Dining etc, mingled amongst Charming Historic Buildings. It is Pretty Much EAST of the Lakes CALHOUN, Harriet etc. part of Minneapolis. Do Visit It!

I've always loved Uptown. The atmosphere is fun, upscale, and hip (wow, do people say that anymore?). So many little shops- expensive shops, but very cool nonetheless. Their art fair is absolutely the best; when I lived in Minnesota, I always tried to make it to the fair and was very disappointed if I had conflicting plans. Lake Calhoun, Comedy... More

Uptown is a microcosm of hip with cool shops for clothes, furniture and accessories, kitchen utensils, spices, you name it, it's in Uptown. Add to that a vibrant restaurant and bar scene with most cuisines represented. The frosting on the cake is two theatres specializing in independent films. Uptown also hosts the Uptown Art Fair each summer--the oldest and most... More

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...
