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!

WE visited uptown recently and were impressed with some of the trendy stores. Davieannies was a great pizza place to visit.

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...

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 :)
