Night Life Near W Minneapolis

Hi All,

A group of us (30s-40s) will be staying at the W Minneapolis on a Wednesday night in Feb. before a concert. Are there any nearby places with good happy hours? I’ve heard that Prohibition is cool, so we’ll have to stop there…the guys may want to visit a more “manlier” bar/restaurant while the ladies are at the concert. Any suggestions within walking distance to the W? Is the skyway always open or does it close at night???

The Living Room in the W has a pretty good jhappy hour. Might be a better place for the women. Men could walk down to The Local. Manlier place and very nice.

In between spot might be Barrio. Good happy hour there. Most of Nicollet Mall will have happy hours going on a Wednesday with all the professionals working nearby. The places can get PACKED tho.

Google thriftyhipster for more on happy hours.

You shouldn't have a problem on a Wednesday night. There are plenty of places with good happy hours. Prohibition is nice, but very upscale.

Other Options:

The Local

Devil's Advocate

Barrio (nice, but small)

Brits (more fun in the summer when you can sit outside)

Oceanaire (a little bit of a walk, but great drinks & food specials)

Enjoy!

Guys would like sneaky Pete's. Probably best sportsbar in downtown.

I am not a fan of Barrio. But I really like the Local, they have a really nice beer selection.

Also within walking distance is Zelo and happy hour there is fantasic! (not manly but good food)

That's an inaccurate and racist comment. You've been flagged.
