Owner description: Funky South Minneapolis area offering interesting stores and restaurants.

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 wait to try Libertine! It's easy to catch a bus on Hennepin. Hennepin isn't the most bike friendly street in my opinion although overall I'd say you can get around quite well on a bike in Uptown. It would be a place to walk around and check out the shops and find something to eat or coffee. I have always felt safe there but would not walk alone at night.

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 Cities. Too many sports bars, overpriced greasy food, not-quite-so ethnic restaurants, funky cousine and mediocre shopping.

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 or plan to pay. Definitely a fun spot for being out late on the weekends.
