If you are into moody bars with happy hours, dining alfresco (in season) at good restaurants, meeting for coffee in quaint cafes, bike riding in nearby James I. Rice Park then this historic industrial quarter is a place you will want to head to.

Also popular in the North Loop of the city are art galleries, smaller retail shops and the nearby Target Field. What we found most interesting here though is the uniform architectural look and height of the buildings.Some vary in ‘style’ not in keeping with their original use in the manufacturing and milling industry. However, seen from a distance they look much the same.

Keeping with the ‘warehouse’ look is probably the most unique feature of this district. It is a pleasant area to visit during the day but might not be a place to roam alone late at night unless of course you live there and are familiar with directions.

Enjoy your experience!

This area on the edge of downtown Minneapolis is full of historic high-rise warehouses, transformed into lofts and offices. Once used by artists, the area soon became too costly but they left many interesting galleries. Maintaining the creativity theme, buildings now house software, advertising, publishing and marketing firms.
For the visitor, numerous restaurants and bars offer dining and the top nightlife area in the metro. Architecture buffs can visit the Butler Square Building and other historic buildings, including a warehouse designed by Cass Gilbert. On the edge of the district is a pretty nondescript Target. Center (home to the NBA Timberwolves) and Target Field (home to the Twins).
