Bar Hopping: Minneapolis

Here are some of the bars I went to while visiting Minneapolis:

Marvel Bar

This unmarked speakeasy can be found behind a restaurant, down some stairs, and behind a purple door. Marvel Bar serves the classics along with unique creations. Their original Oliveto was refreshingly different and worth a try.

Bunker’s Music Bar & Grill

For a casual laid back bar with live music, head to Bunker’s Music Bar & Grill. I enjoyed my go-to drink while listening to great music and chatting with a couple locals. They offer live blues, roots rock, funk, and R&B nightly.

Lake & Irving

You’ll find tasty small plates, craft beer, and incredible cocktails at Lake & Irving. I had the “KFC” and Furikake Chicken while sipping on some fabulous drinks.

Games and booze? Yes, please! Head to Up-Down for a bar offering over 60 tap beers and pizza slices surrounded by pinball machines, arcade classics, video games, and patio board games.
