A Wonderful Place to Wander | Loews Minneapolis

What’s better than sitting on a rooftop of a bar or restaurant during the summer in Minnesota? Nothing! The few months of summer that we have are coveted, so we’ve rounded up a list of the best Minneapolis rooftop patios, all within easy reach of Loews Minneapolis. Join me, won’t you?

UNION Rooftop

If you haven’t been here, then you must! The beauty of this rooftop restaurant is that it is open all year round.  What’s that? In Minnesota, all year round? Yes! This is one of the best of its kind in the Midwest. A retractable glass rooftop makes it perfect for literally ANY kind of weather. Rain, shine, blizzard or hot summer months… this is at the top of my list, and it needs to be at the top of yours. For real.

CRAVE Rooftop 1

CRAVE Rooftop – Downtown Minneapolis

This establishment has the same ownership as UNION Rooftop, so you know you are going to get some of the best experiences here, too. CRAVE Rooftop sits one block down from UNION, with spectacular views of downtown Minneapolis. Feel like dancing, even on a weeknight? This is the place to go. I would know because it used to be my jam… and once my twins are old enough to not scare off any babysitters, I am going back to have some fun! In the meantime, they will be joining me for sunny lunches and amazing dinners. Go. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Brits Rooftop

Brit’s Pub

Ahhhh, the ever so famous Brit’s! This rooftop is also unique in the city as they have outdoor bocce ball. The rooftop itself sits only about two stories high, but the surrounding skyscrapers give it a real cityscape atmosphere and the views are amazing, especially at night. Come for a drink and game of bocce, stay for the breeze and the great people-watching!

Seven Steakhouse Rooftop Deck

Seven Steakhouse Rooftop Deck and Bar in Minneapolis

Seven Steakhouse and Sushi

Right behind the back doors of Loews Minneapolis lies one of the larger rooftops in Downtown Minneapolis. This is one that always makes the list of “must-go-to” rooftops thanks to the variety of its menu and fun happy hours. The rooftop is always full of life, the drinks flowing, the food hot and the views incredible. Enjoy!

Cowboy Jack’s 

This is the newest kid on the block in Downtown Minneapolis, and the rooftop is the place to be. If it rains, perhaps you can distract yourself with a ride of the mechanical bull? But best of all, they have live music as well as great food and drinks. It’s just three blocks away from the hotel.

So, the next time you are thinking of paradise, or hear Coldplay’s song “Paradise,” think Minnesota! Come and catch some of our amazing rooftop season. We look forward to welcoming you and guiding you to the best of the best.
