Five Best Patios in the Minneapolis Warehouse District
The restaurant patio is the perfect way to enjoy summer. Is there anything better than an afternoon happy hour with friends under the sweltering sun, while you shoo mosquitos and flies away from your food? OF COURSE THERE IS! It’s enjoying that afternoon happy hour while you cozy up in your favorite sweater and enjoy the warmth of the sunshine offsetting the crisp fall air that kills all of the mosquitoes!
You see, I’m a firm believer that fall is the best time to enjoy the restaurant patio, so I’ve put together a list of the top 5 patios around CRASH+SUES (Warehouse District) to enjoy this fall season.
The best patio…
…during your workday lunch hour – The Bachelor Farmer Cafe
This cozy, ally-turned-patio is the perfect place to get your mind off of work for an hour. The food is great and when your belly is full, head over to Askov Finlayson, the door on the other side of the alley, and enjoy perusing the racks of fashionable clothes.
…before a twins game – Fulton Taproom
Grab some food at a food truck, one of Fulton’s signature brews and hit the patio at this favorite pre-game hangout.
…for a casual dinner – The Smack Shack
Despite all of the road construction next door, Smack Shack still has one of the best patios in the city. It’s well decorated and a great way to spend a Saturday night.
…on a fancy night out – The Monte Carlo
The Monte Carlo’s patio is one of the best decorated in the city. During the evening, strings of light dot the sky. There’s greenery everywhere and the layout of the tables provides a little more seclusion than other patios.
…on a lazy Sunday – Moose & Sadie’s
Across the street from the Monte Carlo sits Moose & Sadie’s. This little cafe serves up all sorts of local fare for your enjoyment and the patio sits along a row of delightful boutiques that you can browse after your meal.
