Attending a Twins game at Target Field, located in the historic Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis, is a unique and exciting urban entertainment experience. Come early before the game or stay later after the game to experience downtown amenities, pre and postgame activities, shopping, dining, unique sights, parks and other entertainment events. Enjoy the extra time to savor Target Field and the downtown experience.
All Target Field restaurants open at gate opening. Arrive early and make Nicollet Mall, Hennepin Avenue, 1st Avenue or the North Loop neighborhood your destination. If you want to sit down and enjoy your meal, get downtown early to give yourself plenty of time to pick a restaurant, eat, and walk to Target Field. If you just want something quick, you'll still want to give yourself walking time and accommodate for others that have the same idea, especially if you are within a few blocks from the ballpark.
Hennepin and 1st Avenues provide excellent night life with countless restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs. Whether you are looking for a bite to eat, a few drinks after the game or an extended Twins victory celebration, you can find the right place just blocks from Target Field. Plan ahead by seeking out dining guides before your visit or make an adventure out of it by setting out on-foot and choosing whatever places catches your eye.
