The Loon Café
The Loon is a popular spot for Twins fans on their way to Target Field. Save yourself some dollars at the game by filling up beforehand on the best chili in the Twin Cities. The burgers aren’t too shabby either. Hours: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to midnight.
Mac’s Industrial Sports Bar
312 Central Avenue SE
Minneapolis, MN 55414
Mac’s location lends itself to fans of both the U of M and the professional teams that play downtown. With food and beverage specials every night of the week, over a dozen televisions and two dozen different beers on tap, you’re bound to find something to keep you entertained even if sports aren’t your thing. Hours: Monday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Hubert’s Sports Bar and Grill
Hubert’s prides itself on being a hardcore sports bar. When the Twins moved out of the Dome, Hubert’s (sort of) went with it, opening a second location at Target Field. With Hubert’s endless number of TVs, you’re never too far from the game – they even have them in the restroom. Hours: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.
Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings may be a chain, but they also are a staple of the Twin Cities sports bar scene. With 10 area locations, there is always one within reach. A generous number of TVs, cold beer and spicy wings are just what you need to make it through the game. Hours: Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to midnight; Sunday 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.
Nomad World Pub
Nomad World Pub may just be the most eclectic sports bar in the Twin Cities. It is known as the only destination for soccer fans. Others come for bocce ball and sand volleyball tournaments in the summer, though all come for the drinks. Hours: Monday through Thursday, 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
