North East

It is impossible to describe the classic charm and character of Minneapolis without discussing the Northeast neighborhood. Once known for its industrial atmosphere, the area has changed drastically over the past few decades. Yet, Northeast still manages to hold onto its residential, low-key charisma while allowing itself to get sprinkled with quirky bars, art galleries, scenic walks and restaurants.

Northeast is home to several annual events, including the Third Ward NeighborhoodFest, Canadian Pacific Railway’s Holiday Train event, Oktoberfest at Gasthof Zur Gemutlichkeit and the world-famous Art-A-Whirl art crawl. Appearing year after year on City Pages’ “Best Of” list for its unique restaurants, down-to-earth nightlife and living in general, Northeast has proven itself a neighborhood worthy of any “Best Of” list.
