Powderhorn is lively urban community made up of eight neighborhoods, including Whittier, Corcoran and Bryant. It stretches from I-35W to Highway 55/Hiawatha and from Lake Street down to 42nd/ 43rd Street. Powderhorn is a community notorious for its creativity and strong community spirit.
At the center of this neighborhood is Powderhorn Lake and Park, which host many family-friendly events all year round, including the May Day Parade in the spring and the Powderhorn Art Fair. This massive park is centrally located and offers playing fields, a community center and fireworks for the 4th of July in the summer.
The rejuvenated Lake Street is home to many local businesses and the restored Sears Building complex that is now the Midtown Exchange. Nicollet Avenue has recently become the premier strip for cuisines from around the world. Known as “Eat Street,” this multicultural stretch includes many new restaurants as well as longtime local favorites, like the Black Forest Inn, Little Tijuana and the Bad Waitress. Just off Eat Street are many local, signature neighborhood establishments such as May Day Café and Matt’s Bar, which is home to the world-famous Jucy Lucy and was featured on Man v. Food and Food Wars.
