Downtown is where culinary scenes and skyscrapers coalesce. North Loop is a culinary playground, where reclaimed warehouses now host some of the city’s most Instagram-able kitchens. Nicollet Mall is the pedestrian oasis, filled with expansive street side patios. Hennepin & First Ave are the entertainment epicenters, where the buzz of theaters and music venues pairs perfectly with late-night bites and rooftop bars. In Downtown East, Owamni garnered national acclaim with its James Beard award, elevating the area’s dining scene to new heights.
