Minneapolis Date Ideas, No Reservations Required

Feeling spontaneous? Here are my top recommendations for an impromptu Minneapolis date night.

Gai Noi + Walker Art Center

Head to Gai Noi's upper level to enjoy lush rooftop ambiance at this hip Laotian eatery before strolling over to take in the latest exhibit at the Walker.

Bad Axe Throwing + Norseman Distilling

Test your aim with urban axe throwing at Bad Axe and then head over to Norseman Distilling for craft cocktails - highly recommend not mixing up the order on these two activities!

Broders Pasta Bar + A Lake Harriet Stroll

Enjoy house-made pasta at cozy neighborhood classic Broders' before taking a walk around nearby Lake Harriet.

Minneapolis Bouldering Project + Pryes Brewing

Newbies and climbing enthusiasts alike can find world-class climbing walls to scale at the Minneapolis Bouldering Project before unwinding next door with a craft beer and wood-fired pizza at Pryes Brewing's Taproom.

Next time you find yourself without a dinner reservation, embrace the spontaneity and explore these local gems!
