With more people being vaccinated and local businesses opening up more, you’re probably more than ready to start going out to eat again or grabbing drinks with friends. If you’re still a bit hesitant, outdoor dining is a safer option than dining indoors – but why dine out on the patio when you can take in the gorgeous views from the roof? With numerous options to choose from, we’re sharing the top rooftop dining spots in Uptown, Minneapolis.
Sip Sake at Moto-i
Located at the corner of Lake and Lyndale, moto-i is a modern Japanese restaurant, specializing in delicious ramen. They also brew sake, the traditional alcoholic beverage brewed from fermented rice, right on site. There are vegetarian and vegan options, as well as gluten free choices, so if you have dietary restrictions, there’s still plenty of delicious fare to choose from. Their rooftop dining area is set to open at the beginning of May in 2021 and should provide lovely views of the neighborhood.
Take in the Skyline from Stella’s Fish Cafe
Take in the skyline views and soak up the sunshine from four stories above the corner of Lake Street and Girard Avenue at Stella’s Fish Cafe and Prestige Oyster Bar. Enjoy sushi, oysters, and sashimi, as well as fresh fish and other seafood options, and don’t forget to check out their cocktails and wine options. For special occasions and private events, their SkyDeck is available for rent.
Italian Favorites at Amore Uptown
Amore Uptown serves classic Italian in the heart of Uptown and is a great option for both weekend brunch with friends and a romantic dinner for two. And what better way to make your experience more enjoyable than to eat out on the rooftop deck and enjoy the breeze coming from the lake? Up on the roof, you can enjoy seasonal cocktails alongside brunch favorites like the Ricotta Pancake or Amore Florentine, or for dinner, their signature Mushroom Passion or Gnocchi Pistachio.
The Pourhouse Uptown
Whether you want to hit Happy Hour after work or enjoy live music on the weekend, check out the Pourhouse. This Prohibition-themed bar is an energetic spot that serves classic American fare including burgers and appetizers and has a lengthy beer and cocktail list. With a second floor balcony, you can take in the night air and it’s a bit quieter for conversation.
Located at the corner of Lagoon Avenue and Girard Avenue, the Uptown Tavern is a popular location for burgers, flatbread pizzas, nachos, and other standard pub fare. What really drives the crowds is the lengthy craft beer selection and signature cocktails (including nine different takes on the Moscow Mule). This is a great spot to hit after taking in a movie across the street at the Lagoon Cinema, go out for late-night fun, or grab brunch on the weekends.
