Wine Bars in Minneapolis

We all enjoy a great glass of wine  while enjoying a night out on the town.  Here is a list of can’t miss Wine Bars and restaurants in Minneapolis.

Bev’s Wine Bar – For nearly 20 years, Bev’s has remained a local hotspot for Warehouse District residents, serving perfect pours of house selected wines, beers and cocktails. Bev’s features an intimate atmosphere with views of the downtown skyline, a great contrast to the noisy clubs and bars. Bev’s does offer a small “bites” menu so sit back, relax and enjoy.

Kings Wine Bar – Kings Wine Bar is a gem of a spot.  If you find yourself in the Southwest area stop in and explore over 100 bottles.  We recommend you also try the burger.  It may be one of the best you have ever tried.  Kings makes their own tater tots served with a gorgonzola-bacon sauce..WOW.  Entrees are available from 5-10 each day and pop in for brunch which is served on weekends from 9-2.

Lucia’s Wine Bar & Restaurant – Lucia’s Wine Bar & Restaurant located uptown is a cozy spot to enjoy a glass of wine, beer or a cocktail.  The bar menu includes pizzas, soups, salads and small plates to satisfy your appetite.  They offer drink specials nightly (except Friday and Saturday) from 9-11.  Order a plate of meat and cheese to accompany that glass or bottle you order.

Riverview Wine Bar – The Riverview Wine Bar in Longfellow has worked hard to create a neighborhood bistro offering quality wine, food and beer in a comfortable atmosphere. With over 100 wines their list meanders the globe, from France to Chile, South Africa to California, New Zealand to Italy. If beer is your choice, the Riverview kept you in mind. They stock forty or more bottled beers, from nearly as many places as their wines.  Enjoy live music every night in their cafe or curl up in their fireplace lounge and if you want some fresh air enjoy their large outdoor patio.

Toast Wine Bar & Cafe – If you find yourself in the North Loop check out Toast Wine Bar & Cafe.  Their wine philosophy focuses on small family producers with an emphasis on sustainable, organic or bio-dynamic farming techniques.  They also seek out producers who are working to preserve the indigenous grape varietals in each AVA or wine growing region – thus promoting and strengthening each area’s unique “sense of place”.  Make sure to turn your cell phone ringers off because Toast is an environment to enjoy the company your with and mingle with the folks next to you.  They offer a daily Happy Hour from 5-6.
