New Year's In the North Loop

New Year’s 2020 in The North Loop

December 26, 2019 by Joe Grunnet

A new decade is upon us! And there’s no better place, in our opinion, to celebrate the New Year than right here in the North Loop! Many North Loop bars and restaurants will be staying open well past midnight on December 31st, and several are even planning special events to help locals ring in 2020 in perfect downtown Minneapolis fashion.

DRG’s Top Picks to Inspire Your New Year’s Plans

1.) Graze Provisions and Libations will be featuring not one, but TWO parties this year! If you’re looking for some family friendly fun, join them from 5-8 p.m. for a celebration that will feature a magician, photobooth, balloon drop, and more! The best part is there’s no cover charge for this early event, so bring the whole family!

If you’re looking to ring in the New Year a little later in the evening, join them from 9 p.m.-1:30 a.m. for a big celebration that will include an open bar, one food items from the vendor, and music from a DJ. The second party does have a cover charge.

2.) Looking for something different to help celebrate a new year? Grab your friends and head out to The Hewing Hotel for a unique 2020 Space Odyssey themed party! The $100 cover charge includes complimentary featured cocktails, live music, light bites, dancing, interactive fun, and more!

3.) If live music is your jam, you might want to stop by Bunker’s Music Bar and Grill for their live Reggae music from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Cover charge is only $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

4.) The Roaring 20s theme will be the talk of the town at The Freehouse. Join the staff and arrive in your favorite 20s attires while you enjoy great food and drink special, as well as a DJ, all starting at 10 p.m. No tickets required but reservations are encouraged!

5.) The Loop, which is also celebrating its 13th birthday in the North Loop, will be featuring a DJ starting at 9 p.m. There will be no coverage charge, but you can reserve a VIP table.

6.) Ring in the New Year with a laugh at Acme Comedy Company! Their 10:30 p.m. show will feature comedian Bengt Washburn. Spend $30 for the show or $60 for dinner and a show!

7.) If you’re looking for something a bit more low key this year, be sure to check out The Bachelor Farmer, Borough and Kado No Mise, all featuring prix fixe menus with optional wine pairings for the holidays.
