The Fillmore

The North Loop has a brand-new concert venue. Brandi Carlile kicked off The Fillmore’s grand opening celebration last week, and a number of concerts (many already sold out) are on the books for the 2020 season. Located at the corner of 6th Ave. N. and 5th St. N., the 36,000 sq. ft. venue can hold up to 1,850 concert-goers. With great hospitality, incredible sightlines, and a warm environment, The Fillmore is sure to entertain many North Loop residents and visitors alike.

For cocktails and a quick bite before or after the show, The Fillmore is home to Trax Burgers and Bar. Not going to a concert? You can still stop by seven days a week to enjoy their burgers, shakes, and a wide selection of craft beer.

Floyd’s Barbershop

Floyd’s is a full-service barbershop for both men and women offering old-school charm with new-school styles. Located next to Crisp & Green on Washington Ave., Floyd’s offers a variety of services including classic haircuts, color, waxes and specialty shaves. You can book an appointment on their website or download the app.

West Elm

West Elm is set to open their new North Loop location at the corner of 1st Ave. N. and 2nd St. N. with a grand opening celebration on March 5 from 6 to 8 pm. Their new spring collection will be on display along with an assortment of locally crafted goods by Minnesota artists ranging from small accessories to large works of art.
