With its large student population and thriving performing-arts scene, Minneapolis has an active nightlife. Check City Pages for current goings on.

Live Music

Minneapolis rocks; everyone's in a band, it seems. Acts such as Prince and post-punkers Hüsker Dü and the Replacements cut their teeth here.

Theater & Performing Arts

The city hosts a vibrant theater scene. The neon-lit Hennepin Theater District (www.hennepintheatretrust.org) consists of several historic venues on Hennepin Ave between 6th and 10th Sts that host big touring shows.


Minneapolis is home to three major sports franchises, including the Twins (baseball), the Vikings (football) and the Timberwolves (basketball). Neighboring St Paul is home to the area's national ice hockey and soccer teams.
