If you don't have a tailgating spot before the next big game at US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis, we have you covered.

Here are the 5 best sports bars and restaurants around the home of the Minnesota Vikings, US Bank Stadium.


Grumpy's Bar and Grill

1111 Washington Ave South

Minneapolis, MN

** I personally like their sandwiches, but they offer alot of your typical bar food and of course a full bar.  Less than a half mile walk to US Bank Stadium.


The Old Spaghetti Factory

233 Park Ave

Minneapolis, MN

** A classic in the area, the name speaks for itself.  Tons of seating and reasonable pricing considering the portions they have. And yes, TV's guys. Distance from US Bank Stadium is only 0.1 miles.


City Works

600 Hennepin Ave

Minneapolis MN

** A bit farther away than most, but with as many TV's as City Works has up on their walls, it's probably worth the walk or short uber drive. Check out their Buffalo Chicken dip and sip on a Banana Bread brew.


Crooked Pint Ale House

501 S Washington Ave

Minneapolis MN

**  They have a beer cheese juicy lucy.  Need we say more? Ok, plenty of great food, drinks and TV's to keep you happy.  Plus, it's only blocks from the stadium.



600 N First Ave


*** This one used to be the closest to the Metrodome, but out of all the ones that we have on this list it is now the farthest.  Located at the Target Center, this downtown staple still provides great pregame options.  Check out the cheese curds if you want a Minnesota tradition.
