Full description

Discover a curated list of 4 of Minneapolis’ best bars with a guide on this walking tour. The tour goes beyond just drinking and delves into the stories of the individual bars and will have you interacting with the bartenders and sampling new drinks. Upgrade to a premium tour for an experience that includes 4 drinks. Meet your guide and follow them to the Warehouse District. What was formerly a dive has become the bougie capital of Minneapolis, dotted with distilleries, breweries, and hidden pubs.

Once you’re settled in with your drink, get ready for storytelling from your guide. Hear about what helped make the fascinating city of Minneapolis what it is today.

As you make your way to the 4th bar, get comfortable and enjoy one last round. Give yourself extra time for mingling and revelry before heading back. One-third drinking, one-third history, and one-third banter make this a thirst-quenching, educational, and social experience that has a little something for everybody.

    John was amazing. We had a blast walking through Minneapolis and catching drinks at some really fun bars. I would absolutely recommend this tour and tour company again.
