Where to Watch Twins Baseball: Game Day Bars in Minneapolis

Like many things in life, the great American pastime is best enjoyed with others. That’s part of what makes going to the ballgame such a great experience. But, if you can’t make it through the gates of Target Field for game day — or if the boys are on the road — you may be wondering, “Where can I watch the Twins game in Minneapolis?”

A Twins watch party can be nearly as fun as going to the game — and it can even offer a number of advantages over sitting in the stands. The right bar will have plenty of fellow Twins fans to cheer on the team, providing all the excitement and camaraderie you could ever ask for. With more freedom to circulate, you might even find yourself meeting new people and sharing thoughts about the team.

Best of all, bars that play the Twins on TV will likely have a cheaper, wider and more accessible selection of food and drinks than the stadium. So, if you’re thinking about joining a Twins watch party in Minneapolis, which one should you go to?

Here’s where to watch Twins baseball in 2024 for the best game day experience:

Graze Provisions + Libations

If you’re missing Target Field, Graze might be your next best option! It sits only a few blocks from the stadium and offers all the buzz of the North Loop neighborhood.

With a handful of independently owned and operated vendors, you might even feel like you’re at the ballpark. Choose from a variety of exciting food options, from southern-inspired low country barbeque to flavorful Hmong food to Vietnamese-Mexican fusion to burgers, sandwiches and savory snacks. Graze is even home to Soul Bowl — a popular vendor at Target Field.

Then, there’s the drinks. Graze features the Libation Lounge, with a wide selection of hyper-local beers and craft cocktails. If that’s not enough, The Last Drop Cafe + Wine Bar serves outstanding wine, mimosas, hard lemonade on tap, espresso martinis and more. And both vendors serve a variety of exciting non-alcoholic options, too.

Graze Provisions + Libations has a large footprint, including several different indoor spaces, a large courtyard, a rooftop patio and two indoor/outdoor bars. However, the best game day experience can be had at the Ms. Pac-Man Lounge, where there’s an enormous wall of TVs for the ultimate viewing experience.

Fulton Taproom

As Minneapolis’ first ever tap room, Fulton Taproom is a great place to be — for Twins games, celebrations, or any sort of outing. Fulton Brewery makes delicious beer, as evidenced by the hundreds of restaurants that serve it. So, whether you’re into IPAs, ales, lagers, stouts or even hard seltzer or THC drinks, you’re sure to find something you love.

The fun doesn’t stop at the drinks, either. Fulton also offers a small handful of surprisingly good snacks, tacos and sandwiches. The menu is designed to pair well with the drinks on tap, creating an excellent casual dining experience. 

Between the outstanding drinks, fare, and community feel, Fulton is a great place to turn into Twins territory.

Pizza Lucé

Delicious pizza? Check. Beer on tap? Check. Enough said?

All joking aside, Pizza Lucé may not be your first thought when it comes to Twins watch parties, but it should definitely be on your list. This locally famous chain serves award-winning, imaginative pizzas along with mouthwatering hoagies, salads, appetizers and desserts. 

Baseball and pizza may not be a classic pairing — unlike baseball and hot dogs — but who doesn’t want a Twins-themed pizza party? Add to the mix beer on tap, and you’ve got yourself one great place to watch the game. 

And, did we mention that Pizza Lucé is always open until 2:30 a.m.? It’s the perfect solution for those west-coast road trips, where games stretch deep into the night.

Mac’s Industrial Sports Bar

Searching for the ultimate blue-collar Twins party? Look no further than Mac's Industrial Sports Bar. This local gem is practically a tailgate-party manifested into a sports bar, with die-hard fans bleeding blue and red.

With a large centerstage bar and plenty of seating, Mac’s is packed with Twins fans during the summer, and always delivers a lively — if not on the edge of rowdy — atmosphere. There’s a satisfying selection of appetizers and sandwiches on the menu, and even all-day breakfast. As you’d expect, Mac’s features a wide array of beer on tap, and even offers a five-dollar weekday happy hour that lasts right up until game time — so you can get the party started early. 

If you’re into good beer, a celebratory atmosphere, and good old-fashioned bar food (done really well!), Mac's is the place for you.

Playyyyyyyy Ball!

Don’t miss out on one pitch of the excitement this season! Whether you’re interested in a big party, a pizza party, a fun tap room or a gameday experience with a variety of vendors, you’re sure to have a great time watching the Twins win.
