  1. hubert's would be the obvious (independent) choice...

    1. For total number of TV's you can't go wrong with The Loon Cafe, Smalley's 87 Club, Hubert's (Target Center location) or Sneaky Pete's. All within 1 block of each other (First Avenue between 5th & 6th) if the scene get boring.

      Loon Cafe
      500 1st Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55403

      Hubert's Sports Bar & Grill
      600 1st Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55403

      Sneaky Pete's
      14 N 5th St, Minneapolis, MN 55403

      1. re: hody_007

        thanks that's great info we are from Winnipeg so don't know the bar scene but 1st ave sounds good

      2. Kieran's Irish Pub has a huge screen that will be playing the game, and better bar food than the other obvious choices downtown. Especially the Ploughman's Platter, some excellent local charcuterie.
