Twin Cities igloo dining

How about taking your dining plans outdoors? Yes! Even in these frigid temps, you can still dine or enjoy a beverage outside – comfortably!

So many twin cities restaurants and bars creatively arrange their outdoor patios with igloos, fires, or heat lamps so that we Minnesotans can still enjoy the outdoors all year round.

Below are some places for you to try outdoor dining this winter! If we missed one, please email us and we’ll get it added to our list!
