I'm flying out tomorrow for all 3 games. Does anyone have any restaurant and bar recommendations around Target Field?

Thanks.

Hands down, Kieran's Irish Pub. http://www.kierans.com/

It's about 2 blocks from Target Field and is always rockin' before and after games.

Depends what you're looking for. There are tons of places right around the park. Kierans is a good spot if you're just trying to have a few beers and stand around. It usually pretty crowded pregame and the food is only okay.


A place called Cowboy Jacks just opened right next to the park as well. Great food and a fun place. Worth checking out.

The 508 Bar is pretty close as well, has great food and is a fun pre-game spot.

But really, if you walk around just east of the park towards the downtown area, there are tons of places to hang/eat/drink, etc.

Enjoy your time. Maybe I'll see you at the park; I'll be there tomorrow and Tuesday.

For breakfast in downtown:

Expensive and delicious (http://www.hellskitcheninc.com/), make a reservation.

Generic (http://www.keysfoshay.com/index.shtml), but good.

If you want to travel to the University area, the best breakfast joint is Al's (https://plus.google.com/101143478737907789612/about?gl=us&hl=en). Al's is a diner with seating for ~10 people. It's pretty fun, they will give you **** if you try and order a latte.

Been to both Keys and Hell's Kitchen. Hell's Kitchen is great no matter what the price.

For Bars, try The Brit (don't forget to go on the roof for the lawn bowling) or The Local, which has some petty good food. Both are on the Nicolett mall. For post game try Smalley's 87 just outside the ballpark. Can be crowded, but on a good night its good post game banter.

I really liked the Alley Tavern over on 5th St... about a quarter block from intersection of 1st and 5th. The Alley has a neat beer garden. Probably a 5-10 minute walk from Target Field.

Plenty of other bars/restaurants around the Alley Tavern. Next store is a pizza by the slice place that is open late. I didn't like the pizza though. Over at the 1st and 5th intersection, there is a divey pizza place which, believe it or not, has awesome slices. It's right outside the light rail.

I'll be back in the cities in Sept. for the Sox/Twins series. I can't wait!

Brits. For sure Brits.

Sneaky Pete's is a fun place, for a few drinks.
