Top 10 MN Wedding Venues
If you’re looking for a wedding venue, know that there are plenty of amazing places in Minneapolis that suit a variety of budgets.
The venues that I’ve compiled here represent just a few of the great choices that you have available. They’re ranked in random order – not necessarily from one to ten. Please note that this list is ranked completely by personal opinion. These top ten places don’t necessarily indicate the most popular or highest rated venues in the state of Minnesota.
1. Day Block Event Center
The Dayblock Event Center is right in the heart of Minneapolis, and it’s located right on top of a brewery that some people may be familiar with – Dayblock Brewery.
I chose Dayblock for my top ten list because it’s beautiful on its own, but also serves as a wonderful blank slate for couples that want to add some personal touches to the space.
Day Block features wooden floors throughout, wooden beams on the ceiling, and exposed bricks on the walls. The venue is located within a historic building that dates back to the 1800s, and there are lots of interesting features that come along with that history.

2. Windows on Minnesota
The Windows venue offers one of the most beautiful views available in all of Minneapolis – the space is located on the 50th floor of the IDS tower in downtown Minneapolis, meaning that you can see almost the entire city through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Besides the view, the venue has all kinds of great features. The space is stylized with a modern look and has a large, open feel.
3. Muse Event Center
The Muse Event Center is a Minneapolis wedding venue located in the popular North Loop neighborhood. Like Dayblock, Muse is both beautifully stylized as well as something of a blank slate for those looking to deck the place out.
The venue features a more modern and industrial look and has concrete floors, a large balcony, and high ceilings. There’s even a separate room with a built-in bar for guest to enjoy as the room is flipped or before a reception.

4. Varsity Theater
The Varsity Theater is located within the “Dinkytown” neighborhood of Minneapolis, and it’s a great choice to consider for a Minneapolis-area wedding.
The Varsity Theater is known as a great music venue, but it serves wedding couples just as well. The long and open space has a great look all on its own – even without decorations!
It’s also important to note that this venue can handle a fairly large group – it has plenty of space as well as a balcony that overlooks the stage and first level.

So far, The Hutton House has been known for its photogenic appearance with lots of white spaces and stunning features. At this venue, look for white brick, a fireplace, and a modern, classy design.

7. Loring Pasta Bar
The Loring Pasta Bar is just down the street from the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown. It’s a popular choice among wedding couples because of the classical Italian style. The Loring Pasta Bar is truly one of the most unique looking venues that you’ll come across as it offers something just a little bit different from what you might be used to.
That said, it should be noted that the Loring Pasta Bar can accommodate primarily small to medium sized weddings. It would be best to check with the venue to figure out their capacity before attempting to book a larger wedding in the space.
