Best Neighborhood Bar (Minneapolis) - 2013
Pizza Luce, Lyn-Lake neighborhood
3200 Lyndale Ave. S.
Minneapolis, MN 55408
For many folks living in the Lyn-Lake and Carag neighborhoods, taking a walk to Pizza Luce for a pint and a slice is a common event. While the location gets a lot of business from visitors during peak hours, the clientele on weeknights and odd weekend hours tends to be familiar faces from people who probably walked there. Ideally, a neighborhood bar is a place where you can relax and not do much while drinking with friends. Luce delivers. Its long, comfy booths make it the perfect place relax and drink a few beers or glasses of wine over an animated discussion, and the waiters are okay with that.
