awesome people – nbe city is a great spot to enjoy the night life. it is also a great place to enjoy some drinks before, during, and after events at the arena. the bar staff is very friendly. if you go there you need to meet Jim and Eric they are the best and will take care of you the have fun and you will enjoy there show
Fun and energetic atmosphere. Great people watching – Great food and the place to be before a game. Great place to start a night on the town, good bartenders and never overcrowded.
Best Happy Hour around, 2 for one on everything and half priced apps – I went into NBA City with a bunch of my friends that are really into sports. I am not into sports and wanted to go somewhere alittle more quite with less T.V.'s. I thought it would be nice to actully have a conversation. Boy was I wrong. NBA City great. They had all these flat screen HD TV's that were everywhere but they were unintrusive. There was also so many different kinds of sports on that it actually increased our conversation. We also had a really great server named Nicole. Nicole recommened some great dishes. I had the filet and my friends all had pizza's. The pizza's were fantastic, the crust was thin with just the right amount of sauce. I think that the best thing though was the HH. We were in around 7:30 and did not expect HH to still be going(it goes till 8:00 and then again from 10:00 to Midnight). HH also includes everything, not very often do I get to drink Kettle one Martini's 2 for 1. Overall I had a great time at NBA City and plan on returning many times. My boyfriend says it will be his official NFL Football spot. He can bring his laptop and conect to his fantasy league( Wireless internet) while watching all the games.
The Ultimate Sports Bar – More and bigger HD TV's than anybody in town. A buddy of mine dragged me in to check out his new fantasy football hangout and I must admit I was blown away by the amount of TV's in the place. There isn't a bad seat in the house because you can see a TV and get wireless connectivity from anywhere in the restaurant. I've already got my spot picked out for next Sunday. Have laptop will travel.
BEST HAPPY HOUR IN TOWN!! GREAT SERVICE! HAS A "CHEERS" FEEL TO IT! – I VISIT NBA CITY WEEKLY. I USUALLY GO FOR THEIR INCREDIBLE HAPPY HOUR. THEY OFFER 2 FOR 1 DRINKS BETWEEN 5-8 AND 10-12 EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK. BEST DEAL DOWNTOWN. THEY ALSO OFFER 1/2 PRICE APPS DURING THESE TIMES. I HAVE COME TO KNOW MOST OF THE STAFF THERE. THEY ARE SUPER FRIENDLY AND ACCOMADATING, AND I KNOW THEY TRULY VALUE MY BUSINESS, ESPECIALLY NICOLE! SHE BARTENDS, SERVES, AND SOMETIMES SUPERVISES, BUT ALWAYS MAKES ME FEEL WELCOME. THE FOOD IS ALSO GREAT( CHICKEN PENNE, STRIP STEAK, AND THEIR HOMEMADE CARROT CAKE ARE SOME OF MY FAVS)! THEY ALSO HAVE SOME COOL GAMES TO PLAY W/ FRIENDS AND A RETAIL SHOP TO PICK UP THE LATEST NBA GEAR!! I DEFINATELY RECCOMEND THIS HOT SPOT FOR ALL!!
Awesome sports bar with surprisingly good food – Went in expecting the usual sports bar but was pleasantly surprised - good food, friendly service and a fun environment dedicated to all sports, not just the NBA. We went on a night when there was baseball, basketball and soccer all playing at the same time. The crowd was crazy and made the whole night entertaining.
Try the ribs or the NY steak. Both were excellent. My girlfriend really enjoyed her pasta - said it was the best she'd ever had.
Great for lunch – I went to NBA City on my lunch break. It was great! The food was service was awesome. I wasn't late getting back to work either. I'll definately go back. I hear they have Happy Hour too. I'm going with my boyfriend tonight. The restaurant is clean and really cool. I'm telling all my friends. NBA City rocks!
More than just basketball. – I expected NBA City to be just a regular old sports bar with some basketball hoops here and there. What I found, however, was a really fun atmosphere catering to sports fans of all shapes and sizes - with that many HD TVs, how could they not? The food was phenomenal, and I have frequented the restaurant numerous times since my first visit; there has yet to be an item I disliked. The Happy Hour has got to be one of the best in the downtown area, with 2 for 1 you call its every night. The staff seem to have a good time working and are very friendly. The combination of the environment, delicious, DELICIOUS food, and an enthusiastic server staff certainly warrant a visit. Get down there and check it out - it's more than just basketball.
great happy hour – I went to NBA City for the first time just last week and it was great. They have probably the best happy hour in downtown Minneapolis, as it not only goes from 5-8 but also 10-midnight every night. The food was amazing and if ever there ask for Amy the server. She was awesome
Best Lunch & Happy Hour in town! – Hello I visited NBA City on a week night! They have the best happy hour in town, My servers name was Maria she did such a wonderful job and also the staff was great! It was my first time and they gave me a free app! I would recommend it to everyone! I will be back soon! Thanks again.
