Parking

We’re not gonna lie, parking in Uptown can be a challenge. To make life easier here is a cheat sheet of parking options. We’ve also included some alternatives to driving as well.

On Street Parking (Unicorns)

There are many on street parking options near the store but of course finding one will take some patience and luck. If you manage to grab one of these, you may want to buy a lottery ticket as well!

Your best bets are along 26th to 29th street on DuPont or Emerson or along Lagoon Avenue.

Parking Alternatives

Many excellent options exist that can get you to the store without the need to bring a car. Uptown is notorious for traffic, we encourage our customers to keep an open mind and explore these auto alternatives.

The Greenway

Why not get a little exercise before indulging? Loulou is directly on the Greenway at Emerson and 28th. Walk, run or bike to the shop and enjoy a little reward for all that hard work!

Public Transport

Several bus routes can place you within 1-3 blocks of the shop. By far the least expensive motorized option.

Uber/Lyft/Taxi

Depending on your location this may be a bit pricey alone. But if you are planning a night out enjoying Uptown’s bars after your treat, why not gather a group of friends and split the ride? Plus Minneapolis Uber drivers are very friendly.
