The Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota has been heavily used for 20-plus years. It hosts about 200 events annually, and about a million visitors pass through its doors every year. Currently, the arena is undergoing a major renovation that will rejuvenate the building and dramatically enhance the fan experience. Visitors at all price levels will benefit from new and upgraded amenities, including many premium seating opportunities, food and beverage options, and additional gathering spaces throughout the arena. The first phases of the renovation were recently completed. Additional phases are ongoing.
Chairman’s Suites & Chairman’s Club
Located on the side of the arena bowl, the Target Center Chairman’s Suites include a private suite with a balcony and access to the Chairman’s Club. The club provides an elite dining experience with a complimentary, communal bar that overlooks center court. Each Chairman’s Suite is set up to accommodate groups of up to 18 people with 12 premium 22-inch seats and six bar stools at a drink rail. Currently, there are a total of 12 Chairman’s Suites. Due to the success of the Chairman’s Suites, there are future plans to add four more locations for a total of 20 when complete.
Located on the north and south ends of the arena bowl, the Target Center Theater Boxes provide opportunity for those looking to entertain smaller groups with the amenities of an all-inclusive club seating experience and a premium level location. Currently, there are a total of 20 Theater Boxes. Each Theater Box accommodates up to six people with four larger 27-inch moveable luxury chairs and two dedicated bar stools at a drink rail. These boxes are sold in four- to six-seat arrangements depending if the bar stools are desired for additional patrons. The seating is set up to maximize comfort and variation within the space for a more social experience. Other amenities include a seated dining area behind the drink rails that can be used prior to the event. Fixed bar and portable food carts are also included on the same level.
