  • Getting here by Light Rail
    The METRO Blue Line offers fast, quiet light-rail service between downtown Minneapolis and Mall of America. Dozens of bus routes connect with the train at the Lake St/Midtown station, making the Hook and Ladder very accessible thru Metro Transit.
  • Getting here by Bus
    Lake St.and Minnehaha Ave offer many bus route choices and connectivity points. Plan your trip to The Hook here at Metro Transit
  • Getting here by Car
    You’ll probably use your smart phone for directions, but this is what to expect when you get here. We have a small lot to the North & South of the venue available for parking. We also encourage street parking to the West on Snelling Ave. A casual walk through the 3rd Precinct driveway and you will arrive at the venue.
    As a result of the ongoing Minnehaha Ave reconstruction project we are facing a number of logistical challenges through our opening and we just wanted to share some guidance with you to help make your upcoming visit to The Hook as smooth as possible.

    The Hook & Ladder Theater has a parking lot on the south side of the firehouse. The theater also has a small number of designated parking spots along the north side of the building for use. There is also free parking along Snelling Ave, which runs parallel with Minnehaha, and many nearby parking lots are accommodating local businesses like The Hook by allowing evening event parking, such as the large Rainbow Foods lot just across Lake Street. 

    The Hook and Ladder has (2) glass-door entrances to the building, one on the north side and another on the south side of the building. The Box-offioce is just inside the hallway as you enter the theater lounge.

Concert Schedule

The Hook and Ladder presents a wide variety of ticketed concert shows with the very lowest ticking fees in the Twin Cities.
