For your convenience, the Dakota is now offering drive-up valet parking available through Uptown Valet for $15 + tax per vehicle (card only). Simply pull up to the corner of 10th Street and Nicollet Mall in front of the Target lobby doors starting at 5:30 pm, where you will be greeted by a friendly and reliable attendant who will safely park your vehicle. Valets will be available until 1/2 hour after the last show to return your car.

Metered street parking is available on 10th Street.

Underground parking is available in the Public Ramp located on 10th Street and LaSalle (enter on LaSalle). The ramp is clearly marked by a large Target logo AND a Public Parking sign over the entrance. Take the right-hand fork in the ramp (the Public Parking side). The cost is $6 for the entire night after 4:00.

From the parking levels, take the elevator to the lobby of the Retek building. We recommend going up the stairs or using the lift behind them, to get to the Skyway. From there make a U-turn and head to the Skyway crossing 10th St. to Target HQ. From there take the escalator down to our doors. We recommend returning to your vehicle the same way in reverse.

If you choose to exit the lobby of the Retek building after taking the elevator from parking levels, please be aware that all exterior doors back in will be locked by the time your show is over. You’re still able to access from outside if you scan your parking stub to the right of the revolving door and press the handicapped access button. Alternatively, you can take the escalator outside our doors to the Target HQ lobby, cross the Skyway across 10th St, take a left and walk west to the stairs returning you to the lobby where you can access the elevator to the parking levels.

Skyway access to the parking structure remains open until Midnight every night.
