A gay bar with more bona fide gay men than straight girlfriends, the Saloon has repped the Twin Cities LGBT community for more than 35 years with unflinchingly spectacular circus nights out and Pride block parties that command and conquer. Come for karaoke and costume parties and numerous plush bars. Watch drag done right. Sunday nights offer a special baptismal service in the form of a wet 'n' wild stripper platform thought by some to be a religious experience. Chiseled abs abound.
