Best Venue Name
After months spent combing the Twin Cities' finest venues for inspiration, City Pages is proud to name the Venue as the venue with the Best Venue Name. It's a winner because it's minimalistic. Simple. Chic. Classy. And it's also the club where Li'l Wayne pulled a no-show after members of his entourage refused to be searched by the Venue's security. After Wayne's June 2015 stunt, the Venue's Facebook page promptly changed its profile image to a shot of the exterior and then proceeded to remain inactive until February 2016, when it returned to Facebook to announce a 2 Chainz show. Apparently, things have been going smoothly ever since at the generically titled music hall, but with a name like the Venue, you'd expect nothing less.
