In a world where gay bars are legion but gay lady bars are far too few, the Town House has attained classic homecoming status for the flirty, freaky, and friendly. Near the Hamline station in St. Paul, this dark bar with dive-appropriate prices flaunts drag queens and kings every Wednesday night, karaoke three nights a week, and Bingo on Fridays to benefit the Aliveness Project, a community center for people living with HIV. Extra hospitality includes pool tables, darts, a patio for smokers, and the cheapest, greasiest pub grub you'll ever need. There are ample girls who like girls, girls who bring their boyfriends, girls in wifebeaters and leather, girls in plaid with oversized glasses, drunk girls who give each other fishtails, trans girls, trans boys, and boys who like to dress up as girls. Straight people are welcome too. No one's going to look twice. The bartenders are lovely. Bring cash.
