Best Gay Bar - 2012
Lush Food Bar
Lush in northeast Minneapolis looks like a sleek urban garage you might find in South Beach or New York. It's a place where the drinks flow strong and the music pumps loud, even on weekend mornings after you just woke up with a mean hangover. The champagne brunch on Sunday is a definite highlight, with $10 bottomless mimosas from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hometown favorites provide the DJ soundtrack throughout the week, including Shannon Blowtorch, Mustang Sally, and AJent Orange. Lush isn't one of those exclusive bars that caters only to gay men or gay women; they all mesh together here, making for a great crowd. Add to the amenities a billiards room and an outdoor fire pit lounge and you've got yourself a sure fun time any night of the week.
