Station 4

Station 4

Station 4 boasts a convenient location, friendly bar staff, an unostentatious neighborhood-bar atmosphere and a stage area that accommodates metal's loudness well.
Clubhouse Jager

Clubhouse Jager

This immaculately-restored Germanic-style pub with its popular outdoor patio is a sort of trendy end-cap of the Warehouse district's nightlife, foregoing a TV-assault atmosphere of noise for a relatively low-key atmosphere.
Whole Music Club

Whole Music Club

Nestled in the basement of Coffman Union, the Whole has been a fixture on the U of M's campus since the hippie days. There's no such thing as an expensive show here -- typical cover charge is $5 or less.

  • C.C. Club

    C.C. Club

    2600 S. Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408
    612-874-7226 Upon first impression, the C.C. Club appears to be just a typical sports-bar-style dive joint. However, after spending just moments inside, you'll notice a young, trendy, energetic crowd that frequents the bar to enjoy its comfortable, informal and entertaining vibe. The booths sport pleather, the walls are paneled wood, and the full bar is decorated with twinkling lights. The jukebox plays familiar rock music, and there are Pac-Man tables and arcade games for entertainment. However, a majority of the young urban patrons are engrossed in a stream of pool games and cigarette breaks on the noteworthy smoking patio. The bar offers a variety of drinks with nightly beer specials and a full menu. Read more about C.C. Club >>

  • Cabooze


    917 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55404
    612-338-6425 Named for its intentional resemblance to a super-sized train's caboose, this light-rail-adjacent venue has long stood as one of the area's most prominent blue-collar clubs. Though its bikers-and-blues atmosphere is what gives the Cabooze its working-class charm, it also plays host to country, indie rock, hip hop, jam bands and everything in between.

  • Cajun Club

    1400 Main St. Houlton, WI 54082

  • Camp Bar Twin Cities

    Camp Bar Twin Cities

    490 N. Robert St. St. Paul, MN 55101
    651-292-1844 A relaxed atmosphere and a subtle self-awareness help this quietly popular St. Paul gay bar stand out. Flatscreens, artsy decor and comfortable couches give it an accessibly upscale atmosphere. Read more about Camp Bar Twin Cities >>

  • Cardinal Tavern

    Cardinal Tavern

    2920 E. 38th St. Minneapolis, MN 55406

    Like other South Minneapolis bars of its ilk, the Cardinal Tavern serves beer, wine, and no booze. But dry your eyes -- it offers plenty more to make up for it. The bar has a full kitchen with great specials on burgers, carries Jakeeno's Pizza (another South Minneapolis mainstay), offers karaoke, pool tables, darts, and game specials. And, most importantly, it's just a jump away from the 38th Street Light Rail station, making it a convenient place to stop pre- or post-game. Read more about Cardinal Tavern >>

  • The Cedar Cultural Center

    The Cedar Cultural Center

    416 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55454
    612-338-2674 While they've hosted plenty of touring and local rock and jazz bands, this West Bank institution is the place to go if you want to see the cream of world music. This converted movie theater, featuring both seated and standing viewing, has hosted everything from Tuvan throat singing to Scandinavian folk to African hip hop and beyond, making it one of the most globally illuminating venues in the Midwest. Read more about The Cedar Cultural Center >>

  • Cedar Inn

    Cedar Inn

    4155 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55407

    Some may call it a dive bar, but the Cedar Inn is more accurately described as a delightfully small-town sort of spot, located in the heart of South Minneapolis. Expect a friendly crowd of locals, some seated on a picnic table out front when the weather's nice, as well as checkered decor, typical bar fare and affordable beer and wine. Also expect to be offered the beer list if you ask for a rum and coke -- Cedar Inn, like many establishments in the neighborhood, does not serve hard liquor. Read more about Cedar Inn >>

  • Chatterbox Pub

    Chatterbox Pub

    2229 E. 35th St. Minneapolis, MN 55407
    612-728-9871 There are dreams you never knew you had, like the dream of being instantly transported to the best basement in town, circa 1983, where you can play Atari in television/lounge-chair/couch pits. Don't you wish Mom would have brought you craft-brewed ale and a basket of fries while you crouched in the darkness? Well, Mom never would, but the friendly staff at the Chatterbox will. Not for everyone, but there's something about this wine and beer bar that speaks to Gen Xers and Gen Yers in a special language. Read more about Chatterbox Pub >>

  • Chatterbox Pub

    Chatterbox Pub

    800 Cleveland Ave. S. St. Paul, MN 55116
    651-699-1154 Those who've lived in the 'hood for a while may remember the days when the space just off Cleveland and Ford Parkway was just another late-night Perkins hangout. These days the space, now doubled, serves as a sort of super-sized version of the original South Minneapolis Chatterbox, with the same karaoke, the same trivia, the same food and drinks and board games and vintage video games in front of comfy old sofas, but quadrupled and with better (read: less fried food smell) ventilation.

  • Choice Gentlemen

    Choice Gentlemen's Club

    254 2nd Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-204-0207 With an apt name, Choice is one of the more upscale spots to see exotic dancers in the city, though it by no means feels exclusive. Located in a simple white building in the warehouse district, and down the street from the flashier Deja Vu and the grittier Sex World, its vibe is slightly more casual, more professional, less big bright lights and neon undergarments. Also note that the venue does not sell liquor, which means its dancers perform fully nude, both onstage and in private lap dance cubbies. Read more about Choice Gentlemen's Club >>

  • Christensen

    Christensen's Big V's Saloon

    1567 University Ave. W. St. Paul, MN 55104
    651-645-8472 While Minneapolis has the Terminal Bar, St. Paul has Christensen's Big V's: a funky dive where you can catch a multi-band bill for a negligible cover charge and have plenty of cash left over to down a few drinks. Read more about Christensen's Big V's Saloon >>

  • Claddagh Irish Pub

    Claddagh Irish Pub

    7890 Main St. N. Maple Grove, MN 55369
    763-773-7400 Claddagh's decor makes you feel like you're in an old Irish castle: high ceilings, a fireplace and stained glass windows are encompassed by sturdy brick walls. Even with the old-country inspiration behind Claddagh, it still incorporates modern bar amenities, from flatscreen TVs to patio seating with a fire pit. The menu features many classic Irish dishes, as well as an appropriately lengthy whiskey selection. Read more about Claddagh Irish Pub >>

  • Clown Lounge At The Turf Club

    1601 University Ave. W. St Paul, MN 55104-3820

    The Clown Lounge is located in the basement level of the Turf Club on University Avenue in St. Paul. It was originally opened with the intention of featuring a collection of clown memorabilia, but eventually it morphed into a smaller, more intimate music venue than the club upstairs. Today, its wood paneling, well-worn leather booths, and taxidermied animals adorning the walls give it a unique hideaway feel. The Clown Lounge eventually started hosting some of the most experimental jazz nights in town, which featured a weekly Monday night Jazz Implosion hosted by JT Bates and his Fat Kid Wednesdays cohorts for over half a decade. The small room still hosts some various live performances that serve as a nice compliment or contrast to what is happening up on the main stage above, as well as a quiet, cozy place to get away for a bit while things are getting crazy at the Turf.

    10 S. 5th St. Minneapolis, MN 55402

  • Club Underground

    Club Underground

    355 NE Monroe St. Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-627-9123 Looking for live music or comedy but not in the mood to tackle the crowds downtown? Located below the Spring Street Tavern, Club Underground offers both, Thursdays through Sundays. Don't let the dungeon-like quality of this basement venue fool you; most nights the club features your typically friendly crowd of Northeast folks. Read more about Club Underground >>

  • Clubhouse Jager

    Clubhouse Jager

    923 Washington Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-332-2686 This immaculately-restored Germanic-style pub with its popular outdoor patio is a sort of trendy end-cap of the Warehouse district's nightlife, foregoing a TV-assault atmosphere of noise for a relatively low-key atmosphere. At least, it's relatively low-key in the early evenings -- later at night, their itinerary covers live-band shows and dance parties like the popular, eclectic rock offerings of Transmission.

  • Cork

    Cork's Irish Pub

    175 10th St. E. St. Paul, MN 55101
    651-224-5111 Cork's Irish Pub is tucked away on the outer fringes of downtown St. Paul, but its comparatively off-the-path location doesn't keep this cheerfully decorated, old-timey bar (complete with penny-farthing bicycle) from being lively on a weeknight. And while its proximity to the Embassy Suites hotel may be a factor, there's still plenty to attract the locals, from music and trivia nights to a Sunday afternoon build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. Read more about Cork's Irish Pub >>

  • The Corner Bar

    The Corner Bar

    1501 Washington Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55454
    612-339-4333 A wide-open room with high ceilings and a centrally-located bar, the Corner Bar has a roomy feel to it that makes even the most crowded nights feel spacious. Friday night open mics and Saturday comedy lineups are regular highlights. Read more about The Corner Bar >>

  • Cosmos


    601 First Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-312-1168 It might not be one of the seven wonders of the world, but it sure ranks as one of the seven design wonders of Minnesota. The word breathtaking doesn't even do justice to this Charles-and-Ray-Eames-meet-the-Matrix marvel of a dining room, where elements of classic Modernism are interpreted through natural, elemental materials. The kitchen uses top-shelf ingredients (like meats and cheeses culled from the best farms in the country, including products from some of the best Minnesota farmers). By the time you're swooning over your plate at Cosmos, you will have mastered at least one of the mysteries of the cosmos-namely, where the heck the place is. (Up on the fourth floor of the Graves 601 Minneapolis, on First Avenue, accessible only through the hotel lobby.) Read more about Cosmos >>

  • Country Bar and Grill

    Country Bar and Grill

    3006 Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408

    If you're looking for cheap drinks, wings and burgers in Uptown, the Country Bar fits the bill. This venue also features regular karaoke, DJs, and a casual atmosphere that might remind you of one of your grandpa's rural Minnesota haunts by day but turns over to a younger crowd by night.
