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.

    Rail Station Bar & Grill

    3675 Minnehaha Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55406
    612-729-3663 At first sight, the Rail Station Bar and Grill -- located conveniently on Minnehaha just blocks from the 38th Street Light Rail station -- seems like most other bars in the neighborhood. It's got a daily happy hour. A Tuesday night wing night and game specials. Pull tabs, Bargo, trivia, karaoke and a meat raffle. But take note: unlike other bars within the vicinity, the Rail Station has a full bar, including hard liquor. Plus, on Thursday afternoons from 11-2, it offers free therapeutic chair massages to customers. And the side of the building has a cool train car attached to it, apropros to the rail-heavy neighborhood. Read more about Rail Station Bar & Grill >>

  • The Record Room

    The Record Room

    701 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-332-1775 This dance-party alcove of First Avenue used to be called the VIP Lounge, but that name never quite fit. That's because the shows that take place in what is now called the Record Room are a lot more democratic, freewheeling and affordable than the "strict and fashionable dress code enforced" velvet-rope ramparts scattered across downtown Minneapolis. Recurring DJ nights abound, from deep drum'n'bass events to get-wild hip hop sets. If your idea of seeing and being seen involves unpretentious style and the chance to listen to music that goes deeper than Top 40, this is your late-night destination.

  • Red Dragon Restaurant

    Red Dragon Restaurant

    2116 Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55405

    This iconic south Minneapolis hipster hangout delivers a punch--a Wondrous Punch, that is, the mega-sized drink full of rummy fruit goodness and wicked strong ferocity. The dining room is filled with black and red traditional Chinese-American décor from back in the day, down to the paper menus with Chinese horoscopes. No one really talks too much about the food at Red Dragon, although we like getting the appetizer platter and cooking skewers of beef over an open flame, and the fried chicken wings are very good in a bad-for-you kind of way. But Red Dragon is really all about drinking crazy strong drinks while sitting in a vinyl booth full of cracks, in a bar so dark you don"t know whether it's day or night and don"t really care. The jukebox kicks ass, too. Warning: Beware of the Wondrous hangover. Read more about Red Dragon Restaurant >>

  • Red Sea

    Red Sea

    320 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55454
    612-333-3349 The Red Sea as been a staple of the West Bank for two decades.

  • Red Stag Supper Club

    Red Stag Supper Club

    509 1st Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-767-7766 This latest venture from Kim Bartmann, proprietor of Barbette and the Bryant-Lake Bowl, is Minnesota's first LEED-certified restaurant. Fortunately, this information isn't pushed on diners: A supper club should be fun, not educational. And that convivial, old-school supper-club aura has not been lost here, despite the modern touches in the room and on the seasonal menu. The small plate menu features a pleasing chop salad with pomegranate seeds, Gruyere, and puffed wild rice. Entrees include everything from duck with house-made butternut squash ravioli to a six-ounce flatiron steak with potato puree and broccoli rabe. It may not be the supper club of bygone days, when multiple generations of families settled in at group tables for the night, but the Red Stag is at least as inviting.

  • Republic at Seven Corners

    Republic at Seven Corners

    221 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55454
    612-338-6146 When local restaurateur Matty O'Reilly, owner of the 318 and Aster Cafés, took over Preston's Urban Pub (formerly the decades-old Sergeant Preston's) on Seven Corners and replaced it with a concept called Republic, the news rankled some of the college bar's loyal clientele. But O'Reilly didn't do much to change Preston's character-rich space, beyond remove the flat-screen televisions, neon beer signs, and arcade games that detracted from the building's exposed brick walls, lofted tin ceilings, and ornate stained-glass windows. (Fear not, the iconic taxidermied deer, bison, and moose heads remain, as does the lovely patio.) Even without Preston's perilous fishbowls of booze, the place has maintained its student-hangout cred. O'Reilly made some nice upgrade: the smart, 32 tap beers and plates of scratch-cooked, pub-style fare are all priced for modest budgets--hardly anything costs more than $10. Favorites include the Thousand Hills beef and Wild Acres turkey burgers, the fish and chips, and the sausage and potatoes. For dessert, the $2 sweets pack plenty of satisfaction into three bites. You can sample the whole array of choices, then order seconds--or thirds--of your favorites. Read more about Republic at Seven Corners >>

    Rick Bronson's House of Comedy

    408 E. Broadway Bloomington, MN 55425

On any given night laugh fanatics can catch a familiar face from Comedy Central or a local up-and-comer.

  • Rick

    Rick's Cabaret

    300 S. 3rd St. Minneapolis, MN 55415
    612-321-0488 One of the gentlemen's club franchise's twenty locations across the country, Rick's offers a full bar and fancy lounge area with plush seating. Mini lanterns are scattered along the copper bar, and behind it the old-fashioned wooden built-ins house a vast liquor selection. The bar and lounge area are separate from the stage, but there are plenty of girls wandering through. The early open time of 11 a.m. on weekdays is one of the perks of Rick's, along with its daily happy hours and full lunch and dinner menu. Special nights range from Sunday's service industry night to Monday's amateur night to the flashback-hits format on the agenda for Wednesday afternoons. If you're driving to Rick's, take advantage of the valet, and once you're inside be sure to ask about the VIP services available. Read more about Rick's Cabaret >>

  • Riley

    Riley's Pub & Grill

    1267 Geneva Ave. Oakdale, MN 55128
    651-735-5356 Riley's recently took over for the old Beer Belly's in an Oakdale strip mall. New ownership plays it smart with a sports bar theme. Pool tables line a holiday light-laden wooden bar. Red vinyl booths provide comfortable seating to bar diners or drinkers. DJs and bands book a corner stage space on the weekends when patrons can cash in on generous drink specials from 9-11.

  • Riverview Cafe & Wine Bar

    Riverview Cafe & Wine Bar

    3745 42nd Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55406
    612-729-4200 Do you drink wine fairly often, and wish you knew more about it? Do you find you can't take a class because your free time is occupied with watching your heirs chew on large plastic keys? Well, load up the car seats and head to the Riverview Wine Bar, the greatest thing to happen to sociable parents since the invention of the backyard barbecue. The Riverview is two establishments connected by a door. On one side is a coffee shop with a vast play area, toys, little tables, and so forth, along with couches for the grownups (and all the coffee drinks you could ever want); on the other side is a romantic wine bar with a fireplace, great snacks like olives and pizzas, and a wine list with a serious education mission. (Half a dozen wine flights are always available, which means you get three little glasses of wine chosen so that you can taste and explore a grape varietal or particular region--do this a dozen times a year and you'll know more about wine than half the servers in snooty restaurants.)
