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.

  • Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar

    Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar

    308 Prince St. St. Paul, MN 55101
    651-228-9274 Located across the street from the farmer's market in hoppin' Lowertown, Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar's warehouse space is bright and airy, with a high ceiling and lots of light. In a neighborhood infused with the arts, the Black Dog follows suit with walls covered in works by local artists. It also hosts poetry readings and throws a killer block party. An ideal urban coffeehouse featuring locally roasted blends, this is also a nice lunch destination with sandwiches, soups, salads, and pizzas focusing on local produce. Black Dog has a fine happy hour (daily 4-7 p.m.) with a good beer selection and lovely wine list. Try one of the pizzas with fresh basil and three toppings for $11.95. Sidewalk seating in the summertime. Read more about Black Dog Coffee and Wine Bar >>

  • Blarney Pub & Grill

    Blarney Pub & Grill

    412 14th Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-331-1527 The current occupant of a Dinkytown bar space that's been an institution for decades, the Blarney is a careful balance of college sports bar and Irish pub. It pulls off this dual personality with flying colors, thanks in part to a combination of special-priced fare, maroon-and-gold-meets-Emerald decor, and weekend live music.

  • The Blue Door Pub

    The Blue Door Pub

    1811 Selby Ave. St. Paul, MN 55104
    651-493-1865 With a menu driven by Jucy Lucys and all manner of fried goods (green beans, cheese curds, Spam bites, etc.), the Blue Door Pub is low on pretense but high on creativity and passion. The menu is dominated by scratch-made pub grub that puts a premium on quality and taste, and the atmosphere is friendly. Try the Breakfast Lucy ($8.50) if you're in the mood for something deliciously over the top. The creaminess of the fried egg, plus the thick-cut salty bacon, plus the burger, plus a whole mess of liquid cheese add up to one devilishly delicious meal on a bun.

  • Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant

    Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant

    2027 E. Franklin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55404
    612-338-3000 Modern humans evolved in Ethiopia, but what did our distant ancestors eat? Possibly something like injera, a fermented flatbread made from one of the earliest cultivated grains, called teff. At the Blue Nile, a large restaurant that often has live music and dancing in the attached bar, a big injera arrives at your table bearing ladles of stew; raafuu, for instance, a kale-carrot blend, or maraka lukuu, chicken on the bone in a thick, rich tomato-laced butter sauce. Order a sampler platter, and you'll get most of the best items on the menu at minimal expense. Tear off sections of the injera and use them to scoop up the stews. As you tear and scoop your way through your meal, consider this: What would Lucy have made of Doritos? Read more about Blue Nile Ethiopian Restaurant >>

  • Bogart

    Bogart's Place

    14917 Garrett Ave. S. Apple Valley, MN 55124
    952-432-1515 Tucked away in a hard-to-find spot in Apple Valley (don't blink or you'll miss it -- it's near the intersection of Garrett and Galaxie), Bogart's Place is a unique venue for three major reasons. 1: It is Humphrey Bogart-themed. 2: It has a bowling alley. 3: Coolio has played here. Check it out for its spacious bars, dance floor, DJ nights, live entertainment, and Texas Hold 'Em. Read more about Bogart's Place >>

  • Bolt Underground

    Bolt Underground

    515 Washington Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55415
    612-338-0896 Bolt's space is decidedly more techno-industrial than the pub-like ambiance of the adjoining Minneapolis Eagle. Brick walls and music video-playing projection screens dominate around a chrome rectangular bar and lofty ceilings with exposed pipework. Bolt dims the lights on Thursdays for goth-themed/darkwave "Chamber" nights. Read more about Bolt Underground >>

  • The Brass Rail

    The Brass Rail

    422 Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-332-7245 Is the Gay '90s a bit too labyrinthine? Simplify next door at the Brass Rail, where a narrow but deep bar extends into a dancing lounge complete with cushioned seating. The shows here are also stripped down, literally. Skip the drag get-ups and makeup, go straight to the skin: Brass Rail hosts a male revue Wednesday through Sunday. Read more about The Brass Rail >>

  • Brit

    Brit's Pub & Eating Establishment

    1110 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-332-3908 I say, old bean, want to run round to Brit's for a pint and a gander at some young, attractive professionals, wot? And Scotch eggs? Well, Scotch eggs if you lose a bet. Who eats a bread-crumb coated-sausage ball formed around a hard-boiled egg? That's what happens when you have to pick between cuisine and empire. Anyhoo, the lawn-bowling court out back is a real treasure, and if you score a Friday-night table, a couple of pints, and a plate of the ale-battered fish and chips, you might just end the night singing "God Save the Queen" to one of the comely up-and-comers that frequent the spot.

  • Broadway Pizza

    4106 Lakeland Ave. N. Robbinsdale, MN 55422-1832

  • Brothers Bar and Grill

    Brothers Bar and Grill

    430 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-339-4240 The number of sports bars around the Target Center/Field nexus in downtown Minneapolis might be too numerous to count, but Brothers fills its own niche in a busy district. With its vast cellar-level space, pool tables and bar games, armada of flatscreen TVs and a lighthearted, nostalgic decor, Brothers has all the feel of a well-maintained basement rec room -- only a whole lot bigger. Read more about Brothers Bar and Grill >>

  • Bugg

    Bugg's Place

    925 Concord St. N. South St. Paul, MN 55075

    One of the staunchest opponents of the 2008 Minnesota bars smoking ban, Bugg's in South St. Paul embodies a working class ethos and the value of personal freedoms. It's freedom that is celebrated on one bar wall, where framed pictures and street signs provide ample evidence that Bugg's appreciates our nation's veterans. A new wooden patio provides a view of winter broom ball and boot hockey league games, while horseshoe leagues are featured during warmer months. Read more about Bugg's Place >>

  • The Bulldog Lowertown

    The Bulldog Lowertown

    237 E. 6th St. St. Paul, MN 55101
    651-221-0750 The TVs, dartboards and shuffleboard table might say "sports bar", but the subtle decor and wide-open atmosphere makes the Lowertown location of this Twin Cities institution one of the neighborhood's most attractive nightlife destinations for residents and visitors alike. Besides, your typical sports bar doesn't boast the connoisseur-caliber beer selection and above-average food that the Bulldog offers. Read more about The Bulldog Lowertown >>

  • Bulldog NE

    Bulldog NE

    401 E. Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-378-2855 The Bulldog is big old bar-bar, the kind of place with napkin dispensers on the tables and hockey on the TVs, which also has steak tartare, house-made terrine, and elegant salads on the menu. Burgers are made with kobe beef, and the fresh, square-cut fries that arrive with the burger are as golden as croissants and taste as real as daylight. The Bulldog N.E. has a very nice little wine list, but the real drinking delights are in its remarkable beer selections--British import Young's Double Chocolate Stout goes far better with the unobtrusively gourmet-ified chili dog than wine ever could. Read more about Bulldog NE >>

  • Bulldog Restaurant

    Bulldog Restaurant

    2549 Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55405
    612-872-8893 Humans have weird superstitions about food, as any rhinoceros without his horn can tell you. However, ration and practical skepticism notwithstanding, please know that the Chicago Beef at Bulldog kills hangovers dead. Dead! No one knows why. Is it the steamy beef? The hot giardinera, all fire, vegetable, vinegar, and pop? Is it the golden-griddled bun? Is the magical power therein doubled by the addition of chili-cheese fries? Who knows? The mysteries here are impermeable to the forces of logic. Please know that the burgers are also good here, crisp and well seared, and the hot dogs are textbook renditions.

  • Bullseye Saloon

    9646 Main St. Elko, MN 55020

  • Bunker

    Bunker's Music Bar & Grill

    761 Washington Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-338-8188 The Warehouse District might have changed a bit in the last decade or so, but Bunker's has maintained its longtime Washington Avenue space as one of the strongest neighborhood music bars and restaurants in town. Legends tell of the occasional impromptu Prince drop-in jam session appearance, though longtime resident bands like the International Reggae All-Stars and funky R&B specialists Dr. Mambo's Combo are top-notch draws in themselves. Read more about Bunker's Music Bar & Grill >>

  • Bunny

    Bunny's Bar & Grill

    5916 Excelsior Blvd. Minneapolis, MN 55416
    952-922-9515 Bunny's Bar & Grill has been a St. Louis Park institution for over 70 years, delivering a wide array of food and beverages to its faithful patrons. Game days get pretty lively, with fans crowding the spacious bar, tuning in to Bunny's vast amounts of big screen TV's. The neighborhood atmosphere of the place is sure to make you feel welcome no matter what team you're cheering for. Read more about Bunny's Bar & Grill >>

  • Buster

    Buster's on 28th

    4204 28th Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55406
    612-729-0911 Neighborhood bar known for its large beer list--dozens of hard-to-find drafts come from as close as Wisconsin and as far as Belgium. Better-than-average bar food includes bison burgers and homemade salt-and-vinegar potato chips. Read more about Buster's on 28th >>

  • Buttered Toast Productions

    7250 Hudson Boulevard N. Oakdale, MN 55128

  • 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. Read more about Cabooze >>

  • 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.
