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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dixie

    Dixie's On Grand

    695 Grand Ave. St. Paul, MN 55105
    651-222-7345 Dixie's may not be enough to make a true Southerner feel homesick, but it does serve a wide variety of Gulf state comfort food. Its generic but comfortable décor matches its middle-of-the-road menu, heavy on "blackened" fish and meat, sandwiches, and Cajun spices. The jambalaya and gumbo are popular favorites, along with po' boys (catfish, shrimp, and pork), and house-smoked barbecue. Entrees are generally $13 to $20 and range from Kentucky bourbon pot roast and honey pecan chicken to coconut fried shrimp and seafood potpie. Specials every month feature food from a different Southern state. Summer options include a patio and Sunday champagne brunch. Read more about Dixie's On Grand >>
