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.

  • 19 Bar

    19 Bar

    19 W. 15th St. Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-871-5553

    http://19bar.itgo.com This laidback, come-as-you-are bar has been around since 1952. It's changed ownership a few times, and if you visited back in the day you'll notice that it's expanded just a bit. The brick walls and parquet wood bar are still there, along with numerous trophies won from pool leagues. Most of the patrons are regulars, and you may notice the bartender calling out your name with your choice of drink waiting if you're one of them. In 2010, City Pages dubbed it the best place to meet single gay men -- but it's certainly not a 'meat market' kind of place, so no skinny jeans necessary. 19 Bar doesn't cater to any specific demographic, so you'll likely find an overall feeling of being welcome once inside.

    508 Bar & Restaurant

    508 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-339-0036

    http://www.bar508.com One of the newer generation of sports bars to benefit from the close proximity of Target Field, the 508 isn't just a crash pad for Twins fans left without a ticket -- it's a booming, two-level club with sidewalk patio seating and better-yet-cheaper-than-average bar food.

  • 7th St. Entry

    7th St. Entry

    701 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55403-1327
    612-338-8388

    http://www.first-avenue.com Call it First Avenue's auxiliary wing if you want, but this small-capacity offshoot of the venerable club is every bit as integral to the venue's identity as the mainroom. Since the early '80s, the Entry has been an ideal venue for local showcases and indie-friendly touring bands, and the room's size -- cozy without being crowded -- guarantees that you'll always have good sightlines to the stage.

  • 8th Street Grill

    8th Street Grill

    800 Marquette Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55402
    612-349-5717

    http://www.8thstreetgrill.com In this skyway-strewn downtown, some of the best after-work hangouts still sit at street level, and the 8th Street Grill is one of them. The subdued decor and emphasis on homestyle cooking make it a subtler alternative to the garish whimsy of your typical chain restaurant, though the real reasons people go to those places -- namely a broad selection of appetizers and burgers, along with a massive tap beer list -- are still present. The 8th Street Grill also makes the most of its location sheltered beneath a parking garage: the entrance ramp doubles as the roof of an all-weather patio, complete with heat lamps.

  • Acadia Cafe

    Acadia Cafe

    329 S. Cedar Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55454
    612-874-8702

    http://www.acadiacafe.com Ever since they moved into their current location at Cedar & Riverside on Minneapolis' West Bank, the Acadia has made itself a welcome presence in a neighborhood with no shortage of great bars. Part of that owes to the club's bountiful beer selection, with more than two dozen tap brews and more than 40 bottle beers to choose from. Less-thirsty patrons, meanwhile, congregate there for their frequent no-cover shows, which run the gamut from rock to folk to experimental music. Read more about this Minneapolis bar or club >>

  • Aqua

    Aqua

    400 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-232-3232

    http://www.aquampls.com Aqua is emblematic of the 21st century mainstream club scene: candy-colored lighting, Top 40 hits throttled through a booming sound system, and an atmosphere of good, clean debauchery. The club's all-modern decor and post-Maxim attitude make it feel like the kind of zeitgeist-heavy place where nothing before the year 2002 actually exists -- which makes its location in one of downtown Minneapolis' oldest buildings that much more unusual.

  • Augie

    Augie's Bourbon Street Cabaret

    424 Hennepin Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-333-7652

    Located within stumbling distance of one of the northern-most light rail stops, Augie's features exotic dancers who may look slightly less like your second cousin (whereas Skyway, to the west, or BJs, to the far northwest, are likely to feel like your golt-darned family reunion), but at a cover charge and ambiance vibe worlds away from venues like Choice and Déjà Vu just to the north.

  • Bar Fly

    Bar Fly

    711 Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-333-6100

    http://www.barflyminneapolis.com The street-level portion of this Hennepin Avenue club complex is home to young crowds, top 40 DJs and regular drink specials. A large main room, the entryway "Boom Boom Room," and a summer patio give patrons plenty of space to party. Read more about this Minneapolis bar or club >>

  • Bar La Grassa

    Bar La Grassa

    800 N. Washington Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-333-3837

    http://www.barlagrassa.com Chef Isaac Becker, who runs the 112 Eatery with his wife Nancy St. Pierre, partnered with some of the restaurateurs behind Barrio, to launch this trendy, Warehouse District pasta bar. The space exudes the relaxed luxury of a wealthy person's family cabin and even though La Grassa means "the fat" in Italian, the eats aren't necessarily fancy or spendy. The menu looks like an Italian version of a Spanish tapas bar, including raw halibut antipasti, burrata bruschetta, and nearly two dozen fresh and dried pastas, the best of which is the pillowy gnocchi perked up with caramelized cauliflower and citrus. The pork ribs, marinated in garlic, rosemary, and chiles, are better than those at some places that call them their specialty: magically crusted on top, yet moist and fatty underneath. But don't eat too many or you won't have room for caramel crepes or lemon lavender mousse. Read more about this Minneapolis bar or club >>

  • Barrio Tequila Bar & Cafe

    Barrio Tequila Bar & Cafe

    925 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN 55402
    612-333-9953

    http://www.barriotequila.com Forget all the awful tequila stories you've heard (or told)--the ones that ended hunched over the toilet, waking up in a stranger's bed, or spending the night in jail--because Barrio is out to class up the much-maligned spirit. Tim McKee and Josh Thoma, of La Belle Vie fame, partnered with local real estate developers Tim Rooney and Ryan Burnet (Burnet worked with his father, Ralph, on the illustrious Chambers and W hotels) to create a tequila bar that treats the spring-break party drink with a reverence typically reserved for wine. The dark, cozy space is decorated in a Latin Goth, with an eerie, Day of the Dead-like festivity--you'd hardly recognize it as a former Dunn Bros. coffee shop. Despite Barrio's emphasis on its 100-plus-bottle tequila list, the food is what's really fantastic. Executive chef Bill Fairbanks (a longtime La Belle Vie sous chef) serves refined versions of street foods from Mexico and Central and South America: Tecate-battered fried mahi-mahi tacos, red chile enchilada with fried egg and chorizo, and barbecued pork sopes. He also serves some fancier fare, dishes like tequila-cured salmon, ahi tuna with quinoa, and diver scallop ceviche. Just make sure to save room for the churros.

  • The Belmore/The New Skyway Lounge

  • Bolt Underground

    Bolt Underground

    515 Washington Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55415
    612-338-0896

    http://www.eagleboltbar.com 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 this Minneapolis bar or club >>

  • The Brass Rail

    The Brass Rail

    422 Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-332-7245

    http://www.thebrassraillounge.com 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 this Minneapolis bar or club >>

  • Brit

    Brit's Pub & Eating Establishment

    1110 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-332-3908

    http://www.britspub.com 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.

  • Brothers Bar and Grill

    Brothers Bar and Grill

    430 1st Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-339-4240

    http://www.brothersbar.com 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.

  • Bunker

    Bunker's Music Bar & Grill

    761 Washington Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-338-8188

    http://www.bunkersmusic.com 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.

  • The Cedar Cultural Center

    The Cedar Cultural Center

    416 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55454
    612-338-2674

    http://www.thecedar.org 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.

  • Choice Gentlemen

    Choice Gentlemen's Club

    254 2nd Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-204-0207

    http://www.thechoicegc.com 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 this Minneapolis bar or club >>

    612-332-2686

    http://www.clubjager.com 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.

    612-338-2002

    http://www.yourcornercoffee.com Walk into this Warehouse District coffee shop, and you might be a bit waylaid by the idiosyncratic style: rustic mid-American murals and cabin-house wood trim share space with colorful mod decor, all in a space that, name notwithstanding, technically sits in the middle of the block. But with live music performances, art showings and all-day breakfasts, it doesn't take long to feel at home here. Read more about this Minneapolis bar or club >>
