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.

  • 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 >>

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.

    The Seville Club

    15 Glenwood Ave. N. Minneapolis, MN 55403
    612-465-8777 Not all strip clubs are created equal, and the Seville knows it.

  • Sinners


    123 Washington Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55401

    There's a certain stretch of Washington Avenue bordering downtown Minneapolis that acts as a sort of red light district for the area, and Sinners is right at the heart of it. An offshoot of the massive adult shop Sex World, Sinners has the same no alcohol/full nude approach as some of the other strip clubs in the area, though its reputation as a high-class, worker-friendly operation makes for an additional draw.

  • Toast Wine Bar & Cafe

    Toast Wine Bar & Cafe

    415 N. First St. Minneapolis, MN 55401
    612-333-4305 Toast is the wine bar put together by one of the founders of dear, departed Auriga, and if you can find its little half-underground home in the northern reaches of downtown Minneapolis's Warehouse District, you will be amply rewarded with fine, unusual, affordable wines and some of the best antipasti and cheese plates in town. The wine list is particularly strong on unusual offerings from Compania, Sicily, Salento, and other such places where the world-flattening Godzilla of Merlot and Chardonnay hasn't obliterated indigenous grapes. The charcuterie plate is all killer and no filler--it's got some of the best dry salamis and sausages available in the United States; the ever-changing cheese plate is presented with all kinds of fine-dining high-style grace notes, such as a bit of Italian pear preserves infused with spicy mustard. Paper-crusted pizzas are topped with sophisticated combinations, and desserts are often quite graceful. Sound like just the thing downtown needed? We'll toast to that.

The decor is bright, colorful, modern and inviting, with enough picture windows and street-level views to make it feel more like an urban neighborhood hangout than a rest stop for weary travelers.

  • Whisky Park

    Whisky Park

    15 S. 5th St. Minneapolis, MN 55402
    612-545-5235 Shea Design turned the former home of Banana Joe's nightclub into a country bar by bringing in a few whiskey barrels and black-and-white portraits of Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton and asking the waitresses to wear tiny jean shorts. On weekend nights, the hip hop is loud enough to cause physical vibrations, and patrons crowd around the mechanical bull. The cavernous Whisky warehouse was created by Gene Suh, who owns Lyndale Tap, a neighborhood bar known for its beer list and pit beef sandwiches. It's not a place to entice or develop whiskey connoisseurs, as the selections aren't so much unusual or rare, but, especially during happy hour, it's a place to drink affordably. The whiskey cocktails-Dolly-Would, Ring of Fire, and the Bull Rider, among others-sweeten up the reputed old-man's spirit with the likes of sour mix, orange juice, and Red Bull. Pair a few with homemade beef jerky sticks, Buffalo chicken pizza, or, the bar's star, the barbecue beef brisket served between two slices of Texas toast. Read more about Whisky Park >>
