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.

  • 1029 Bar

    1029 Bar

    1029 Marshall St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-379-4322

    http://www.the1029bar.com There's an air of unusual traditions at the 1029, at least if the dozens-if-not-hundreds of brassieres hanging from the walls are any indication. But that's more whimsical than tacky, and the 1029's casual Nordeast atmosphere keeps things lighthearted and neighborhood-friendly. Read more about 1029 Bar >>

  • 22nd Avenue Station

    22nd Avenue Station

    2121 University Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55418
    612-789-9876

    This is probably your dad's favorite strip club, and quite possibly yours too. Finally, something you and the old man can agree on! Described as one of the few places in town where the most heavily-tattooed women can find gigs dancing (and are indeed most welcomed), the "Deuce Deuce" or "Double Deuce" as it's frequently called by locals is an unassuming spot, blending in seamlessly with other Northeast bars nearby. Part of its appeal is that one side of the bar looks like any other bar in the neighborhood, replete with pull tabs, meat raffles, and jerky in plastic tubs with screw-on tops. But the other room? A teeny catwalk, pole affixed, and dancers who are much more casual than at other locales. And that jukebox? Don't touch it - the ladies are in charge of it. Tip generously, and maybe they'll let you put in a request. Read more about 22nd Avenue Station >>

    331 Club

    331 13th Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413

    http://www.331club.com A Northeast Minneapolis destination for years, the 331 has all the amenities of a neighborhood bar -- unpretentious atmosphere, tasty bar food, a generous happy hour -- with a few touches of unique character. Stop in on Sunday during brunch hours to try out their build-your-own-pancake menu, or drop in anytime during the evening for shows from numerous local bands, including resident gigs by local country/folk stalwarts Glen Hanson and the Roe Family Singers.

  • Dusty

    Dusty's Bar

    1319 Marshall St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-378-2118

    http://www.dustysbaranddagos.com Tucked away in a lonely little corner on the edge of Northeast Minneapolis, Dusty's is your quintessential dive bar. Famous for its house-made Dago burgers, this simple little slice of a place is a mix of dive bar classics with a few unexpected treasures. In one corner, the old-fashioned jukebox will play you any number of classics, the one TV mounted in the corner will play only local games, and the no-pretenses bartender will pour you a no-nonsense tap beer. But lo: there's a little side door that leads out to one of the most unexpected and utterly lovely patios in town, filled with a half dozen tables and some Christmas lights. It's an intimate, partly covered space shoved into an alley, and packs a lot of charm for a place that would never call itself charming. Overall, Dusty's is the place if you're in the mood for a quiet drink alone, a dirt-cheap dive bar-great lunch, or a cold beer to enjoy with the game. Read more about Dusty's Bar >>

  • Erte

    Erte

    612-623-4211

    http://www.ertedining.com Northeast's upscale take on the traditional Minnesota steak and seafood house hits many positive marks. The rooms are lovely, full of art deco features, with high ceilings covered in tin and wall painted in jewel tones. Erte offers modern takes on classic dishes like brisket, cooked for an entire day, served with carrots and mashed potatoes, or sunflower-crusted walleye with a sweet corn relish. The Peacock Lounge is a wonderful stop for a classic cocktail. Order a martini or Rob Roy. Bonus: bottles of wine are half-price on Monday and Tuesdays. Sidewalk seating available in the summer.

  • Knight Cap Lounge

    Knight Cap Lounge

    1500 4th St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-789-5233

    Within stumbling distance of over a dozen other Northeast bars and situated in the heart of the working class neighborhood, this cozy and generally low-key bar is a fine place for a namesake night cap, whether it's after work or post-pub crawl. But last call drinking isn't all it's good for. Darts, a pool table, meat raffles, and affordable food and drinks are enough to draw people young and old into the bar every night of the week. If pool and darts aren't your thing, order a drink and zone out while watching the fish in the massive aquarium built into the bar. Also notable: the facilities here are amazingly clean.

  • Lush Food Bar

    Lush Food Bar

    990 Central Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413-2452

    http://www.lushfoodbar.com Lush is a place where the drinks flow strong and the music pumps loud, even on weekend mornings after you just woke up with a mean hangover. The champagne brunch on Sunday is a definite highlight, with $10 bottomless mimosas from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (although they do serve breakfast every day). Hometown DJ favorites man the turntables, including Shannon Blowtorch, Mustang Sally, and AJent Orange. Lush isn't one of those exclusive bars that caters only to gay men or gay women; they all mesh together here, making for a great crowd. Add to the amenities a billiards room and an outdoor fire pit lounge, and you've got yourself a sure fun time any night--or day--of the week. Read more about Lush Food Bar >>

    http://www.mayslacksbar.com Locally renowned for its Original, an obscene portion of roast beast garnished with peppers and slapped on a bun, Mayslack's has been a NE Minneapolis institution since 1955. Hipsters and oldsters alike belly up to the bar for a wide range of cocktails and beer, including Minnesota favorite Grain Belt's new Nordeast, a brew named for the neighborhood. Dim lighting and high-backed booths allow for lying low, and live bands Thursday through Saturday nights provide permission to groove. Read more about Mayslack's Music Lounge >>

  • The Moose on Monroe

    The Moose on Monroe

    356 Monroe St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-623-4999

    Imagine this: a bar in Northeast with a townie vibe. Okay, no surprise that the Moose on Monroe has that kind of feel, but what sets it apart from other Northeast dives? Well, most Northeast bars have charitable gaming in the form of pull tabs, but at the Moose, you can test your luck at one of the bar's many poker tables. Texas hold 'em, bingo, karaoke, bar food and rib nights, all in one spacious bar. And if you're an early bird (or just up all night), check on the Moose for its breakfast - the bar opens at 9 Monday through Friday, 8 on the weekends. Read more about The Moose on Monroe >>

    612-788-9069

    http://www.psychosuzis.com A tiki bar and pizza joint with style to burn, Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge puts the va-va-voom back into neighborhood drinking. Its new location, in the former home of Gabby's, has expanded the size of Northeast's most popular watering hole an enormous riverfront patio and three second-floor bars open only on weekends. First, duck into the dark, red-lit room and soak in an eyeful of every youngish hipster in town. Start the evening by chucking your quarters into the hall of fame-worthy jukebox and soaking in the majesty of the pirate-ship-deck carpeting. When mood strikes, order yourself some standup pizza or some church potluck bar snacks (deviled eggs! pickle roll ups!). And why not buy the cutester across the bar their own tiki glass? It's only a couple of extra bucks. Read more about Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge >>

  • Red Stag Supper Club

    Red Stag Supper Club

    509 1st Ave. NE Minneapolis, MN 55413
    612-767-7766

    http://www.redstagsupperclub.com 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.
