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.

  • Arones Bar

    Arones Bar

    500 Central Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414

    Atypically for Northeast, Arones offers a very "mom & pop" atmosphere with the low chatter of regulars and the background noise of the television set. The bar offers a few pool tables, a bookcase of worn soft-cover novels, a lottery-sale booth, well-played chess sets, and endless free popcorn. The bartenders provide nightly specials and cheap drinks in the cash-friendly bar, as well as a full food menu in the attached restaurant. Read more about Arones Bar >>

  • Aster Cafe

    Aster Cafe

    125 SE Main St. Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-379-3138 St. Anthony Main's Aster Café is located in what is arguably the most beautiful and picturesque slice of Minneapolis. The space features an extensive and quirky beer and wine list, simple but highly intelligent (and very local) breakfast, dinner, and dessert menus, specialty tea-infused cocktails, and an ambiance that is at once cozy and relaxed. Whether you're sitting at one of the copper-topped tables, at the hand-crafted wooden bar, or on the expansive outdoor patio, you've got the delightful view of the river against the backdrop of downtown. If you're around in the evening, things get very intimate as the lights are lowered and the stage is lit up for live music. Read more about Aster Cafe >>

  • Big 10 Restaurant & Bar

    Big 10 Restaurant & Bar

    606 Washington Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-378-0467 A campus institution, the Big 10 Restaurant & Bar has been serving the U of M community for generations. The exposed brick and wood booths give the bar a warm feeling, and the sports-bar decor reveals its focus on the local rooter crowd. The bar provides nightly specials and themed nights, including trivia night and ladies' night. And the sizable space can handle large crowds of sports fans, whether they're looking to celebrate their latest victory or sulk over a recent defeat. Either way, they're treated to a variety of beers on tap, free popcorn, classic rock tunes and a full menu. Read more about Big 10 Restaurant & 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.

  • 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.

  • Dubs Pub & Grill

    412 14th Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414-2006

  • Ground Zero

    Ground Zero

    15 4th St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55414

    Ground Zero is a centrally located bar with an authentic underground, industrial and stylish character. Don't be surprised to see the space decorated with chain-linked fences, street signs, stone statues and skeletons, as it adds to the subversive atmosphere created by the dominatrix cage-style dancers and low, colored lighting. It offers a very large dance floor, two levels, two bars, and several themed nights, including the long-running Bondage-A-Go-Go. Read more about Ground Zero >>

  • Honey


    205 E. Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-746-0306 Sitting between Ginger Hop and Kramarczuk's, this inconspicuous basement-level lounge is marked only by the honey bee on its door and windows. It makes for a nice late-night stop, featuring unique cocktails, small plates, desserts, and chocolates. The space has been transformed from what once had to be a dingy storage area into a hip, chic, and surprisingly beautiful venue. Honey is not without its raw walls and old concrete, but it makes up for it with plush couches, luxurious yellow lighting, and a notable low-hanging chandelier centerpiece. You can stop by almost any night of the week to catch some live music or a dance-worthy DJ set. Read more about Honey >>

  • Kitty Cat Klub

    Kitty Cat Klub

    315 14th Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-331-9800 A cabaret/lounge/bar with some of the most lavish and eclectic decor in Dinkytown, this campus hangout is fancy without being snooty. With regular live music, lots of casually comfortable seating and a well-stocked bar, this is a good place to get away from the chaos and hassle of the downtown meat-market scene. Read more about Kitty Cat Klub >>

  • Library Bar & Grill

    1301 4th St. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414-2028

  • The Library Bar

    The Library Bar

    1301 4th St. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-604-1900 Located in the heart of Dinkytown, the Library provides an ideal environment for red-blooded Gopher fans to watch the big game. Their menu offers a wide array of burgers and pub sandwiches to whet late-night appetites, and their wallet-friendly food and drink specials will bring in the coeds for "study" breaks on any given day of the week.

  • Mac

    Mac's Industrial Sports Bar

    312 Central Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-379-3379 This sports bar is located on the ground floor of a '60s office building, not quite the sparks-and-grease environment one thinks of when the word 'Industrial' comes up. But in this case, the term means industrial-strength: a dozen-plus TVs, more than two dozen tap beers and food and drink specials every night of the week. Read more about Mac's Industrial Sports Bar >>

  • Mac's Irish Sports Bar & Grill

    301 Central Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414-1019

    Mango Bar & Grill

    2200 Como Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414

  • Mattie's on Main

    43 Main St. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414

  • Nye

    Nye's Polonaise Room

    112 E. Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-379-2021 If Captain Kirk had come to Earth in Nordeast Minneapolis circa 1968 and had wanted to seduce a Polish princess, this is where he would have come. He would have escorted the lucky lass to a sparkly gold booth and impressed her with a dinner that ran the gamut from a chalice of shrimp cocktail to giant steaks to a Pink Squirrel for dessert. Meanwhile, the plastic-asteroid lighting and the crooners gathered around the piano bar would have put the lady in a romantic mood. The coup de grace? Everyone getting all hot and bothered while polka-dancing in the attached lounge. (That's why the captain was a scamp.) Nye's also features an inexpensive bar menu.

  • Otter

    Otter's Saloon

    617 Central Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-331-4169 Otter's Saloon, located in a triangular building hugged by Central, First and Seventh, is well-known for its rowdy weekend karaoke and cheap - and stiff - drinks. If you prefer to make more frequent showings in the karaoke rotation - or wish to avoid the frat crowd - visit on a weekday night (karaoke is offered 7 nights a week), peruse the extensive song book, and be sure to make friends with one of the many regulars.

  • Shiek's Palace Royale

    115 SE 4th St. Minneapolis, MN 55414

  • Sportsmans Pub

    2124 Como Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414

  • Sporty

    Sporty's Pub & Grill

    2124 Como Ave. SE Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-379-8407 A quintessential neighborhood bar, Sporty's has a certain small town charm, offering pool, darts, karaoke, arcade games and excellent drink specials. Each night of the week hosts a different theme or activity, including trivia, student nights, karaoke, and game day specials. It's a chance to connect with neighbors and hang out with friends in a fairly large, entertaining space. Read more about Sporty's Pub & Grill >>

  • Terminal Bar

    Terminal Bar

    409 E. Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-623-4545 While it shares a name and a certain vintage blue-collar grit with a bar from Martin Scorsese's misadventures-in-SoHo film After Hours, it's nowhere near as despairing -- probably because its atmosphere is infused with a rock-club vibe that lets bar bands cut loose on the regular. Read more about Terminal Bar >>

  • Tuggs Tavern

    Tuggs Tavern

    219 SE Main St. Minneapolis, MN 55414
    612-379-4404 As part of the Saint Anthony Main entertainment complex, Tuggs Tavern has a picturesque view of the riverfront and plenty of outdoor patio seating during nice weather. The tavern's not content to merely play up its choice location, however, and the fare is as much of an attraction. Pitchers take a backseat to towering portable "rocket" taps, and the elaborate burgers -- incorporating such elements as hash browns or bacon 'n' eggs -- defy the term "bar food." Read more about Tuggs Tavern >>

  • Whitey

    Whitey's World Famous Saloon

    400 Hennepin Ave. E. Minneapolis, MN 55414

    Whitey's is just across the river from downtown Minneapolis, and its gateway-to-Nordeast location places it alongside a number of bar and dining options. Its decor -- including a gigantic carving of a burlesque-style lady sprawling over its well-stocked bar -- is one thing that sets it apart; it's kitschy without being tacky or overly ironic. But once you're inside -- or outside on the patio -- its wide selection of bar food (including burgers and sandwiches) is what will wind up catching your eye even more.
