CLOSED. There are beer bars, there are themey goofy cocktail palaces, and then there are the bars for the people who understand the differing architectural signifiers of the two. If you understood that sentence and live in south Minneapolis, Azia is likely your stylish, but low-key lounge, bar, and restaurant. It's got soaring silver ceilings and all sorts of tropical drinks such as the splendidly named Hello Punch. And don't so many, many people deserve a Hello Punch? Discuss this point with friends over the best cream-cheese wontons (with cranberry!) in town. Fancier entrees often have less success, but since the stylish, flatteringly lit, sexy spot serves till 2:00 a.m. every night, offers all kinds of interesting happy hours, decent-priced lunch all day, and sizes their appetizers to share, it's well loved.
