Epic - Closed

110 N. 5th St.
Minneapolis, MN 55403
The name and ownership of this swanky club space have changed over the years: it started out as Prince's own Glam Slam, then had a long run as the Quest before being reinvented as Epic in 2007. The club's vibrant, brightly-colored decor and pop-art futurism -- not to mention its elaborate sound system -- complement the repertoire's heavy emphasis on pop, hip hop and electronic dance shows.
