Wilebski's Blues Saloon

Wilebski's has been a St. Paul mainstay since 1979, and in earlier years it featured such legendary performers as Etta James and John Lee Hooker. Since then, it's been reinvigorated by a move from its location on Western Avenue North to a new spot on Rice Street. The ambiance of the new Wilebski's feels a little like your uncle's hip basement rec room mixed with an old-timey saloon, though it always reminds you that it is first and foremost a blues club. As such, the generously-sized space features a cavernous live room with plenty of space to see and hear music, with friendly sight-lines all around. In addition to weekend and Tuesday night live acts, the bar is open seven days a week and features a full menu.
