James Ballentine VFW Post 246

2916 Lyndale Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-823-6233

Location Description:

Located in the heart of Uptown, this isn't your grandpa's small town VFW. Sure, James Ballentine VFW Post 246 boasts all the familiar features of a traditional VFW - classic bar decor, cheap drinks, rooms for rent for wedding receptions and family reunions, bingo and popcorn machines - but what draws the crowds to this location is one of the most popular karaoke nights in town. Add regular record shows and a location within stumbling distance of several popular bars and one of the largest concentrations of apartments and condos in Minneapolis, and you have a VFW that may be host a smattering of older vets drinking by day, but is then packed sardine-style from sign-in book to popcorn machine by night.
