The Saloon

830 Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55403 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-332-0835

Location Description:

The GLBT-owned and operated Saloon has been a Twin Cities fixture for over three decades, offering an entertainment repertoire that caters to everyone from casual pubgoers to bear enthusiasts to diehard party boys. Traditional pursuits like karaoke and house-heavy DJ nights are augmented by more unique offerings like go-go "shower dancers" and Glee viewing nights. While the bar is a popular party focus, a recently added lounge section in the back of the building gives a more relaxed alternative to the crowded dancefloor.
