Turf Club

1601 University Ave. W. St. Paul, MN 55104 | Macalester/Groveland | 651-647-0486

Location Description:

Few bars in St. Paul can boast the kind of bang-per-buck ratio as the Turf, where a twenty will get you in to see a three or four-band set -- usually featuring notable local and national indie-rock acts -- and enough drinks to last you pretty much all night. Upstairs features a classic, unpretentious '40s-vintage bar atmosphere, while the Clown Lounge downstairs hosts weekly jazz nights.
