The Amsterdam Bar and Hall is bringing a much-needed infusion of local rock to downtown St. Paul. Two stages provide plenty of room for bands to perform and fans to take it all in. The spot, owned by the Oulman family, who also run the 331 Club in northeast Minneapolis, offers a Dutch-inspired menu.
