With eight bars, two restaurants, a drag lounge, and three huge dance floors all under the same roof, it is no wonder this is considered the mega mall of gay bars. The complex draws huge crowds, both gay and straight, looking for a place to hang out and dance or listen to jazz, blues or rock. If you want to get a peek at the gay life in the Twin Cities, the '90's is the only place you need to visit. Although the crowd is mixed, be forewarned the Men's Room is the only strictly gay bar in the joint. The bouncers are big, the drinks are potent, the food is excellent and you will get your money's worth. The burgers are consistently rated as the best in town by many local publications. Any beverage you can think of is available here. If you are looking for a real experience, this is the place to go.
The Saloon is one of the Twin Cities' main gay bars. From the Tank to the Chicken Coop to the Stand, this is where the action is. Leather is a necessity to enter the Tank. A dress code is enforced. Thursday is under-21 night, Tuesday features karaoke and Sunday is 1980's retro. On weekends, the club becomes the hottest dance party in town, straight or gay. The music is loud, the patrons rock until 3am, and the place is packed wall to wall. If the dance floor is too crowded, try pool, pinball, darts or video games. Burgers, sandwiches, salads and deep fried appetizers highlight the limited menu. The saloon has an excellent beer list, both domestic and imported.
