111 Minna is an art gallery in which the entertainment and crowd are just as much a part of the effect as anything that might hang on the walls. Here you will find live music, dancing, performance art and film among your choices on a given night at this eclectic establishment. The small, intimate tables are perfect for discussing the art and those individuals who come to look at it. The cover charge varies by night.
