This delightfully quirky lounge has one of the best happy hours in town - it's definitely worth dropping by to see the jaw-dropping collection of relics, ornaments and furniture that are lavished throughout the bar. The charm lies in the seeming randomness of the decor, and the incredibly comfortable couches. Kitty Cat Klub also features local live music on a regular basis; check the website for more details.
At one time, Minneapolis had the lock on alternative rock hangouts. Not wanting to miss a good thing, Turf Club abandoned its long-time country format to cater to an alternative rock style. Soon rockers west of the river discovered the new turf and contributed to what has become one of the Twin Cities' most popular clubs. New bands have found a home to sharpen their acts during the week and on weekends the best the area has to offer takes the stage. An occasional national act makes the scene and it is packed to suffocation. Escape the music to play pool or darts in the lower level, the renovated Clown Lounge, featuring its own bar. Domestic and imported beers can be enjoyed by most but wine coolers, cocktails and soft drinks are also served.
The décor at Loring Bar and Restaurant is cozy and very luxurious. The high ceiling, lush plants and Oriental rugs provide a warm feeling. Iron candelabras grace each table and the tables stationed by the large windows are prime seating offering a glorious view of the park. Whether you're looking for a romantic evening, a place to relax after a night at the theater, or just meeting friends for a drink, this is the perfect place. The menu features pasta, salads, sandwiches and soups. The veggie appetizer plate with artichoke parmesan dip is a must. The wine and beer list is extensive and your cocktail order won't stump the experienced bartenders.
Featuring exciting concerts, diverse drink options and delicious food, Part Wolf is to the go-to place for unwinding after a long day at work. Live music concerts featuring talented local bands and singers, DJ parties and quiz nights are hosted here on a regular basis. Bocce leagues and competitions are also organized at Part Wolf. The beautiful patio at this bar is pet-friendly and provides the ideal setting for sipping your favorite drink and spending quality time with your four-legged buddy. Live sports matches are screened on large flat screen TVs placed across this bar much to the delight of sports fans in the neighborhood.
During the day, this is your typical neighborhood coffee shop with potted plants, a mixture of artwork on the walls and furniture that appears to have been confiscated from garage sales. A few nights a week, the lights are dimmed and the joint plays host to the Twin Cities' best singer-songwriter types. The acoustics in this high-ceiling venue are quite good. If the artist is popular, you may want to arrive early to grab a mismatched table and chair. The menu features a variety of flavored teas, coffee, latte and espresso, soft drinks and juice. A selection of pastries, cookies, hard biscuits, soup, salads and sandwiches is featured. There are three other locations in the St. Paul metropolitan area, check website for more information.
