“For over a quarter of a century Brit's Pub has been Minneapolis's own little corner of the UK. The pub is known for nights by the fireplace in the winter and lawn bowling on the rooftop deck in the summer - with a whole lot in between including legendary TV football (soccer!) and rugby events. We are also proud to have a unique range of Private Event spaces, many with their own bar and fireplace. *downtown”

Gay Bar

“The Retro Bar inside the Gay 90s is where I go to dance to Michael Jackson, Prince, Kesha, and Brittney. But tip the DJ well and he'll play anything you want. There's also a whole array of stripper poles to dance on - if that's your thing. :)”

Breakfast Spot
$$
“Hen House Eatery specializes in local food and drink. We use the freshest locally-sourced ingredients we can find and serve breakfast all-day. Our bar features a variety of craft beers and specialty bloody mary’s. And don’t forget our bakery to satisfy your sweet tooth. The concept for Hen House Eatery hatched when three friends who loved serving breakfast downtown Minneapolis decided to open a place of their own. With a shared vision of creating a dining experience that was both welcoming and vibrant. A place you can enjoy a homemade meal cooked with heart and soul served with a splash of creativity.”
