Nightlife in Minneapolis


Select Local Merchants

Boxes of food, crates of beer, and new equipment are delivered to restaurants and bars daily. In the case of Keegan's Irish Pub, the most important delivery ever made to its St. Anthony East neighborhood location was not supplies, but the pub itself. Designed in Waterford, Ireland, in 2001, the pub immigrated to Minneapolis via boat and train in 2002. Once on American soil, its pieces underwent multiple crash courses on the career of Kirby Puckett before getting re-assembled in a Victorian-era style that keeps with the area's historic character. Today, perfectly poured Guinness beers and seasonal craft beers swirl around clinking glasses as patrons tackle hefty burgers and pub favorites, such as beer-crisped fish 'n' chips. Soft music plays in the background most of the time, except for when the pub plays host to live events, which fill the weekly schedule with energized rounds of trivia and rollicking performances from bands.

Toyota! The Runaway Musical Hit! is a comedic musical playing off Toyota's recent safety recall and public relations meltdown. The show has received positive reviews from several respected sources, including the New York Times, advocates for cyanobacteria rights, and all but one auto manufacturer. The story revolves around two pairs of passengers, each riding in a Prius. As the cars begin accelerating of their own accord, relationships begin to unravel, secrets are revealed, and harmonic laughter ensues. Go with a date to prove your keen yet socially aware sense of humor, as if you had hit him or her in the face with a cream pie produced by local, eco-friendly clowns.
