The Fine Line Music Cafe
The Fine Line Music Cafe has been voted Best Music Club by the readers of Mpls./St. Paul Magazine for a reason—many reasons in fact. There's the sleek look of the nightclub, with its two-tiered cabaret-style seating, concrete bar, and homey hardwood floors. There's the brick walls that marry the modernist design with the historic Consortium building that houses it. There's the stellar acoustics, aided by a state-of-the-art sound system and a ceiling crafted with acoustic tiles. But most of all, there's the dependable roster of top-tier talent. The Fine Line Music Cafe is the place where The Pixies kicked off their reunion tour and filmed their documentary Loud QUIET Loud, and it's a place where a legend like Prince drops by to play or simply hang out. Other major acts that typically only play in packed arenas or at the end of rainbows—such as Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Maroon 5, and Lady Gaga—have also given intimate performances on The Fine Line's stage.
