Gay 90's

Minneapolis, MN 55401

City Pages' Description

Self-proclaimed as a gay & straight- friendly "beautiful people" bar, the Gay 90's has been a Minneapolis touchstone for decades. The drink specials will appeal to any penny-pincher, and the nightly drag shows are pure entertainment. The building itself is more than 90 years old and was initially bought piece by piece, creating the 6 unique bars of the Gay 90's. As you would imagine, each bar has its own theme and look, from tin ceilings and rock walls to painted murals on the walls left over from the days a Chinese restaurant took residence. Such an effort to make a large bar out of many businesses may go unnoticed by the crowd, but it's appreciated by the many generations that have frequented the Gay 90's.

    Awesome drag show. Manila from RuPaul's Drag Race was allegedly born here.

    The best feature of the 90's is, of course, their drag shows, Thursday (downstairs in the main room) and Friday through Sunday (in the LaFemme Show Lounge). It's some of the best drag in town.
