Description

City Pages' Description

Located in the heart of Uptown, this isn't your grandpa's small town VFW. Sure, James Ballentine VFW Post 246 boasts all the familiar features of a traditional VFW - classic bar decor, cheap drinks, rooms for rent for wedding receptions and family reunions, bingo and popcorn machines - but what draws the crowds to this location is one of the most popular karaoke nights in town. Add regular record shows and a location within stumbling distance of several popular bars and one of the largest concentrations of apartments and condos in Minneapolis, and you have a VFW that may be host a smattering of older vets drinking by day, but is then packed sardine-style from sign-in book to popcorn machine by night.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Order a Jack and (never more than a splash of) Coke to stoke your courage for the best karaoke the Cities have to offer.

    Some if the cheapest drinks on Lyndale. Good karaoke as well.

    A little piece of small town South Dakota in Uptown Minneapolis. It's like they took the bar patrons, the building and drink prices back from where I grew up and plopped it in Uptown. It's awesome!
