City Pages' Description

If Captain Kirk had come to Earth in Nordeast Minneapolis circa 1968 and had wanted to seduce a Polish princess, this is where he would have come. He would have escorted the lucky lass to a sparkly gold booth and impressed her with a dinner that ran the gamut from a chalice of shrimp cocktail to giant steaks to a Pink Squirrel for dessert. Meanwhile, the plastic-asteroid lighting and the crooners gathered around the piano bar would have put the lady in a romantic mood. The coup de grace? Everyone getting all hot and bothered while polka-dancing in the attached lounge. (That's why the captain was a scamp.) Nye's also features an inexpensive bar menu.

    I went here with some friends from out of town that had seen it on DDD. It was decent. The staff needs to lighten up a bit. They struggle from the MSP obsession with sterility..must be the MOA influencing everything. It would be so much better in Saint Paul.

    Atmosphere for some reason to me is "1970's meets Russia." I can't explain it, so don't ask. I love the karaoke that goes on there with a live pianist and the polka bar is a riot.

    fun spot to take out of town guests. two bars in one - piano bar on one side and polka bar on the other. You'll see everything from 21 to 81 yr olds all having a good time. stiff drinks and great people watching.

    SIt by the piano and enjoy singing along! Be wary, they make cocktails really strong here!

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. If they made a sequel to Fargo, the first scene would be set here.

    Warble a vodka-soaked version of "Mack the Knife" at the piano bar. Do it.

    Ask Mike the "Piano Man" to share the first song he ever played--a tune his grandmother taught him when he was just five years old.

    Dropsteppers make some reggae jams on monday nights from 8-11. It is a must do.
