The Record Room
Minneapolis, MN 55403
City Pages' Description
This dance-party alcove of First Avenue used to be called the VIP Lounge, but that name never quite fit. That's because the shows that take place in what is now called the Record Room are a lot more democratic, freewheeling and affordable than the "strict and fashionable dress code enforced" velvet-rope ramparts scattered across downtown Minneapolis. Recurring DJ nights abound, from deep drum'n'bass events to get-wild hip hop sets. If your idea of seeing and being seen involves unpretentious style and the chance to listen to music that goes deeper than Top 40, this is your late-night destination.
