Turf Club

Map & Directions 1601 University Ave. W.
St. Paul, MN 55104


City Pages' Description

Few bars in St. Paul can boast the kind of bang-per-buck ratio as the Turf, where a twenty will get you in to see a three or four-band set -- usually featuring notable local and national indie-rock acts -- and enough drinks to last you pretty much all night. Upstairs features a classic, unpretentious '40s-vintage bar atmosphere, while the Clown Lounge downstairs hosts weekly jazz nights.

    All I got to say is the Clown Lounge. If your scared of clowns stay up stairs.

    This place is cool for a show. They have a colorful atmosphere with a photobooth and a second bar downstairs in what used to be called the clown lounge due to its attire. Now its more like a up north cabin.

    Best place to see First Communion Afterparty, you never know when they will get up on stage and sing with the Von Bondies Check out the Clown Lounge if the music sucks upstairs!
