City Pages' Description

Located conveniently just off the Light Rail line and between downtown and the sleepy residential neighborhoods of South Minneapolis, Whiskey Junction is the first of a line of three bars tucked away on a small street where Cedar meets Minnehaha meets Franklin meets Hiawatha meets I-94. The area is often occupied by a mix of bikers and country, rock and blues fans from every walk of life, with Whiskey Junction offering live music most nights of the week - generally a mix of original and tribute bands. Offering a full menu and monthly $3.50 pint specials, Whiskey Junction, still in its original 1886 building, has a long history. First owned by the Grain Belt and Minneapolis Brewing Companies (when it was common practice for breweries to own neighborhood bars that distributed their products), the bar has since passed through only a handful of owners. While in its earliest days the rooms above the bar were rented out to local railroad employees (and, according to rumor, also functioned as a brothel), the bar now is home to notable performers such as Jonny Lang, Lynwood Slim and Big Walter Smith, as well as a full game room.

    USED to be a good place to visit, when there was never a cover and great local and national blues playing most nights. NOT so anymore, prices have gone up, cover to get in and hardly any blues music anymore. Times have changed and so has the ownership. Too bad! But hey the Joint next door and the Caboose are still going strong.
