First Avenue is still a place a teenager might feel reluctant to let her mother survey before dropping her off for a concert, but its bar-restaurant, the Depot, looks squeaky enough to belong in a suburban shopping mall. The space feels rather cavernous and kind of generic, save for the televisions that display live feeds from both of the stages, and the garage door opening onto the sidewalk, which draws in plenty of light, fresh air, and Twins fans in search of a pit stop. The Depot specializes in bar food with attitude such as thick-cut French fries that arrive with a trio of house-made dipping sauces and a bacon-wrapped hot dog served in a soft pretzel bun. Who thought you'd ever be able to order a Coconut Curry Chopped Salad at a club that's hosted Garbage and the Suicide Commandos?

If you've ever broken up with someone (or been broken up with yourself), you know how awkward it can be to run into that person when you're back out on the market trolling for action. You can try your best to avoid him or her, but if you share similar interests, it's bound to happen eventually. The good news is that even if you're both big music fans, First Avenue is still probably a safe haven, since it's big enough for you to duck and weave through the crowd if you spot your former fling....

Attached to the hip and historic First Avenue & 7th St. Entry, the Depot Tavern is an ideal place to get a pre-game beer and an even better place to get an anytime dog. There's the Stadium Brat, with sauerkraut and whole grain mustard, and the awesomely messy Chili Dog, with cheddar and scallions, but it's the Depot's Diamond Dog that makes it a top hot dog destination. If the Diamond Dog were a musical act, it would be Lady Gaga, dressed to dazzle. The quarter-pound tube steak is... More »
When First Avenue finally opened the garage door on the Depot last June, they added a new title to their list of accolades when it comes to the downtown scene: kick-ass baseball bar. Tucked neatly next door to 7th St. Entry, the Depot offers thirsty Twins fans an ultra-cool, laid-back place to get warmed up before the quick walk to nearby Target Field. With great drink specials, including $3 16-ounce beers from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day, a unique menu with items like Cajun cheese curds... More »
I just went to First Avenue's Depot Tavern and enjoyed the bar food. The bartender who served us was very friendly and knowledgeable! I want to go again when it's still warm to make use of the open garage door.
