A little of everything
I recently just lived in Minneapolis for one year, and really enjoyed The Saloon while I was living there.
Minneapolis has a huge gay crowd and is very laid back in many ways. The Saloon has a great dance floor, video bar and back bar to talk and relax....basically three bars in one.
It has some great music to dance to, still a little behind the coasts, but that was fine.
Doc is one of the best bartenders in the country, bar-none! He is friendly and remembers anyones drink once he has heard it. The staff is friendly and has some great dancers.
If your visiting the city, it is a must see especially on a Saturday night.
