    Depends on what you're up for. There are some decent nightclubs in the area- I've been to the Gay 90s a few times, and although it is kinda trashy and infested with straight people, I still like to go there. I also heard good things about Jetset and The Saloon, but I haven't gone myself. Also, the Mall of America is there and it's very popular with tourists, since it's one of the biggest malls in North America (and just a quick light rail ride away). Also, the music scene and theatre scene are excellent. The Guthrie put us on the map, but tickets can be pretty pricey. On the flip side, the University of Minnesota puts on shows also- and these actors work with the Guthrie. Events can be found here: https://theatre.umn.edu/events Also, the Old Spaghetti Factory nearby on Park and Washington is a very nice place, or if you want to go to someplace more iconic, cross over to St. Paul to eat at Mickey's Diner on 7th Street in Downtown.

    I hope that helps. I grew up around the Minneapolis area, and there can be something to do, but sometimes there isn't.

    Thanks!!! I'm up for anything, thanks for the info about theaters and plays that sounds kind of nice way to spend an evening. The Mall Of America is definitely a no miss!!! (I really will de some shopping either there or could yo recommend me some good oulets in the area??)

    In terms of nightlife, I'm a party boy but because of my age (19) the US policies might get me to spend the whole trip sober hahaha, although I might go to the Saloon I heard that sometimes they have 18+ events!! (have you heard of any other places like that??)

    Thanks again!!

    The Gay 90s is 18+ on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays and every 3rd weekend of the month. However, it's mostly full of straight guys, fag hags, creepers and college kids. Hell- an older lady tried to get me for a rebound (I don't play rebound or homewrecker) Also, Jetset is 18+ on Fridays. Saturday nights, I don't know of any gay bars/clubs that are open, but I know that Valentino's in South St. Paul, MN is 16+ on most Saturday nights. Also, if you like arcades, there is a venue called Dave and Buster's in Maple Grove, MN, which is a suburb of Minneapolis.

    Saloon is 18+ on Thursdays and Sundays. It's a bigger cover if you're under 21 but the Saloon is the best gay bar in Minneap. Saint Paul has some but that's always a longer drive, especially if you've been drinking. The 90's is not my style but it works for some people....
