The Turf Club has a big wide open area so wherever you sit you're able to see the band that it playing. The stage is nice and high and there's a small dance floor in front of it.

Had a good time there seeing some bands on a Sat. night, but my night was spoiled by one of the bartenders. This guy has to be psychotic. He was 86'ing people like it was his private little game. Seriously. Do not attempt to joke around with this loose-nut. For reference, he is a slovenly looking guy with scraggly graying hair and a beard and was seen wearing a trucker cap. If anyone in management is reading this, you ought to 86 this guy from your place. You patrons will have a much better time and you will likely see more repeat business.

Besides that whack-job the place is pretty cool.

Pros: ample seating at the bar, stiff drinks

Cons: Cost of drinks is average, should be less for a low-brow place like this

.

so, the Turf Club isn't all that great. But lets stop and think about why you go to a bar...Sometimes they have good bands, they serve you drinks, and cool kids hang out there. Nobody likes University, but stop by and have a drink.

While it no longer houses the St. Paul Music Club, the Turf has a great stage, a ton of seating, and reasonable prices. Shows are usually $5 to $10 and typically feature local or indie acts. Also, when you're tired of the show you can check out the Clown Lounge in the basement. Ther's always plenty of parking behind the bar on side streets.

PROS: Great atmosphere, cheap beer, good shows
CONS: really, really smokey.

I love the atmosphere at the Turf Club, particularly the dim and gritty (dim-gritty) atmosphere in the subterranean Clown Lounge. The bartenders serve delightfully strong mixed drinks, which I like to call facemakers.

I have only one criticism: I realize the Turf Club is a music club above all else. Alas, the music upstairs is sometimes painstakingly loud, which is only a problem on nights the Clown Lounge is not open, those unfortunately being off-nights when the band is not particularly compelling.

Pros: Facemakers, Clown Lounge, Mood

Cons: Eardrum breakers

This bar is easily the best in town. So not be surprised to see Celebrities in the Clown Lounge.
