I actually signed in to this thing to undo some misinformation... The Terminal bar is one of the last old school bars in mpls. The reviews are perhaps proper for the folks who reads such things.. However, what a disservice to overlook one of the few genuine places in the city Flem n Annette are gems. The bar is a haven. Go there if u dare. J

I've been here five times, mostly to see bands, but it's a terrible place. It's dingy, and not in the quaint sense, either. The regular crowd is pretty much low-life. They will steal your drink or anything that you leave (coat, gloves, hat, etc.) out while in the bathroom. And the bathroom is a horror that seems to have a perpetual puddle of urine on the floor.

The regulars are bitter, hardened alcoholics. I once saw one vomit on the floor next to his bar stool, and nobody even blinked or moved to clean it up. They just kept serving him.

If you are in a band, watch your equipment carefully here. Better yet, do not book here. Every band that I have seen there has complained about the place, and I don't think that anybody gets paid.

Cash only (no cards accepted). Beer selection is marginal, and the cleanliness of the glasses is questionable. In general, the place is filthy and decaying.

I used to hit this place reeeal early back in the day. Not sure if it's still opens at 8-9 am. . But this is where the terminally alcoholic goes. If you don't like that & aren't mistfully wistful about VFW's, Legion Clubs etc like they have up on Da' Range where old men in trucker hats sip poison aside a confusing mix of younger blond clueless bimbo's ,avoid. But I personally like this "vibe" if you can call it that??

This place uses artists and takes advantage of their patrons, I understand the need to draw people in to run a successful business but these guys are doing it wrong.

If you planning on playing there don't

Artists don't get paid, No drink specials, Place is a ghost town every night. There are plenty of places downtown that are free and actually have an atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks, $6.50 for a 6 oz. jack and coke....... geez

Word of advice to the cokehead who books there..........retire, you suck at your job

But buy all means go if WW2 vets is your crowd

Pros: none

Cons: 1. Not downtown 2.Overpriced drinks 3.Cover charge on a thur

Local talent encouraged to play, walk in crowd is transient to the neighborhood bars so the clientele changes frequently through the night.

Management is friendly, stage is small but adequate for the size of bar.

Booking and staff are friendly and helpful.

Good load in space for bands, lots of opportunity.

The Terminal bar reminds me of being in the middle of a Twin Peaks episode. Seems like a place that would be in the middle of Wisconsin right in Minneapolis. Good drinks, music sometimes, and free popcorn. Hey, they have free popcorn! Nice bartenders and a good place to grab a beer and listen to some tunes!

Pros: I like feeling like I'm in a Twin Peaks episode.

Cons: Sometimes it's too loud to talk during bands if that's what you want to do.

We performed at the Terminal Bar. Atmosphere was great, and it's easy to pack that place wall to wall. Drinks are a little pricey, and they don't take credit cards. For musicians, the stage is tiny, if you have more than 4 people in your band, you're going to be shoulder to shoulder. Easy to look past those pesky negatives, and when you do you'll enjoy coming to this place, having a few drinks and enjoying some local, live music.
