What the community has to say about 7th Street Entry

Information about this business (3)

This joint rules the Twin City music scene. As a converted bus depot, the large two-story room offers excellent acoustics and sight lines. If live music is on the agenda, get there early and grab a table in the balcony or you will stand all night. The music runs the gamut from reggae to punk to rock to country. If a local or national act is not scheduled to play, a DJ takes over and gets the...

This club is the Twin Cities' most diverse music room, and features live music from nationally known performers, as well as award winning dance nights.

; The club known AS first avenue was born in 1970. But the history of live music in the distinctively curved black building on the corner of first avenue and seventh street in minneapolis. Minn. . Rightfully begins much earlier. It was on a february friday in 1937 that the orchestral music of the gopher melody MEN played. Ribbons were CUT and the NEW NORTHLAND-GREYHOUND BUS depot opened for...

This small, somewhat grimy venue is essentially a more intimate annex of the legendary First Avenue. Less seasoned (or less famous) bands who aren’t quite ready for the adjacent Mainroom can be...

Prince made it famous in ""Purple Rain,"" but the diverse calendar is what this club is known for.

In Short
First Avenue, a slightly grubby, two-story room with a black-on-black color scheme is one of the most popular clubs in town. The crowd is an eye-catching mix of fashion freaks,...

Business description (7) view all

A converted 1930s bus depot, this two-part club is a premier music spot in the Twin Cities. First Avenue attracts both national and regional acts, and depending on the night, you can catch a Jamaican reggae group, Texas rockers, a Seattle grunge band, or a high-life act from Nigeria. DJs play recorded music, mostly progressive and alternative, for nightly dancing. The tiny Seventh Street entry...

The godfather of the Twin Cities club scene—First Avenue and its adjoining smaller club space the 7th St. Entry have been immortalized in song by countless artists and on celluloid by Prince in his 1984 blockbuster "Purple Rain". The club lives up to its legend by having rock ‘n’ roll priced domestic taps (a.k.a. “cheap”) and a distinctly authentic, gritty vibe—oh yeah, they also book the best...

Tips about this business (3) view all

This small, somewhat grimy venue is essentially a more intimate annex of the legendary First Avenue. Less seasoned (or less famous) bands who aren’t quite ready for the adjacent Mainroom can be found here most nights, and the cover charge tends to be downsized accordingly. While it’s easy to characterize the Entry as an inferior stepchild to its big-daddy destination next door, the sound and sightlines are actually quite good Even high-profile locals who could fill bigger rooms are known to book a gig here now and then, if only to keep their indie/punk credibility intact. Note: The close...

The Extras

For a quick cram session on First Avenue and 7th Street Entry history, take a few minutes to survey the iconic stars painted on the club's outside wall, recalling scores of legendary artists who've played here over the years.
