As most of you know, I LOVE country music. Personally, I am not a huge fan of Toby Keith, but when his new bar opened in St. Louis Park, I had to go check it out. I was there on a Saturday night, and we did have to wait a bit to get in – like 5 minutes, but fortunately the line is in a covered alley so the torrential rain did not ruin my hair. Please note ladies : I do believe I could have gotten in faster if I had worn a shorter skirt and a tighter top, but that just isn’t my style – the bouncer is very biased. Anyway, once you get inside it is pure energy! There is a live band every weekend on Friday and Saturday, and usually not a cover unless it is a well-known star (last weekend was 2/3 of Trick Pony). The beer is served out of a mason jar (yes, like the song), the drinks were affordable ($3.50 for a bottled beer and $3.50 for a mixed drink), the band was great, there are plenty of bathroom stalls so no line, the bartenders were quick, and the crowd was diverse. I danced the night away to my favorite songs, but don’t expect to talk when you are dancing – it is super loud. The only downfall was the creepy guy and the bachelorette parties. If you are into country or just looking for a different scene, definitely check this out!
