Turf Club

Since 1945

The Turf Club is a historic landmark in the Midway neighborhood of St. Paul, MN. Originally opened as a supper club and dancehall in the 1940s, the room has seen it all, from two-steppin’ to grunge, and everything in between.

The Turf Club features live music nearly every night of the week, and its charm lies in the fact that it is both a neighborhood hang and a destination for some of the best touring artists in the country. Located between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul, this 350-cap venue boasts a stage and bar upstairs and a cozy basement bar and stage in the Clown Lounge.

The Turf Club’s kitchen offers food service during shows, available starting as soon as doors are open for events. Click here to see the current menu (PDF).

The venue is owned and operated by First Avenue, and its commitment to independent and local music remains truer now than ever.
