Best Bars Minneapolis | Minneapolis Live Music Venues | Bunkers Music


The Minneapolis Warehouse District, now known as the North Loop, might have changed a bit in the last decade or so, but one thing never has: since 1976, Bunker’s has maintained its hard-earned reputation as the strongest music bar in town. A pioneer and pillar of the Minneapolis music scene, Bunker’s proudly calls Washington Avenue home.

Decades of music history have been made on Bunker’s celebrated stage. Prince’s regular drop-in jam-sessions remain unforgettable. Today, a number of local legends like The International Reggae All-Stars, Alex Rossi, Frogleg, and funky R&B specialists Dr. Mambo’s Combo put on incredible live shows, seven days a week.

Bunker’s may feel like a working-class, shot-and-a-beer joint, but don’t let that fool you—Bunker’s home-cooked lunches are legends in their own right! Don’t miss out our Blue Plate Specials, every Monday through Friday.
