The 400 Bar

400 Cedar Ave. S., Mpls. 612) 332-2903

Located just a stone’s throw from the U, the 400 Bar provides live music seven nights a week from local and touring indie bands. Pictures and newspaper clippings of R.E.M., Soul Asylum and the Replacements in their younger years adorn the walls next to an intimate stage setting. While most shows are 21+, the 400 does occasionally accommodate the ID-less masses with all-ages shows. And here’s an interesting fact with which you can impress your friends: Former Replacements manager, Bill Sullivan, manages this red-bricked Minneapolis music institution.
