    A Palace for Pretty & Pretentious People (and weak drinks)
    I've lived in this city my entire life, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've gone here. My experiences here have always been rotten. Most of the bartenders are rude and will ignore you if you're not a friend of theirs, regardless if it's busy or not. On two occasions, I've been called the 'n-word' by bartenders here (the incidents were 6 years apart and involved a different bartender each time). The drinks are either weak as hell or poured poorly (stick with beer). Also, keep an eye on your drink. The only time in my life I've been roofied happened here. The crowd skews young, male, and white - think 'Clones.' Other than a Latino night on Tuesdays, diversity is NOT something this bar knows much about. The only positive things I can say: There's generally no cover charge (unless there's a special event or you're under 21), the food is decent, and the security staff are very friendly. If you like the idea of standing and posing with pretty people while sipping on weak drinks, then this is your bar. Otherwise, ANY of the other bars in Minneapolis are a better bet.
