      Camp - the Gay bar - is Gone!
      Camp is now a Hunting Camp themed bar. Dead critters on the walls. Plywood and galvanized steel roofing panels adds zero to the lacking atmosphere. Do not bother!

      Best gay bar in the twin cities.
      If you're visiting the twin cities for nightlife, there isn't much in Saint Paul, but Camp is THE reason to travel east of the river. Free streetside parking during most hours isn't a challenge and there are several nearby ramps with affordable nighttime rates. Several bus routes also border Camp. Camp opened in 2007 and has a courteous staff in a two-room arrangement with a small dancefloor in the back as well as a main bar with LCD monitors displaying video to match the music played by DJs. Cabaret-style theatre entertainment events occur regularly and can be found on their website. Signature cocktails will run about $7 each and are made with high quality ingredients--often hand-muddled fresh fruits and lines aren't long to get drinks. Bottled and tap beer choices are limited but quite reasonably priced. Small couch sitting area for conversation as well as a few high tables in the main bar for small parties. Billiards and a few video games in the back bar and a "VIP lounge" in the rear back bar are often available. Mixed crowd--roughly 75% men and ages vary from mid twenties and upwards (mostly 30's). A great place to be a regular or simply visit and truly well done decor--you'll be quite amazed at how clean the bar is kept too and I've yet to suffer being served in a plastic cup! A few of my favorite bartenders have left but the management and owners continue to find talented mixologists to offer hospitable service with an attractive smile.

      A bit of everything
      This is a friendly neighborhood bar during the week and there are daily happy hours/specials. It's more of a 30-40something crowd than 20's. Weekend evenings they have small plays/shows in half of the bar and have transitioned away from regularly having dance music. They have videos in the main bar but this is mostly a place to talk and be sociable--it's as close to Cheers as you'll find. The bartenders make it a point to learn your name if you show up more than a couple times.

      The Twin Cities Finest!
      THE nicest looking nightclub in the twin cities. Great staff. Fun crowd. The place to be in St. Paul.

      Upscale, not intimidating
      What a nice bar! It seems so upscale. But I was there on a fairly quiet weeknight...even so, I liked Camp a lot. People were friendly, drinks were good. The room is really attractive.

    • Fun Times!
      I work downtown St. Paul so I stop there for happy hour during the week, but never had been there on the weekend. Got a chance to check it out last weekend and it lived up to all the hype.
