3. The Library Bar 1301 4th St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414 (Dinkytown)

The Library’s been revamped, but the beer specials are just the same as you remember from college. Watch whatever game's playing on one of their many flatscreens or grab some eats from the bar.

5. Uncle Buck's 25 N. 5th St, Minneapolis, MN 55401 (Downtown)

Uncle Buck's Kick Ass Party Bar, filled with stripper poles and a "shot chair" (basically a big barber chair where they pour booze down your defenseless gullet), is sure to make your night one you'll remember. Or, maybe not. Definitely not.

6. Stella's Fish Cafe & Prestige Oyster Bar 1400 West Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55408 (Uptown)

With drink specials galore, the patio that launched a thousand Uptown patios, and throngs of just-graduated coeds coming for both, there are dozens of reasons to go to Stella’s, not least of all their Oyster Orgy Happy Hour.

7. Williams Uptown Pub & Peanut Bar 2911 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408 (Uptown)

With 80 drafts and 300 bottles, the guys at Williams have been repping beer bars since when “craft beer” was still just a way brewers would describe what they did for a living. Add to that a selection of bar-side peanuts, and you'll have no legitimate reasons to leave.
