Several bars in this complex, one of which is only accessible through the mensroom. The drag show runs from 10pm - 2am and was good with about a 30% gay 70% straight mix, everyone was having a good time.

I enjoy the shows, love the venue setting and the people but some of thepeople that work there or show up are a little too aggressive for me. Just not my scene.

You have to have an open mind going here! All of us were straight in our group! Half our group was uncomfortable watching to drag show so they left but the rest of us had fun. I thought to dancers were very entertaining.

Had my birthday party there, it was amazing! My friends purchase the queen package for me, they did hair, makeup and costume, then I went on the stage with them. Wow! Did I say amazing :)

Loved my experience here! I went with some friends, a couple were gay, but most of us straight and had an absolute blast! We mostly watched the drag show which was incredible! We loved that there were servers coming around for drinks, which was great. The bartenders were friendly, and the dancers were entertaining. I will definitely go back the... More

This is a very cool place! I went with three friends - all of us straight, and had an absolute BLAST! They have different bars within the building, on two levels. There are multiple dance stages, a constant drag show, and lots of fun! I even got to get up on a mechanical penis!

I attended a fundraiser here, which as an advocate for the GLBT community, I was worried about feeling awkward in being in a "gay" bar. The 90's did a wonderful job of helping us to set up, and the bartender even got into the theme of our fundraiser, which was Hee Haw. They allowed us to bring in straw bales,... More

The Gay 90's isn't just a bar. Nightclub also doesn't do it justice. It's a Gay entertainment MECCA! This place is HUGE! There are 6 bars, 3 separate dance floors, a show lounge, a restaurant - all spread across 2 levels in what must be one of the largest bars in Minneapolis! All types of folks go here - Gay,... More

Hennepin and Fourth is convenient to all downtown, Dinkytown and UM campus. Quiet areas and not so quiet. All staff gracious, service excellent. Understand that every night of the week may be different so just call and ask. By the way... always felt safe. That's a good thing. Excellent bar. I did not look for food service. Cab stand active...
