Owner description: "A great, up-scale, night-spot in downtown Saint Paul. Live music most nights, Dancing on weekends. "One of the 10 best Twin Cities' Hot Spots!" - Pioneer Press Camp Bar Twin Cities opened in June of 2007 and quickly became a Downtown Saint Paul landmark. The 5000 sq ft facility contains three separate spaces for customers; the upscale yet casual Front Bar, the lively Dance Bar/Cabaret and, weather allowing, our sidewalk patio. The front bar features a large u-shaped bar, flat screen televisions, a baby grand piano and our Entryway Lounge. Any part of the bar or the entire facility is available for private events.All of our cocktails are hand-built using fresh, quality ingredients and muddle and shake methods. We pride ourselves on serving the biggest drinks in town.

The Buddy Holly Show couldn't have been better. Great talent and such a fun time. Enjoyed singing along with all my favorite Buddy Holly tunes. The singer not only looked like Buddy Holly, but sounded just like him, too. The band sounded so good, too and one of the guitar players was extremely talented. Hope they come back again. We'd...

This venue has become a downtown Saint Paul destination for good drinks and a nice sidewalk patio. The crowd tends to be an ecelectic mix, young/old, male/felame/ gay/straight, dressed-up/casual... They do a fun mix of live cabaret and professiobal theater. Check the webpage to see what is playing. Shows might be a bit pricey but the quality is always excellent.

Camp classifies itself as a gay bar, and while Uranians are welcome, so is everyone else. Easy parking, low-key atmosphere and affordable librations. The additional treat is the adjoining Cabaret Theater. This venue is small enough to feel intimate, yet the performances are as polished and professional as larger, much more expensive stages. The drinks are potent, the service is... More

We attended The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare. It was a well performed and really funny fast paced comedic synopsis of most things Shakespearian. The venue is intimate. The main floor seats are almost all good. The mezzenaine.. not so much. The drinks are all well made and fairly reasonable. It is located beside a gay bar with entry through... More

I know Camp is a gay bar, and I love to flirt, so I was a little worried how I'd enjoy my time there. But the drinks were good (but alas, no Prosecco), the decor is edgy fun, and the female jazz vocalists in the "back room" were absolutely fabulous. I especially loved Rhonda Laurie, and would go back just... More

One of my favorite bars. Really nice atmosphere since the remodeling, friendly staff and good drinks (not the strongest in town but good nonetheless). Parking is easy too.
