You know you've found a good place when the staff and even the owners are their on their days off. Friendliest bar backs in downtown Fargo. Live music at the upstairs venue (the Aquarium) most nights. All around great place.

Dempsey's is a fun place to go, bartenders are great! Food is good and they always have specials. It's our "go to" bar downtown.

Good bar with plenty of beer choice. Music at night at the weekends. Good mix of crowd and staff are quick to serve.
