LynLake VFW is the hottest Hidden Secret in Uptown

LynLake VFW: Classic Karaoke Paradise. LOCATED: Uptown/LynLake; 2916 South Lyndale Avenue, Minneapolis - (612) 823-6233. Right next to the Herkimer. Parking and Entry in back.

     Firmly ensconced within the LynLake neighborhood of Uptown, yet only accessible through the back door, the VFW on Lyndale Avenue provides far more than a traditional watering hole for Veterans of Foreign Wars – especially Thursday through Saturday nights when Karaoke holds sway.
     Hosting one of the finest examples of classic bar design, the VFW's bi-level bar features both floor and stool seating, and red-cushioned booths abound in this comfortable, if not eclectic, traditional bar atmosphere. The prices are always right, and perhaps that's the other reason you're likely to find droves of locals-meet-western-suburbanites-meet-University coeds "getting their drink on" as they bellow-out timely ballads – sometimes even in tune! If you're hungry, they offer some of the best bar pizza in town, so come hungry, come thirsty... come often.

You'll leave sated, perhaps stumbling, but surely satisfied!

Get there:
