Our guide to Minneapolis' gay scene.
Minneapolis has a surprisingly good gay scene centred around several gay bars and gay clubs. It’s a major city with an impressive cultural scene. Famously, Prince lived and worked in his Minneapolis estate, Paisley Park. He said he stayed in Minneapolis because it’s so cold it keeps the bad people away.
The coldest month in Minneapolis is January. Blizzards can also bring impressive depths of snow over winter. Minneapolis is a fun city to explore. If it was good enough for Prince it’s good enough for you.
