The nightlife in general can be vibrant in several areas.  The [[Minneapolis/Downtown|Warehouse District]] is great for clubbers, [[Minneapolis/Southeast|Dinkytown]] is good for college party-goers, [[Minneapolis/Southwest|Uptown]] is good for those with a bit more money, and [[Minneapolis/Northeast|Northeast]] is great for dive bar aficionados.  Minneapolis is not the 24 hour city that New York is, but bars close at 2AM so that is still plenty of time, especially if you find a party to go to afterwards.

'''Remember''', as is the case everywhere in the United States, the '''legal drinking age is 21'''. Often to the surprise of foreigners, this law is enforced very heavily (many bars have been shut down for serving alcohol to people under the age of 21). It is common for restaurants, bars, liquor stores, and nightclubs to require photo ID's from anyone appearing under the age of 40, and some establishments have a policy of checking ''everyone's'' ID, regardless of how old they appear. Your ID may not be accepted if it is not in English, so a foreign identification card or driver's license may not suffice. While a Canadian driver's license may be accepted, foreigners would be well-advised to carry their passport if they want to purchase alcohol or be admitted into nightclubs.

Minneapolis certainly accommodates those seeking a good drink, a tendency which certainly complements the alcohol culture endemic to the Upper Midwest.  There are over a dozen Irish, German, or British pubs, such as '''The Local''', '''Black Forest Inn''', '''Brit's Pub''', '''Gastoff's''', '''O'Donovan's''' or '''Kieran's'''.  Local dining, clubs, pubs, and bars in general compete for the best Happy Hour specials.  It's a good idea to pick up a '''City Pages''' or to do an internet search to find the best deals. Thrifty Hipster is a great website to use. It lists every bar and restaurant in  Minneapolis and breaks them down by neighborhood and provides the locations, a description, and Happy Hour specials.
