Valley Creek Apartments residents are just a short drive from all that St. Paul has to offer, including a thriving live music scene. Fans of all genres are in luck with diverse venues and plenty of options when it comes to catching a show. Here are a few places that should be on your radar for a night out of live music in St. Paul!

Turf Club

Turf Club is a staple in the St. Paul music scene and has been around since the 1940s. In the early days, it was a place for country music and two-stepping, but these days it’s better known for being a forerunner on the local rock scene. The venue considers itself the kind of no-frills place where you can catch bands on the rise before they make it big. In addition to the quality shows, music fans praise Turf Club for its intimate feel and friendly bartenders. No doubt, it’s one of the best places for live music in St. Paul!

Minnesota Music Cafe

Minnesota Music Cafe is a venue with a story; its creation and decoration were a labor of love for the owners. Almost everything inside came from other places! The bar is from the old Mirage and the mismatched tables are papered with newspaper classified ads. It all creates a brilliant vibe that is the reason locals consider Minnesota Music Cafe to be one of the best places for live music in the city. On any given night you’ll find a packed dance floor and a killer band on stage.

Palace Theatre

This historic Palace Theatre originally opened in 1916 and sat dormant for many years before the city began a revitalization project in 2015. Many of the original features have been preserved, making it a breathtaking space to enjoy a show. The Palace Theatre brings in top national touring acts with Haim, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Punch Brothers all on the schedule for later this year.
