Turf Club (venue)
The Turf Club is a bar and music venue in Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States. Originally a dance hall in the 1940s, since the 1990s the Turf Club has been popular with Twin Cities bands, a sharp contrast to previous years when most local bands only played Minneapolis venues. The Turf Club was being sold to the owners of First Avenue in late 2013. The venue has a capacity of about 300. Located in the basement of the Turf Club is the Clown Lounge, which is used for jazz gigs. The Turf Club is located on University Avenue near Snelling Avenue and across the street from the Snelling Avenue light rail station on the Green Line.
