4. Bar Louie

1348 Lagoon Av.,

Opened: 2012

Prime time: 10 p.m. to close

What to order: Badger Hill Minnesota Special Bitter

Atmosphere: This posh pub puts a casual spin on Miami chic. There are beer choices aplenty and an attractive (but bro-ish) crowd at one of Uptown’s hottest new hangouts.

5. Bar Abilene

1300 Lagoon Av.,

Opened: 1998

Prime time: midnight to close

What to order: Tequila shots

Atmosphere: The Tex-Mex danceteria, with its windows-onto-the-street dance floor, is one of Uptown’s few places for hip-shaking. A strong late-night crowd turns Abilene from sleepy to steamy.

6. Chino Latino

2916 Hennepin Av. S.,

Opened: 2000

Prime time: 6:30-10:30 p.m.

– samurai headband included)

Atmosphere: This attitudinal fusion joint packs enough pizazz for trendy suburbanites. It’s the locale of choice for large dinner parties to springboard their night out with clanking sake bombs.
