7. Primebar [Editor's note: Primebar management announced on March 25 that it was closing its Uptown location.]

3001 Hennepin Av. S., www.primebarminneapolis.com

Opened: 2012

Prime time: 8 p.m. to midnight

What to order: Lift Bridge Hop Dish

Atmosphere: This modern sports bar in the space forever to be known as ‘‘the former Figlio” boasts more than 50 taps and a slew of “SportsCenter”-tuned TVs. The music is kept at a conversational volume — something its mature-by-comparison crowd probably appreciates.

8. Republic

3001 Hennepin Av. S., www.republicmn.com

Opened: 2012

Prime time: 7 p.m. to midnight

What to order: $3 beer of the day

Atmosphere: Uptown’s beer-bar-to-beat, in a dimly lit second-floor space that formerly housed the Independent, offers ample seating and zero fist-pumping. That, and a very good burger.

9. Uptown Cafeteria

3001 Hennepin Av. S., www.uptowncafeteria.com

Opened: 2010

Prime time: 5-11 p.m.

What to order: Totchos (tater-tot nachos) ($5 during happy hour)

Atmosphere: Like rooftop rival Stella’s, this souped-up diner’s patio is the main post-dinner attraction. Still, the frisky mess hall attracts a mixed crowd year-round.
