Trying to be something it's not

There are cities in which a club such as Escape belongs--New York, London, Paris. Unfortunately, Minneapolis is not one of those cities. In an effort to act like a club that belongs in a swankier city, Escape just becomes a parody of itself. The clientele are laughable, and the staff and management take themselves far too seriously. \r
To enjoy a slice of genuine Minneapolis nightlife, head to the Block E ba

Good Thursdays

I hear the weekends are pretty dead, so head there Thursday if you like a good crowd and very, very inexpensive cover (FREE) and drinks ($1 wells). Love the hip-hop beats, and should I mention again, super cheap drinks? If you don't like a mixed crowd (all race/ethnicity), then go somewhere else, but if you don't care and just wanna have a good time, Escape is the place for Thursday nights.

We were NOT impressed!

We were not impressed! Staff was rude and not helpful in any way! We came to have fun and spend some money, but by the service we received I don't think they wanted us there or our money. Bathrooms were filthy, music was boring and the dance floor was sticky with broken glass in every area. Most ""upscale"" nightclubs that I've been to don't allow people on the dance floor with drinks.\r
Never will visit again!!

High End

I always enjoyed going to Escape, but when I tried to reserve a VIP section I ran into problems over and over again. I was told a different price and policy each time I called. I was offered a deal after I explained my situation to the management. The VIP section in the bar is the only place one can really function on a Friday night without feeling like they don't have room to breathe. But, the music is great.

worse birthday VIP ever

made reservation for VIP 1mth in advance for my big day at this place. I was very excited at how they sold it to me over the phone. I mean the price was steep but what they promised made up for it. Bottom line when I got there my party section was not reserved or decorated as promised. In fact they couldn't even remember that I had one reserved even though I called the night before to confirm it. Okay everything was ... view more

Wonderful environment, weak music

While visiting Minneapolis this establishment was recommended by a DJ friend. The environment was great but smaller than we expected. Some of the specials advertised on their web page were not offered the night we visited. However, the cover was less than we expected. The bartenders and waitresses were fabulous, very friendly and helpful. However, what proved to be the biggest dissapointment was the music. The ... view more

Not my favorite.

I don't like being a snob but I paid the steep cover to get in and hated the clientele. Space was alright but...I felt like I had left Minneapolis and was in Asia somewhere. Went into VIP which was definitely better. Much better people and a great female bartender. My plastic was at home. Had my visa checkcard; which they don't take. Alright time if you want to spend One Night in Bangkok.

1st night exploring downtown

Bouncer at 1st Ave told me to check out Escape, it was very intense and noticed a heavy amount of fine Asian girls. A lot of people on ""E."" Made it more interesting. Don't have to be young, but you must be trendy, and there is a mild dress code, jus dont look like a bum.

Cool club

I really liked it. Beautiful people, beautiful bar, beautiful servers. The dancers on the glass platforms really gave it the added glam most places are lacking these days. I felt safe and comfortable even though it was extremely busy. A bottle of water (small) cost $4.00. I didn't even want to ask how much a cocktail cost! Other than that it was a really great time!

Stopped by on a lark and discovered that Timo Maas was DJing. Read elsewhere that Miguel Migs has DJ'd. These are two of the top ten DJs on the planet, so if this is a trend, it's very positive. A woman grabbed me to dance, so that was nice. Better dance floor than the Lounge; comparable clientele. Still pumping with a good mix of people from it's newness; we'll see how it goes if the area's attitudinally impaired lo... view more
