We grabbed tickets to see Teenage Fanclub while visiting Minneapolis/St. Paul. I was surprised how intimate it was. A small floor and a 2nd floor balcony with bars in both floors. Table were available on the 2nd floor over looking the stage but those had to be reserved ahead of time. The acoustics were off and pitchy, I don't know... More

I had been to the Fine Line a couple of times 'back in the day' and was very excited when we decided to book this for our company's Holiday party. Wendy is the event organizer with the Fine Line (and other venues) and she was amazing to work with! She took our wish list and budget and helped us create... More

Saw 3 bands there, perfect table seating upstairs, wait staff was awesome, the venue was small and intimate, so the music wa risp and clear! You also can smoke and bring bev's outside, fenced in area. Drinks were a little pricey for what you get..but oh well!

we saw Byrne and Kelly at the fine line last night and it was wonderful. The place was very nice and intimate. Great seats on the main floor except for a couple that were by pillars. We chose to walk upstairs and sit at the balcony which was great. We could look down and see the whole stage plus you... More

Stopped here for a few drinks and some lunch before the Twins game. Wait staff was very friendly and place had a cool feel to it. The party we were with all enjoyed a sandwich, kettle chips, and specialty drinks. We also shared the spinach dip for an appetizer-must try. Definate stop again.

Went to see Richard Marx perform. He was there for just 30 minutes, but it was a great environment. Very intimate setting. The only drawback was that there are limited seating upstairs and downstairs so go early to get a table if you plan to order food. Bar service was fast. They had appetizers, but we didn't order any. I'd... More

We saw Gossip at The Fine Line in October. Gossip is awesome and Beth Ditto does a fantastic job engaging the audience! Someone on the floor was calling a friend on her cell phone, and Beth Ditto left a voice mail message! So cool. The Fine Line could use MANY more chairs. We were on the upper level near the...
