The long-awaited opening of Gladius, a new LGBT bar in downtown Minneapolis has arrived. The bar opened its doors Friday night and promises a grand opening party later this month.
Gladius bills itself as “finally a gay bar in the Twin Cities with a New York Chic style atmosphere” and joins Tickles and Lush as new arrivals to LGBT nightlife in the Twin Cities, with promises of a newly revamped Brass Rail on the way as well.
Gladius has announced several drink specials in its first few weeks of business: Two-for-one on rail drinks and domestic bottles before 10 pm and Wednesday features $1 off Smirnoff Vodka.
Gladius is located at 1111 Hennepin Ave. S. and is open Monday through Thursday from 4 pm to 2 am, Friday from 3 pm to 2 am, and Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm to 2 am.
More information can be found at the bar’s Facebook page, and look for a review by TheColu.mn in the next few days.
