Mark your calendars and brush up on your random trivia knowledge. Twin Cities restaurants, bars and breweries host trivia nights every day of the week, and these are our No. 1 choices for every night of the week. Grab your friends (especially the smart ones) and head out for an evening of brain-powered fun.
7th Street Social
Head to this St. Paul restaurant to exercise your brain muscles with Trivia Mafia, one of the largest and most popular bar trivia groups in the Midwest. Enjoy happy hour pricing on craft beer, cocktails and appetizers (we’re talking $5 homemade Reuben bites, beer cheese fries and more).
Trivia Mafia is at it again at this craft beer bar—one of the Top 100 Beer Bars in the country three years running—located a few minutes from downtown Minneapolis. With just about every beer you could ever wish for on tap, there is also a dinner menu that goes well beyond the typical pub fare. Play for prizes, gift cards and (most importantly) bragging rights.
Fair State Brewing Coop
This member-owned craft brewery in Northeast Minneapolis hosts several rounds of trivia every Wednesday night in its cozy taproom. Challenge your memory on one-hit wonders, obscure politicians from the 1970s and more. And don’t forget to bring food from one of the neighboring restaurants–we recommend El Taco Riendo located just a few doors down the street.
New Bohemia Wurst + BierHaus
A little bit of Germany right in Northeast Minneapolis and Uptown. Choose from a variety of gourmet sausages like chicken and apple and Cajun andouille, or get adventurous with the rattlesnake rabbit jalapeno. Pair it with a pint of craft beer and you have the makings for a fun evening of trivia.
Adagio’s Pizza Factory
Sure, it’s a bit of a drive, but this trivia night is well worth a few extra minutes in the car. Adagio’s has long been a local favorite among residents of the northern suburb of New Brighton. Enjoy a slice while you test your knowledge at their bar trivia.
A staple of the Twin Cities’ dining scene, Keys at Foshay Tower in downtown Minneapolis hosts Trivia Mafia every Saturday. While you play, order the Trivia Carnitas Street Tacos for less than $8 and pair with a delicious drink.
The Herkimer Pub and Brewery
This Uptown joint hosts trivia on Sunday evenings. If winning food, drinks and gift cards isn’t enough to get you through the front door, consider the trivia drink specials: $5 Jameson, $7 BFF (beer and a shot) and more.
