On December 5, the new Club Metro debuts in nearby Somerset, Wisconsin—after an eight-year hiatus—with opening night featuring a unique drag performance hosted by Show Director Donna Dior. The former incarnation of the bar at 733 Pierce Butler Route, St. Paul, opened in April 1992, and closed November 3, 2001.
James Hanson, General Manager of the new Club Metro, says, “Always a favorite with a wide spectrum of the GLBT community, Club Metro was one of the most popular bars in the 1990s. We’re bringing it back in a large new space that will remind patrons of the old Club Metro. Somerset is only a short distance from the Twin Cities, and just a few minutes from Stillwater. We’ll make it worth the brief drive for everyone, with great entertainment like casino gambling, DJ dancing, drag shows, male dancers, and more.”
Club Metro, on Main Street between SA and Holiday in Somerset, will be open Friday-Saturday, 4 PM-2:30 AM; and Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, 4 PM-2 AM. Smoking is permitted inside the bar. Tasty food is served. If you want to stay the night, the Somerset Motel is close by the bar.
To get to Club Metro, take Minnesota Highway 36 to Stillwater, cross the St. Croix bridge Downtown, and continue on Wisconsin Highway 64 to Somerset.
Make plans now for New Year’s Eve, when Club Metro will be open all night, which Wisconsin law allows. Enjoy free champagne and hors d’oeuvres at Midnight.
