Welcome to The Half Time Rec! Going strong for decades, we've been one of the most popular places in the Twin Cities to celebrate St. Patrick's Day each year. We are also well known for being the bar in the movie Grumpy Old Men, as well as our bocce ball tracks in the basement. Recently named Best Dive Bar by MSP Mag, we offer bocce ball, pool, bean bags, and Golden Tee. Enjoy live bands every Fri and Sat, and a fun, comfortable vibe every day.
