While it's a café/coffee bar by day, Excelsior's 318 is a lively music venue and wine bar by night. Local and national artists play music in the intimate 54-seat setting every Wednesday through Saturday, and a notable happy hour brings in an early crowd from 3 to 5 p.m. Every Thursday is Girls Night Out from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. In short, if you're searching for a cozy spot outside the Cities, with consistently great made-from-scratch food, a good wine selection, and top musicians, 318 is your answer.
