A favorite hangout for the college crowd (St. Kate’s, Macalaster, and St. Thomas are all within a mile radius), Plum’s usually has a line flowing out the door on Thursdays through Saturdays when school is in session. Things slow down considerably in the summer, though the patio scene attracts its share of summer-schoolers. Saturdays are DJ night, and mainstream rock from various decades is usually the playlist of choice, but local rock bands play there occasionally as well. The décor features plenty of wood, a few booths, and mostly small bar tables. Burgers and sandwiches are available in all the familiar configurations, and the beer and drink selection is adequate to wash it all down, but not much more.
