The Halftime Rec

The Halftime Rec
Old-timers will tell you that the Halftime Rec, once the bar for live Irish music in the Twin Cities, lost some of its soul when it converted its back music room to a country-western theme. Others—namely those who like country music, blues, and bluegrass—will tell you the scene has never been better. The Rec still has its famous bocce ball courts downstairs, and weekend nights are standing-room only drinkfests with plenty of dancing. For nostalgia’s sake, the Rec does still book the occasional Irish band, and there’s Guinness on tap every night for anyone who wants to cry in their beer.
