Ed's 500 Club is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Ed's 500 Club

Blanche's Tavern
(507) 452-9994

Cozy Corner Bar
(507) 457-3319
901 W 5th St

252 E 3rd St
Winona, MN
Swede's Bar - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Swede's Bar is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

Schniepp's Bar
(507) 454-6362
929 E Sanborn St
Winona, MN
Schniepp's Bar, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Schniepp's Bar
