Besides being a cornerstone of the Minneapolis music scene (literally, it is at the corner of First Avenue and 7th st) that most medium to large acts have played in the past several decades, this old Greyhound bus depot was owned by Prince for a time, and was featured in the film "Purple Rain" in 1984.

The 7th St. Entry is located in the same building, featuring a great space to watch up-and-coming acts in an intimate space.

The newly opened The Depot Tavern is part of the area. Its menu features the "Diamond Dog", a bacon-wrapped hot dog in a pretzel bun.
