Opinion offers the Newest Band Venue around!

We took the 1950’s Bowling Alley and turned it to a band venue.  We kept a portion of the bowling lanes and created a stage and upper level seating.  We also left the Red Rock Lanes back drop, pin setters, and approach to preserve the historic ambiance.

Opinion has the coolest band venue around. Not to mention FREE RIDES HOME for you and your car, FREE RIDES to Opinion, best drink prices around, and no cover charge before 8:00pm (unless special event) or to have a few beers up at the bar. Call Last Call Car Service to arrange a ride 612.789.2222.
