The Quest

The Quest is a venue located in downtown Minneapolis. It is typically the host of larger shows of all genres. There is a parking ramp directly across the street so you donít have to walk far. Once inside the only security checks are a metal detector and an ID check. This is especially nice, as nobody likes to be felt up by a burly bouncer. Inside the venue is really cool. I would say it resembles a large castle dungeon of some sort. There are bars on both sides of the stage and a large amount of room in between. At The Quest there is also an upstairs that provides a different view of the show. The only thing that I dislike about the Quest is their contract with the artists. They require the performers to sign a contract that only allows them to perform at The Quest. This is a huge disadvantage when trying to set up a show and invite artists, and because of that many local artists donít perform at The Quest.
