Too legit to quit! Hey Hey! – I have been visiting this place for over 7 years. Born and raised in St. Paul, I of course feel at home here. It's a fun place, with an awesome patio. I choose Alary's when I am in St. Paul!
Great place to go before an Xcel Center event. – My brother and I recently went to Alarys before and after a Wild game. I got the tickets and his job was to find someplace fun to go before. He stumbled upon alarys bar on barseenlive's web site. What an awesome place to go before a game. They have over 30 different beers on tap. Every direction you look there are flat screens tuned to whatever games are on. The scantily clad wait staff do an awesome job, very attentive. The walls are adorned with local law enforcement and fire officials memorabilia. They have 4 shuttles to and from the Xcel for events and there is a parking ramp right next door. If you are going to an Xcel event this is a great place to start and end your evening.
Without a doubt a local favorite – Former Chicago Bear Al Baisi really built a local favorite with this establishment. The Chicago Bear games during the football season are something else to witness. The fan support in the Twin Cities is great. Alary's is, I believe, the safest bar in St. Paul. Not only home to Chicago Bear fans but to the local Police Officers and Firefighters. Alary's is a must attend party before any event at the XCel Center with reasonably priced drinks, free shuttle to and from the XCel with a ticket and a friendly atmosphere. It is a relaxed, blue collar place that will put a smile on the face of any weary traveler. The current owner "Big" Al is a great host and warms the coldest winter nights with his smile of genorosity when in the cozy confines of Alary's. And don't forget the old school bubble hockey. Now how can you go wrong in a place with that machine at your disposal? It is a must visit to anyone from the area or just visiting. If you are an out of state Police Officer, there is a special place for you at Alary's as well. Stop on by and say "HI".
Worst service ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Ok, here's story. I went to Alary's with a joined bachelorette and bachelor party. We were on a party bus together. I went to the bar to grab a round of drinks for 6ppl.well the snotty, "thought they were working at "The restuarnt with the HOT waitress, ya know, the ones with the big chests and hot orange shorts on" but were not hot enough to get a job there", bartenders kept walking by and ignoring me and one of my girlfriends. Whats funny is after i gave up trying to get their attention, I gave my money to my boyfriend so I could use the bathroom. I said, "Here, you try getting some beers"! Well i went to the bathroom and had to stand in line. I didnt even get to go when he came walking up to me with my beer. How annoying! Guess what trashy bartenders?! Ladies pay for drinks too, and we tip better than the men do! So I would have to say, if your with your boyfriend or husband, expect to be ignored. And i you want a drink, give them the money, thats the only way your gonna get one!
Transplants from the Windy City and geographically-challeneged Chicago Bears fans flock to this downtown hangout. – In Short
Catch the monsters of the Midway. Located in an old paint store, Alary's charm is as pleasing as its food and service. For fans of 'da Bears' it's the best place to get a true sense of Chicago football.
Fun place to meet people...great drink prices – Super fun place! Real cheep drink prices. Good looking guys & girls hang out there. A mix of everyone. I've met Teachers, Vikings Players, Senators, Cops, Wild Players...just about every walk of life. Gets busy...especially on Wild game nights. Free in door parking after 4pm right next door. Always a good time in a good part of town. Oh yeah, FREE rides to the Excel on Wild Game nights!!!! P.S. The owner is a super nice guy too!
Best Chicago Bears Experience for Twin Cities! – This bar is the ULTIMATE sanctuary for the Bear Fan Faithful. It will warm you and make you feel (if only for a short time) like you are back in Chicago. The staff are friendly, BAY-U-TI-FULL and eye-catching. If you have an affinity for the Monsters of the Midway, this is YOUR bar!
Best drink in town – Wide assortment of inexpensive domestic beers; great pizza and Super Chexx bubble-hockey.
Free parking after 4pm with great happy hour prices.
Best part: Bartenders are friendly and absolutely gorgeous!
Worth the trip – If you are going to an event at the Excel you should go here. It is not as close as the other places but the drinks are much cheaper without it being a dive. For hockey games they offer a free shuttle back forth to the game. I believe they even offer free parking (Saw a sign but was staying the night at the Holiday Inn so I did not need to park) Another good point is there is a good crowd there but not so packed that it is a battle to get a beer.
