PHOTOS: Leslie Vincent at the Troubadour Wine Bar

Uptown Minneapolis is gentrifying like crazy, but it still has a few comfortable, cozy spots to enjoy wine and music that won’t make your ears bleed. One of these is the Troubadour Wine Bar, a spot tucked a little ways up Hennepin from the Great Lake Street Parking Snarl. Wander in on Monday evenings and you can enjoy Troubadour’s Cab Cabernet live music cabaret series. Wander in on the last Monday of the month and you can catch singer-actress Leslie Vincent singing during her monthly residency at Troubadour.

Make that most last Mondays – next Monday is the Ivey Awards, the local theatre scene’s annual awards ceremony and “theatre prom”, so Vincent’s night of songs came this week. Here’s a look at the themed program Cab Cabaret: Those Hot Summer Nights, which featured songs by Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, and more.
