A former steak house turned music venue, Jay's Longhorn Bar (or more simply, the Longhorn) was one of the gravitational centers of the punk/hardcore scene. A long bar with low ceilings and a stage at the end, the Longhorn saw numerous legendary acts perform there, including Hüsker Dü, the Replacements, the Suicide Commandos, the Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads, the Police (on their first US tour) and many more.

The Longhorn had a short life, opening in 1978 and closing in 1980, but left an indelible mark on Twin Cities music.
