A Little History about The Press.

The Press Bar & Parlor sits on some very historical land. One could say it was the birthplace of St. Cloud.

Originally known as Acadia, (or “upper town”) St. Cloud’s first business sat on the very spot well over 100 years ago. Joseph Edelbrock’s General Store occupied the site where Joseph not only ran the store, he also acted as the first Postmaster, Mayor, Alderman, County Sheriff, Register of deeds and U.S. Marshal. He built the building out of wood in 1855. The building also housed the first post office, the first St. Benedictine mass and first school room that taught a whopping 10 students.

That original building was tore down and rebuilt with wood and red brick and is what we still know as the Press Bar building. Before officially being called the Press Bar & Parlor in 1942, then owned by Fritz, “Fritzie” Frank, the building was used as D.B. Searle’s law office, a cigar store, a beauty parlor, retail and liquor store, pool hall, apartments, and most importantly, the St. Cloud Times, hence the name “The Press”.

Greg Payne and Jim “Diz” Gillespie bought The Press in 1974 and still own and operate it today. They remodeled the upstairs from apartments into a pool hall known as “The Parlor”.

Since the mid 70s The Press has had a national, if not international, reputation for being one of the best nights clubs for live Rock & Roll music. Today that legend lives on and in addition, the Parlor upstairs is a favorite for club-hoppers featuring live DJs and dance music with a state of the art sound and light systems surrounding a beautiful dance floor overlooking the St. Germain mall and Mississippi River amidst many TVs, a pool hall, darts & foosball room.

Further renovations throughout the years have kept The Press Bar & Parlor relevant in this fast paced world and even faster paced live entertainment industry, at the same time keeping its history alive. The basement of The Press still houses the original wooden paving blocks and granite foundation Edelbrock built in 1881. Now there’s some history!

Soultree

Soul Tree is an amazingly well established variety band for their age (24-27). They have been playing over 100 shows a year around the Mid-West for the past 5 years. They have made their name by being an energetic and talented group of young musicians that have opened for national acts (Saving Abel, Koerner Ray & Glover) and have played on every big stage in the Twin Cities (First Ave, Triple Rock, Varsity Theatre).

Blu Simon

Energy is the one word that describes Blu Simon. Playing hits from today, yesterday, and tomorrow, this group will fill any bar or venue with a high octane energy that will get people moving and leave them begging for more. It is hard to put into words what this act does, but once you see them you will understand and you will never look at live music the same again. You won't find a group with a better stage presence, better crowd interaction, or straight up musicianship anywhere else.
