  • My sister and I saw a band here. The Art Deco architecture is beautiful and fascinating; really one of a kind. The one issue we ran into was only one bathroom for women (and several for men) which I g...  more »

  • What a great concert venue! Amazing architecture on the outside and ornamental decorations on the inside. Super close to a lot of other attractions in the city and easy to a park at MGM then walk over. I came a couple minutes late to a concert and had trouble finding my seat and was helped by several employees on different levels to get to the right area then escorted by flashlight to my seat as the theater was already dark. The fancy old-fashioned theater really added to the performance and made everything feel nicer. There were even bathroom attendants with towels and treats and of course, metal detectors upon arriving. Great venue that I look forward to returning to!
  • From my experiences here it's a great venue and hosts a lot of cool events. Just be prepared for the panhandlers/homeless people that hang out at the park across the street from the front door(which are harmless, that is as long as you obviously don't disrespect them). All in all great place.
  • Art deco feeling, areas are divided in six stories expression individualism in design. Each room has a purpose you may imagine. It's a great trip just to walk around. Even more, acoustic is fantastic.
  • Not bad acoustically, but I was in the balcony. The PA system is state of the art, the roof could use some baffles to keep the sharp snares from bouncing. Security for Nick Cave was terrifying and slightly rude. For the venue and the crowd there was way too much crowd control in my opinion. I will go back but maybe not for a while.w
  • this was my first visit here and I thought the site itself was beautiful and I loved the architecture, unfortunately i was there for pottercon which wasn't what i was expecting. the event was poorly organized and at one point an entire hallway reeked of vomit. overall i would definitely return to the venue.

Where to stay in Detroit

Detroit offers accommodations to suit every type of traveler, and you don't even have to stay in the central business district to take advantage of the finest hotels. Downtown lodging gives you easy access to most of the city's major attractions, but choosing a more affordable room in Detroit's outlying neighborhoods can also be rewarding. To explore the city's famously diverse neighborhoods, consider staying at a budget-friendly guesthouse on the southwestern side of the city.
