    Great venue for a private event. Event manager here is a bit too serious though. Too many rules and restrictions.

    It sounds like you're in a giant tin box. Sound is awful. Beers are expensive and crappy.

    They need a better vodka!!!

    Balcony is great if you don't feel like standing through a concert, but seats need a ton more cushion. Solid view.

    Get a spot at the top of the stairs in the middle of the main floor to guarantee a good view of the show.

    Awesome venue! Beautiful theatre and great sound too. If you can see a show here, do it.

    Nice venue, the sound engineer isn't the greatest.

    I wish they had better sound, and sound techs. Just saying.

    Niki Ricer · July 21, 2013
  • Chris O.

    The theater is nice, but seriously...the floor is flat, not sloped. If you're at a sit down show, you will NOT be able to see unless you're lucky or tall.

    Chris O'Sullivan · April 24, 2013
  • Ann M.

    My absolute favorite place to see a show.

    Since when has print at home tickets considered VIP? We waited in the freezing cold ALL DAY for 1st row for a GA concert, only to be held back until print at home tickets holders were let in. WTF?

    If you love it, sing along! It always gets loud with Jake Owen (10/18/12), headlining #CMTonTour 2012, with special guests Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line.

    Pro Tip! - Order a Mello Yello Slurpee at the bar. The bartender might tell you that they don't have Slurpees, but don't listen. They are lying to you.

    Worst place to see a show in Detroit. Impossible to see unless you are at front of section or are over 6' 3". Sound is almost always terrible. I only come here if the show is can't miss.

    Purchase tickets at the box office. You get better seats.

    Great spot for a show. Get there early...the line can sometimes be very long to enter.

    Check out their website before hand and see what is playing. There is something for everyone. Get there early though, the lines for a lot of things tend to be long.

    Important: if you plan on getting here early, choose the print out ticket or cell phone ticket option. Otherwise, you wont get in early regardless of when you get here.
