Good food and Music

Good selection of food on the menu with great tasting appetizers and meals. I have been lucky on my visits to The Union as the live musicians where very good. It was a very comfortable place to eat and the price was very reasonable. One of my favorite places downtown Kalamazoo to eat.

A cool bar with even cooler staff helping you out. As a guy new to the US, they shared advice on where to go, where the music is and stuff like that.

Nice service interesting menu and great music. Food was just okay. I was served a Cobb salad which was mostly spring mix and then they forgot the dressing.

Dripping in romance!!! From the food and drinks, through the music. The ambiance produces flames of desire!!! A good time is bad by all.

Delicious food, fun selection, and great music. Awesome experience overall! Had the Gator balls appetizer, draft wheat beer, and pulled pork sandwich. All were fantastic. Loved the selection of 6 BBQ sauces (rated by heat) 👍

We enjoyed a night cap after midnight with local friends. The jazz music was exceptional with two drummers bantering back and forth in a solo of at least 20 minutes. The drinks were cold an well mixed. We were hankering for a snack, but it was 12:20 am and was told the kitchen closed at midnight. That is understandable as... More
