Beautiful building and a wonderful place to see a show. But be advised that the stairs are steep, limited bathrooms and only 1 elevator. If you have limited mobility stay on main floor for seating.

Loved seeing Wicked here in Detroit! Staff was helpful and friendly. Hall was a bit crowded before the show—hard to get to and from the bathroom and to get drinks. I would return here for another show!

I guess it would depend on time of day you were planning on going. Rusted crow is great. Basically anywhere in Greektown although santorini is my favorite. For awesome brunch dime store is great. Hockeytown. Chelis.
