Bridge Street Area

Monte's - See and be seen by some of Grand Rapids' most beautiful people in a trendy, stylish and intimate atmosphere. Live DJs pack the dance floor and drink specials are offered most nights, so arrive early to beat the rush and the line. Thursdays are Ladies Nights and Monte's often has no cover charge throughout the week.

O'Toole's - Just down the block from Monte's, O'Toole's gives bar-goers a relaxed alternative to the dance club. Throw peanut shells on the floor while you sip one of the many beer selections on draft, or challenge friends to one of the many available board games. The Irish pub also has a full lunch and dinner menu , no cover charge and food is served until 1 a.m.

The Anchor - If you're looking for a stiff, cheap drink, locate the red neon Anchor directly across from Monte's and O'Toole's. The booths at the cozy, nautical-themed bar may not be quite big enough to fit four comfortably, but the free popcorn, low prices and mermaid mural behind the bar more than make up for it. Lately, the watering hole has been a growing attraction of younger crowds who stop by before heading to the other Bridge Street bars.

Level - A short jog down Broadway takes you to the American Seating Complex, home of Level. After undergoing a couple name changes (The Stack, The Boss), Level may now be the one that perfectly decribes the club. The main floor features a large bar and the DJ spins from a raised platform overlooking one of the larger dance floors in GR. After hitting the floor, relax on the recently expanded upper floor which can now be reached by both stairs and elevator. In addition, large screens featuring music videos are projected on the exposed brick walls, making Level a unique choice to celebrate a Friday night.
