The B.O.B. - The Big Old Building houses three bars in addition to several restaurants and a comedy club in a restored, four-story warehouse across from Van Andel Arena. On the main level sits Crush, one of the premier nightclubs in the city, showcasing live DJs, plasma TVs and a large dance floor. On the second level, use your Cisco Sticks to play along with the live Caribbean style music, shoot some pool or play video games. Swing down to The Monkey Bar on the bottom floor for another dance floor and comfortable seating. $5 cover after 9 p.m.
- Enjoy the cantina atmosphere of the Tex-Mex themed nightclub and restaurant located just west of the Arena. Wednesday through Saturday nights feature live DJs, dancing, drink specials and special hosts from MTV, movies and more. The party heads outside during the summer when the outdoor patio is opened and plenty of drinks are served up at the large bar. 18 and up are welcome on certain nights during the week.
The Intersection - Catch your favorite local, regional or national band at downtown's second largest venue. The Intersection features both a front lounge with a pool table, games and munchies and the main show room which features quality entertainment, music, DJs and dancing. 18 and up welcome on college night.
