Saint Andrew's Hall

Restaurant Details

Since 1980, historic St. Andrews Hall in downtown Detroit has brought trend-setting music to Detroit audiences. During the early 1980s, everyone from British New Wave groups like New Order to the then-college radio bands like R.E.M. played St. Andrews Hall. When alternative music was still truly alternative, St. Andrews Hall was the place to see these avant-garde bands: The Red Hot Chili Peppers played there as early as 1984; Jane's Addiction first played in 1988; in 1989, long before grunge, Soundgarden played there. At the forefront of musical trends, these breakthrough artists have graced the stage of St. Andrews Hall: Smashing Pumpkins in 1989; Nine Inch Nails in 1990, Nirvana and Pearl Jam in 1991, Alice in Chains in 1992, Green Day in 1994, Oasis in 1995. The ballroom which holds 1,000 people, is a favorite venue among musicians as well as concert-goers because of its acoustics and perfect sight lines.
