This bar is more for Chicago. The setup and view is great. Very posh. Music is top forty. I would like the music to be more housie. More like a big city. So, it would attract the right crowd for this place.

I have had a couple of experiences with the Gatsby and neither have been any good to talk about. The first encounter happened when I sent an email asking to use the Gatsby as the backdrop for our 1920's themed engagement photos. I was assured that I could not as they have a photographer on staff and it would have... More

This is one of the best night clubs I have ever been to. The service was great and the music was wonderful. The best part is that if you are not in a dancing mood then just go downstairs where there is a dueling piano bar that's absolutely wonderful!

I LOVE the Gatsby! The posh feel and the unique setting make the atmosphere much more elevated than any other place in Kalamazoo. It's a great place to go for some cocktails with the girlfriends!

I decided to try The Gatsby, Kalamazoo's new "speak-easy" restaurant, located in the entertainment district, downtown. I enjoyed the 20's era theme, and old fashioned drinks, such as the Jitterbug and the Bees Knees. We didn't try the appetizers, but heard that the homemade bread is wonderful.
