The Green Door is the best people watching spot in Lansing, hands down. As soon as the live band starts, an eclectic mixture of folks hit the dance floor, and the fun begins. Food is decent bar fare, drinks are priced ok.....the draw is the ever changing musical styles of the bands that they bring in. We always have a... More

What a more appropriate place to spend Saint Patrick's Day. I had a great time here and loved the live music. It was fun atmosphere.

It's exactly what a local pub should be, comfortable, friendly and fun. Lots of different types of people gather for the bands, and the menu offers good food at good prices. There are fancier, newer places, but if you're looking for a cool place to hang out with friends and people watch, this is the spot.

So not the classiest place but definitely a step above a dive dive bar. Got there about midnight on a Thursday night (I had just flow in and my friend lives down the street) and there was a good amount of people there and the karaoke was in full effect. Good beer on tap, though I didn't like the berry... More

Stopped for a quick drink and stayed for nearly two hours. The music was over the top. Drinks can be a bit pricey...but with a minimal cover charge, worth the money.

For a dive bar that allegedly hosted U2 and helped venue to other cool bands, back in the day, it's forgetting this cool factor. It's "divey" but not in the good way. The whole place needs a good cleaning. We went early on a "Disco" themed night - and it became packed! We had decent hamburgers, good bar food, nothing... More

Went in on a saturday night. It was quite busy and they had a live band playing. They were understaffed and drinks took a long time. I ordered nachos and my wife ordered a chicken sandwich. About 25 minutes later our food came out, my nachos overcooked and my wifes chicken sandwich was hardly cooked at all, the first bite... More

I was both a LCC and MSU college student several years ago and I have just visited this bar for the first time. I have always thought of this place as a local dive that the younger crowd doesn't venture to, as there are not other bars around it. I met up some friends at 6pm on a Thursday night... More

I went here on a Tuesday night, big venue, saw a really good show, D.J. Assault, everyone danced it was a good time, more than 50 people at the very end at 2 am when the lights went on. Staff should be a little cheerier, it would reflect on the bar overall. Also I met my cousin there who didn't... More
