Got a nice invitation today to take a walk through the new venue that's going in next door to us here at The River. It's the new venue called 20 Monroe Live, and it's right between The River and the BOB downtown. It looks like it's going to be amazing!

With the ability to hold at least 2,500 people, this will be the perfect place for concerts from bands who are getting a little bigger, but aren't quite big enough to hit the Van Andel or the Deltaplex. The place is scalable, too, and can accommodate seating on the floor for shows, too.

It's not going to take away from The Intersection, which is a great venue for shows, but will be a great addition to the selection of venues in Grand Rapids.

20 Monroe Live opens February 1st, and they already have a bunch of shows planned for the opening, and will be announcing shows with us in the next few weeks! I'm really excited to see who they have booked for us next year!

There are some great VIP areas we will be able to hook you guys up with access to for shows, and great party rooms for pre-show activities, and more! It's going to be a cool venue!
