The sound in the Intersection was excellent, especially if you hang in the middle of the room near the sound board. I wish there had been more tables, but if you did not get there early, you had to stand. The only thing that could...More

This is a great venue, very clean, very friendly staff, and drink prices were very good. The artist we heard was mixed well and crowd was incredible. We would go back again.

I've always had a great time here. They always bring in great artists and I always enjoy the staff and security. Always is the key word.

Worst place ever! Gone down hill. Staff is rude and turning into a dive. Needs shut down. Just for kids. Should shut down the bars and make it a 20 and under club. Music acts they have are worthless. We will stay at 20 Monroe...More

Arrive early and choose your seat quickly. The good seats fill fast. Nice accommodating staff, reasonably priced drinks. Indoor climate varies, so have layers you can put on, or bring a light blanket. Seats are not comfortable, most are folding chairs, or backless stools.

We saw the band Blue October at The Intersection in Grand Rapids and the acoustics were particularly good when hanging out mid-room near the sound board. There are only a few places to sit, but it's a wonderful small venue for hearing live music. I...More

This club caters to the younger set with the type of rock bands that might be called fringe or alternative. There are some mainstream acts, but that is the exception. Expect to stand up all night as there are very few chairs in this place....More

There is but very limited and to the sides. Most shows have tickets specific to those areas.

For most shows they offer VIP & reserve tables, but it would be best to contact their box office for specifics for each show.
