Saint Andrew’s Hall
|Address||431 E Congress|
St. Andrew's Hall was built in 1907 as the meeting site for the St. Andrew's Scottish Society of Detroit. When membership fell off sharply in the 1940s, groups starting renting the facility for concerts, meetings, and special events through the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Not until the 1980s t was Saint Andrew's more regularly documented as a trendsetting, iconic music club.
In 1994, with the St. Andrew's Scottish Society of Detroit membership declining as more people were reluctant to come downtown, the one and only building ever known as St. Andrew’s Hall was sold to its current owner, a rock music promoter. The building is still in use today as the venue for a variety of alternative music concerts. This iconic venue that can accommodate up to 1000 people has hosted a multitude of live acts since the 90's. Acts such as Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon, Nirvana, R.E.M., the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden, John Mayer, Adele, and Eminem.
Located below Saint Andrew's Hall is the The Shelter a general admission venue that can hold 400 people.
