Detroit has several well-known landmarks that exude the history, attitude and aura of the city. One such landmark is The Majestic Complex located at 4120 Woodward in Midtown.

Included in this giant entertainment complex are: The Majestic Theatre, Garden Bowl, Magic Stick, The Majestic Café, Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizzeria & Deli and The Alley Deck. Let’s go into a little bit more detail on each.

The Majestic Theatre was built way back in 1915. Fun fact: in 1915, people were outraged that gas prices rose from around $0.13 a gallon to an unbearable $0.25 a gallon (yes, I looked that up). When it opened, it was the largest theatre in the world of its kind!

Today, the theatre sees some of the most popular acts, memorable concerts and best performances in Detroit. A variety of music, such as blues, indie, hip hop, jazz, rock and more! The Majestic Theatre can house up to 1,000 people and has two full-service bars!

Garden Bowl is even older than the theatre, as it was built in 1913 (the average gallon of gas was around $0.12 for those of us playing at home). In fact, according to The Majestic’s website, Garden Bowl is the oldest active bowling center in America.

Flash forward to 2014 and you can enjoy $7 Mondays where you can get a beer or pop, a slice of pizza, shoes and an hour of bowling all for just $7 every Monday starting at 9 p.m. You may also want to check out Rock-n-Bowl party packages for some added fun with glow in the dark lanes and rock music! Shoes are $3 to rent, and open bowling rates vary by day.

Magic Stick is another music venue within The Majestic grounds. It has gotten a lot of well-deserved recognition as one of Detroit’s best live music venues. The White Stripes, Kings of Leon and Jack Johnson have all performed here! The Magic Stick has a capacity of 550 and also has two full-service bars.

The Majestic Café slides under the radar from its more well-known counterparts of the building, but it is the place to go when you are looking for some grub in the complex! It is open for brunch from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and happy hour from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. (with an extended happy hour on Thursdays, 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.). The café also offers trivia on Wednesdays and catering services!

Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizzeria and Deli is located inside of the Garden Bowl. This pizzeria is known for its specialty pizza and sandwiches! However, it also serves salads and “late night bites” until 2 a.m. (opens at 11 a.m.). Pizza is pretty much a staple of bowling, so be sure to stop in whilst at the oldest bowling alley in the U.S.A.

The Alley Deck is The Majestic’s place for some rooftop fun! It is adjacent to the Magic Stick and above the Garden Bowl. The Alley Deck is open daily from May through September and overlooks Woodward Avenue. It is also open during shows at the Magic Stick. It is a great place for celebrations, birthday parties or a company get together!

Oh, I almost forgot! The Majestic offers a free shuttle to all Detroit sporting and special events. As you can see, The Majestic is full of entertainment. Check out the upcoming events at the complex and get down to Midtown for a fun-filled night.
