History

Grand Rapids has a long history of live entertainment venues and music halls, beginning with Lyceum Hall (1853), Steketee's Music Hall (1875), National Theatre (1901), Pantlind Ballroom (1926), Civic Theatre (1931), Civic Auditorium (1959) and DeVos Performance Hall (1980). A number of local bands gained national recognition in the 1980s, including The Verve Pipe, which signed a major-label deal with RCA Records in 1996.

The city has had difficulty maintaining live music venues since the closing of The Orbit Room in 1998 due to financial difficulties. Since then, several other venues have closed or changed hands including the 50 Monroe building, which opened as an entertainment venue in 2003 but closed five years later due to low attendance and a lack of parking nearby.

The building was originally built in 1922 as a historic hotel, then renovated into offices and a restaurant before being purchased by AEG to be turned into 20 Monroe Live.
