The BEST! Other venues should take notice – To start, I think mstlcopeland was at the wrong place. St. Andrews lines are roped off. Maybe the people "getting in front" were the ones who payed with their ticket for the VIP to cut the line? Security said they sell a very limited amount of those so I doubt it was many ppl. I wasn't bothered by it at all. I've been to many concerts all over and this place has GREAT sound. The biggest names play there and to see them in a smaller venue, its more up close and personal, is outstanding! I always feel safe there and security is very helpful and seem to actually care. The beer list is HUGE! Prices are way less than most places too! And the bartender was probably the nicest I've ever had. She took the time to explain some of the newer local beers and helped me decide which to try. On the way out this last time I asked to talk to the manager (Mike) to tell him how much I loved the place and how nice the staff was. Also that I'm thinking about bringing my son to his 1st show in a couple weeks. He said if I do that he would upgrade my tickets to the VIP free and possibly a meet and greet! I'm beyond impressed with this place, I didn't know customer service this great still existed. And of course the amazing sound and experience you get from seeing a show there!! For people that go to a lot of shows at different venues, you'll be quick to understand why St. Andrews has been and always will be my favorite!!
Worse venue I have ever gone to. – This is the absolute worse venue I have ever been to. My sisters are here from Alabama and excited to be going to their first concert seeing their favorite performers. They were so excited they were the very first people in line. As people started coming, the line became chaotic. Instead of the staff provided the proper crowd control, they continued to let people get in front of people that had been there for 6 hours. By this being a childrens concert, they should have roped off the entire area to provide the necessary lines. I along with several other parents said they will never bring their children here again. In addition to this post, I plan on contacting live nation, management at St Andrews, and the promoters.

Tony Orlando has never played here!!!! – I heard the lady that brought the dog to the Shelter first lied and told the staff that the dog was part of the show. The group's manager performing that night was overheard saying that "lady" was a crazed fan who had been following the band and showing up to shows and offering them illegal medications (wink wink nudge nudge). They had brought the dog up on stage the night before because they thought it was funny.
Is it wrong to bring a dog into a music venue with extremely loud music, intoxicated people, and possible broken glass on the floor? Talk about animal cruelty!
Does everyone feel comfortable around large dogs they do not know? Obviously not by the police reactions to her dog.
Was St. Andrew's denying someone their right to basic human needs? No, this was an entertainment event not a soup kitchen. Was she within her right to come in? Sure, but why subject a dog to that type of environment?
BTW said "lady" was heard yelling she wanted the contact info for her lawyer who she stated was Allen Ginsberg (who died in 1997).
Editorial Review – Three-story club is the patron saint of trendy concerts and alternative shows, with a ballroom maxing out at 1,000 fans.
Great memories! – I've seen a bunch of bands here and I love it everytime! It's falliing apart though. I don't know if they've replaced the floors yet, but when we went to see a band there, the openin band played then they shut down the show. They said the floor was falling through and there were people below us in the shelter. CRAZY!
Great place, great staff, great time. – Jbuss's review of this venue is amazingly inaccurate. I've been to St Andrew's Hall back at the time that review was written, along with just the other night, and both times, I've had a blast. The staff was incredible (at the Aquabats show, the security was joining in with all our goofy actions, up to and including doing the Circle of Love, and at one point even encouraging the audience to give the 'A' handsign). Some friends and I even chatted with them a bit after the shows; fantastic guys, all of them.
I've seen the 'Bats at the Majestic, and the story was completely different; the security team was all total jerks (one actually took a playlist away from a fan that was personally given to them by a member of the band). I'm unspeakably pleased that the band decided to go back to St. Andrew's, and I hope that they continue to return there every time they visit Detroit.
no class – this place was disrespectful to the bands I didnt pay that much money to see one band Then have to contend with a band powering up in the basement that sucked even battle of the bands take turns not different music at the same time.The Seating sucked,
and at least at DTE I was able to bring a seat knowing there are NO SEATS on the hill. You can stand in front of the stage or against the wall however there were a couple of bar stools. They could of set out a couple of benchs. that might ofcost to much!
My comments are about "The Shelter" which is in te basement of this 3 story building. The mood is WONDERFUL. Black walls with red and blue lights everywhere. You are instantly comfortable entering there. The venue holds about 200 people MAX and there is NO WHERE to sit other than the bar area which seats about 12 people. The drink prices are OUTRAGEOUS. 4 dollars for a domestic beer, and the prices go up from there..WAY UP. Food... not here. With some white lights this place would lose 100% of it's appeal, as it's really only an old basement with brick walls and pipes running everywhere. There is one metal support thats smack dab in the way of the stage and that kind of sucks too. I loved the look. I loved the music, but everything else left a lot to be desired.
hottest spot in the dee – the best concert hall in detroit. awesome shows . cheap . upclose&personal w/ da bandz
