Old Miami

Established in 1975 as a haven for Vietnam Veterans, the Old Miami has been called "the C.B.G.B's of the midwest" for it's history as a music venue. Almost every notable artist from Detroit has played on it's stage as well as many national acts of the punk/modern rock era. The walls are lined thick with Vietnam and other military momentums, many of which were given to owner Danny Overstreet by fellow veterans. A jukebox full of vinyl from Patsy Kline to Gang Green sits next to the pool table. Comfortable couches and chairs are placed by the fireplace and in front of the dance floor creating a relaxed den-like atmosphere. Across the dance floor a wall of speakers almost obscures the stage. The sound system is unusually large for a room this size. The huge back yard with a pond and large porch/stage hosts many all-day outdoor events in the summer months. People from all walks of life call the Old Miami a home away from home. Bikers and bladers, lawyers and anarchists are its patrons who gravitate to this easy-going off-campus dive where live music rules.
