Crews have revamped the space, creating a new stage for musicians and artists of all backgrounds to showcase their talent — the goal of owner and fellow musician Joshua Tree. Metro Grand Rapids’ artsy vibe is also on display on its walls, with a mural and art installations by Carribbean artist Picardo.

Metro Grand Rapids also features a sleek wooden wraparound bar with 20 beers on tap, a food menu and a back patio.

Admission is free before 9 p.m.
