New live entertainment and event hall opening in downtown Lansing
After months of delays, a new live entertainment venue is now open in downtown Lansing.
Grewal Hall is now hosting concerts, comedians and private gatherings at 224 Washington Square. The location can fit up to 900 people for standing room shows.
Jenna Meyer, one of the hall’s owners, said the space is a needed addition for a city lacking concert halls.
“In terms of any sort of successful city, there’s an ecosystem that exists right between restaurants and bars and retail and hospitality, and then events and arts and entertainment,” Meyer said. “We feel very confident and excited about our ability to bring people to downtown Lansing for that event, art (and) entertainment piece of the puzzle.”
The venue had several acts scheduled this summer but had to cancel multiple shows as property owners ran into delays finishing construction and getting occupancy permits from the city.
Meyer said renovating the property involved ripping down most of the interior and constructing a new facade and mezzanine.
