For those of us GR people that were around when this was The Duece this popular middle aged bar has certainly caught on in the downtown area. With live music on the weekends and the classier look than before 48 West is an icon. It is connected to Taps if you want a change in scenery.
Dress Code: No real dress code... but everyone is usually dressed business casual at least. I have worn jeans in there though... it's no big deal.

This place is incredibly beautiful. If you have never been to GR before you have to at least visit this place.
There are four floors (including the basement) -- much of which are restuarants. This place normally attracts crowds in their 30's and 40's so I don't really go in there much. There are comedy shows on the third floor Thursdays through Saturdays. Totally worth seeing... check out every floor.
Dress Code: Dress nice... no baseball hats or tennis shoes

The BOB, downtown, is the most popular night spot in the area. It has 4 floors of restaurants, clubs, and a comedy revue. They charge cover after 9pm. There are clubs and bars all over the place downtown, but the best are located near the arena (and the BOB). I recommend The BOB, Taps, Flannigans, and J. Gardellas. Bulls Head is good, but VERY noisy. Opus is very popular with aging yuppie types. Stay away from any bars in the Amway Grand Plaza complex, and those on Division Ave. (they advertise a lot, but are dull, dull, dull). Go to Mulligans and The Intersection in Eastown for the best live music and the grunge scene. The bars and clubs in the suburbs tend to attract a redneck crowd.
The BOB is fun because there is so much to do in one building.
Dress Code: Most are dressy-casual... khakis and a shirt.

Just about anyone who's been in Grand Rapids knows about the BOB. The BOB stands for Big Old Building, and is pretty much in the center of things in downtown Grand Rapids.
The BOB has just about enything for every taste. Food, dancing, live bands, an arcade, a brewery, pool tables, outdoor decks, and a comedy club.
Dress Code: It's such a big place that just about every type of person can be found here, especially with the Van Andal Arena next door.
On avaerage though most people are nicely dressed because they're there for dates/business dinners/shows.

If you're in GR and looking for the nightlife, check out the BOB (Big Old Building) in Downtown Grand Rapids. They will have whatever you're in the mood for.
The BOB is a three story 'night-spot mall.' It offers fine dining, dance clubs, a comedy club, an arcade, pool hall, burger joint, tobacconist, and a bar. All this under one roof.
Dress Code: The dress code depends on where you're headed. The fine dining requires dress attire, while the arcade and pool hall normally finds their patrons wearing jeans. Dress according to your destination.

This place has a great atmosphere with kind service and moderate pricing. If you want a downtown restaurant that is reasonably priced with a good atmosphere this is a good one.
