Coit Creative Arts Academy is the elementary ART school for the Grand Rapids Public Schools. The original building was built in 1880 and it is the oldest working school in Michigan. In 2002 it became an arts school. As a result, families have moved into the neighborhood specifically to send their children to Coit Creative Arts Academy. Because of this, the neighborhood is more art savvy than most others. It is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Medical Mile and within walking distance to downtown. With school budgets as they exist, being an exhibitor at Coit Creative Arts Academy is a wonderful nod to the dedication artists feel toward arts education for our children.

We like to say The Garage Bar & Grill "runs a good party" What's that mean? It means we make real food, starting with fresh ingredients, then turn up the flavor with a Garage Twist. It means cold beer with no pretense, real drinks with booze you can taste, and even a shot with your friends if you're in the mood. It's music you can sing along to & the kind of people who don't mind if you're a little out of tune. So when they ask you, "What is the Grand Rapids Garage Bar & Grill?" Tell em it's real food, real drinks, real people, and no BS. Or just tell em that we "run a good party."
