The Avenue Cafe

2021 East Michigan Avenue

Located front and center on Lansing's fabulous East Side, the Avenue Cafe stands like a beacon of truth and justice for the masses, keeping its finger firmly placed on the pulse of the community, yet too inebriated to remember the beats per minute. Wanna come see some awesome musical performances by local and national acts alike? We've got ya covered. How about imbibe some strong cocktails or delicious craft beers? Oh yeah, we've got plenty. Feeling weak? Well, get some food in you, ya silly goose. And no better place to do that than Nomad Kitchen, serving some irresponsibly tasty burgers, incredible house-made vegan patties, and fries so good that even the Queen of England has personally endorsed them on her Twitter feed, one would assume.

So come on out and tie one on with friends old and new. Play all the pinball, pool, or Ms. Pac-Man your heart desires. Let our lovely staff of adorable miscreants fill your face with delectable potations and vittles. Take in all the crazy-good live music your little ears can handle. Eat. Drink. Be Merry.

The Avenue Café is exceptional in their services. They offer great food and drinks in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Pinball machines and other arcade games are also available to play. There are two floors, so this a great place for large groups. This lovely place is a great place to stop into.

Good place to get a cheap drink and a good, cheap meal. Lots of great video games to play. Seems like a different vibe every night. The patrons are always changing as well. Sometimes it is hard to find a parking spot.

Happy Hour Drinks + Ruckus Ramen! Fried Chicken Rice Bowl was yummy -- the chicken was nicely crisp + didn't get soggy with the sauce. Would be awesome if it had a few veggies because the rice-to-meat ratio is a bit overwhelming.

I love this place. The drinks are strong, the pinball is crisp and the vibes are funky. The people here are from all walks and usually friendly. Check out their daily deals to make the most of your visit!

Glitter Magic, the funk GOD , visited, one time. It was dope. First time I felt good there. Cuz usually the place is goddamn stupid. Sorry, but its just got a weird vibe and seems awkward.
