About Us:

The Loft was born in April of 2010.  The club is the combined brainchild of former Temple Club GM and Current JDLive promoter, Jerome White and Harem Urban Lounge owner, Doug Johns.  The club was opened with live music in mind.  With a capacity of 400, it is the perfect midsized room for a midsized market.

The club is located in the heart of the Stadium District in downtown Lansing.  REVUE magazine called the block, “the coolest block in Michigan” and each and every night, people can be seen lining the streets.  The Loft is right in the middle of it all.

The room is also versatile enough to hold private parties ranging from corporate events and wedding receptions to smaller birthday parties.


Although most people wouldn’t know it, there is actually plenty of parking for the Loft.  The parking lot behind Omar’s and The Exchange is free for Loft guests.  There are times when there is a $5 charge, but that $5 acts as cash in any of the following bars:  The Loft, Harem Urban Lounge, The Exchange, Omar’s Showbar, The Tin Can bar.

Additional parking can be found 100 yards to the north, under the Lansing Center.  The parking lot is accessed from either Museum drive (under Michigan Avenue) or from Cedar street, next to the Lansing City Market.

There is also parking on the street right all down Michigan Avenue, in the Cooley Law Stadium parking lot (when there is not a game) and behind the Stadium District building.
