Best Bloody Mary, food incredible, service great. Well worth the trip. Check out a show on their stage. WMU performers, so they support local college arts.

A good restaurant, with a cool vibe inside. The entertainment feature is great, and the food is pretty good. I would recommend making reservations during entertainment times, as it's hard to get a table. The waitstaff was appropriately friendly, they seemed to be trained well-...More

The service is fast and inviting, and the entertainment is exceptional. This place makes for the perfect date night, with delicious food, a full variety of drinks, and great bands with no cover charge.

Always a great choice to grab a glass of wine and listen to seasoned jazz locals, amazing guest artists and formidable jazz students perform.

Food and service was very good. Really nice laid back atmosphere. BBQ rib tips and gator balls were excellent.

Stopped in for an early dinner before the live music had started up, which was a bummer because I can imagine that place could get real funky! Food was delicious and not to pricey. Side note: The sinks in the bathrooms were crazy, you'll have...More

The Union is a great restaurant with super good food. Their specials allow you to try things that you may not normally order. I love their Friday Happy Hour where EVERYTHING on the menu is half off. Great salmon, soups, tempura shrimp and their macaroni...More

Not sure if the Union has a private room. The Wine Loft in Kalamazoo might, and Zazios has a private section that would probably work well.
