Grand Rapids – 28th St.
Speaking of the scar disco has placed on our society, anyone remember the Coral Gables on 28th just west of the train overpass near Breton? I recall seeing the horn section from Earth Wind & Fire play there. As I recall, this club went through a handful of make-overs until its ultimate demise. Of course, back in those days Coral Gables was an entertainment behemoth with locations in Kalamazoo, Lansing, Saugatuck and several others including I believe Manistee. If you attended college in the 70s, you were accustomed to seeing concert posters advertising bands touring all their locations. Whistle-Stop
It was Coral Gables – Point After and before Coral Gables it was The Grotto, then after Coral Gables it become Electric Avenue that was a dance club that existed during the 80s, I think at some point in the early 90s, it became “Dick’s Resort,” then sat vacant a bit, then got demolished.
