This is the last club I thought would have a memories thread! I went once and actually it was my first big time clubbing experience when I was 18!I showed up like at 9:45 and was the first one in thinking I was all cool and stuff. I didn't care for the music. To much synthesizer, Q95.5, DJ Lisa Lisa trance BS.And the whole stage show things were a bit over what I ever want to see at a club. Nowadays I go to see the DJ's. If a DJ I like is playing at bleu I go see them there. If a DJ I like is playing at some shit hole scary place I go see them there. DOn't need all of the thrills and fills.

But ALOT of people enjoyed it and the building has quite the history.

You may get a better response about this topic at www.detroitclubscene.com they frequented it and one of the reasons I went as well. Here is the link to their picture gallery of Space among other clubs: http://www.detroitclubscene.co m/gallery/index.php?cat=12

It sounds like it is still essentially "Space" still, just renamed "The Zoo." Apparently you can get lap dances upstairs though, as they still have their cabriolet licence with the building.

I was there as Backstreet - very fun...I think I did some naughty (or at least by the definition of Oral Roberts University) things there? Anyway fun place back then.

a non-clubbers view on a club? :P

I only went once so I didn't "club" there that often nor any place on a very regular basis. too expensive.

I didn't know there even was a Backstreet in Downtown Detroit. Backstreet in Atlanta was a great bar. Fantastic DJ's. Was 24x7x365.. now closed. So Sad. I wonder if they were modeled after one or the other?

I don't believe they were related at all to each other. Before Backstreet moved downtown, it was at the same location at Greenfield and Joy for a good 20 to 30 years. In fact, Backstreet is at that location right now.
