- One of Detroit's most unusual landmarks, the restored Majestic Theatre building houses a Middle Eastern restaurant, an upstairs bowling alley and a concert venue. Though everything, from poetry readings to political rallies can be found here, the most common fare is alternative rock music, performed by local or touring national acts. Adding to the bizarre attraction of the place is its history. The legendary magician Harry Houdini gave his last performance on stage here, on Halloween night 1926. He died a few days later of peritonitis at Detroit's old Grace Hospital. Today, expect a loud, youthful crowd at most events.
