The Pyramid Scheme

The Pyramid Scheme was formally a vacant, mold-infused structure originally constructed as a car repair shop in downtown Grand Rapids. The goal was to create a bar in the front and a live music venue in the back to accommodate approximately 300 people. Located in a historic district, the exterior needed to meet the requirements of the Department of Interior Standards for Historic Preservation. The original copper window frames were restored and historical photos matched the façade with its original appearance. The interior bar seating allows for flexibility and features dozens of pinball machines.
