    They are now open again at joy road but only on Sunday nights and not sure that it is every Sunday or not. Went to the grand reopening and it was okay...not like it used to be. The bouncers were rude, the sound system was awful, first drink I had was awful, and there's no drinks allowed on the dancefloor, yet the bouncers and some bar staff were smoking inside (illegal in Michigan)

    Well, I'm turning 40 next month, but have been going to Backstreet for decades. It is as fun now as it was the first time I walked through the door. Yes, its in a bad area, but I have never felt unsafe or been harassed in any way. Great dance floor/lights/sound/music. Definitely hot guys.
