Eminem in Negotiations to Buy Storied Detroit Nightclub

eminem.jpgEminem and his manager, Paul Rosenberg, are reportedly interested in purchasing the legendary Detroit nightclub, St. Andrew’s Hall. According to the Detroit News, the rapper has been negotiating with concert promotion firm Live Nation for the past month. St. Andrew’s, which figured prominently in Em’s film 8 Mile, has been an integral location for Detroit hip-hop for many years and the scene of countless rap battles. St. Andrew’s—located on E. Congress St.—has a capacity of about 1,000 people with stages on the main level and in the basement area, which is referred to as The Shelter. Under the proposed deal, Em and Rosenberg would manage the club but retain the current management team for day to day operations. Representatives for Live Nation and St. Andrews management declined to comment on the negotiations.
