It is definitely a dive bar, a trip to the bathrooms will more than confirm this. There isn't a space on the walls not covered by graffiti or a sticker. Cover is reasonable and the crowd, while eclectic, is very friendly. The drinks are fairly priced but be careful they are super strong. The venue is great for concerts.
MAC's Bar is named after Michigan Agricultural College, an antiquated name for Michigan State University. It has long been a favorite of East/Lansing residents and Michigan State students alike.
MAC's Bar has pushed the envelope in providing a venue for live local music and visiting indie bands. The close, intimate environment and excellent sound system have long been a feature of the music scene in Lansing.
