The Green Room was a coffeehouse and music venue at 206 W. Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti. Opened in October of 1994 by John Westerman, the Green Room hosted everything from art shows and indie rock to independent film and dance parties, filling what Metro Times at one point called "a much ignored, very necessary, independent grassroots niche" in the area. A unique venue to so many up and coming young artists, both musical, visual, and performance, this creative influx of minds became a thriving meeting ground for many collaborative and solo artists to explode new visions & questions upon the realm of 'Generation X' and those to come, while deciphering the myth from legend of generations past.
By 1998, Westerman had left for Madison, Wisconsin, taking the Green Room with him; the space was soon reopened as Dixie.
The location is currently occupied by Ziggy's, a performance space, bar and coffeehouse.
