The 5-D

The 5th Dimension was a teen nightclub that opened in a former bowling alley in the mid-60s. It was located on Huron Street just west of downtown and featured mainly local acts like The Rationals and Bob Seger & the Last Heard, although such famous groups as The Who, The Yardbirds and The Jimi Hendrix Experience all performed there while touring. After the club closed the building was transformed again, this time into a popular restaurant called The Whiffletree. Several years later the building was destroyed by fire.
