  • Bad Luck
    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Cards Accepted

    Bad Luck is a tricky spot to find. Although it has a Griswold St. address, the only entrance is actually in the alley in between Griswold and Woodward. Even when you find the alley, distinguishing Bad Luck’s entrance from the other industrial, unlabeled doors requires a keen eye. Look for the street number - 1218 - and a sort of black snake chara [...]

  • The Keep
    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Outdoor Patio
    • Cards Accepted

    We were pretty bummed when The Keep closed its doors in February, after just a few weeks of opening their Harmonie Park location. The speakeasy style cocktail bar, along with the neighboring Asian fusion restaurant Tokyo Club, seemed to have the potential to be downtown’s newest hotspots. But our faith in cocktail-ery was restored when The Kee [...]

  • Buhl Bar
    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Cards Accepted

    We love sports bar Happy Hours as much as the next Detroiter, but some days you just want to unwind in a quieter, posh setting. Tucked away on the first floor of the Buhl Building, Buhl Bar is an intimate, classy spot for Happy Hour. Located in the heart of the Financial District, the interior is dripping with dark wood and crown moldings. [...]
