Entertainment and Bars in Detroit
Your man or woman decides to take you out for a romantic night in Detroit, but where should you go? If you want to go all out, a dinner at The Whitney or the Apparatus Room will tickle your fancy (get it?). Roast, London Chop House or the brand new Prime + Proper in Capitol Park will exceed your meat-loving expectations. For a classic date night, you can’t go wrong with Italian food in Detroit. Ottava Via in Corktown, Mario’s in Midtown and Andiamo on the Detroit River will transport your taste buds to Italy.
If you’re in town for the night and are looking for music, dancing, and maybe a little clubbing, we don’t blame you. A night on the town never hurt anybody! Greektown has a few of your bases covered with a casino, Level Two Bar & Rooftop, Exodos Nightclub, and classic sports bars like Firebird Tavern and Old Shillelagh. If you’ve never been out in Detroit before, this is a good area to start. For dancing, you can’t beat salsa dancing and lessons at Vicente’s Cuban Cuisine. When you’re feeling jazzy, you MUST go to Cliff Bell’s for live jazz and fabulous drinks. And if you’ve had a long day and just want some drinks, hit up Sugar House or Two James Spirits in Corktown for craft cocktails and Bronx Bar or Motor City Brewing Works in Midtown for beer and a chill vibe.
Detroit’s casinos are world-class, so we sure to stop by them while you’re in town. Aside from all of the casino classics, check out top notch dining such as Iridescence at MotorCity Casino, Wolfgang Puck Steak at MGM Grand Detroit. And Greektown Casino is surrounded by authentic Greek cuisine and nightlife.
Iconic Detroit Hot Spots
None of us want to admit to it, but we all love a good touristy photo or attraction. They must be popular for a reason, right? Well we are proud of our iconic Detroit landmarks, like the Spirit of Detroit and the Joe Louis first, both located near the GM Renaissance Center (a Detroit landmark in its own right). No trip to Motown is complete without a visit to the Motown Museum. You can literally stand in the studio where legends like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Diana Ross and Michael Jackson got their start. And if you have time for a show, don’t miss out on a chance to see the inside of the Fox Theatre. The ceiling could bring you to tears.
