Neighborhoods
Corktown: You are here! Detroit's oldest neighborhood and now Detroit's most artsy and still "true Detroit." Think established and well-loved restaurants and bars with some brand new additions as well. Brunch: Brooklyn Street Local - Upscale diner serving breakfast and some lunch items open-close. Vegan and carnivore friendly, great coffee too, and now serving breakfast drinks as well. Folk - Recently opened small brunch spot serving local and organic products whenever possible. PJs Lager House - Dive bar does brunch, and does it well. You’ll find a classic breakfast and generous mimosas and bloody marys. Lunch/dinner spots: *Takoi - Award winning Thai fusion, small plates and craft cocktails. There will likely be a wait so get there early. Not very family friendly. Ima - Korean inspired in a laid back environment. Ottava Via - Serves pizza, other Itaian dishes, and has a divine wine list. Includes shuffleboard and is a great option for date night or family dinner. Slows BBQ - Best BBQ in Detroit. Not to be missed. Gold Cash Gold - Locally sourced dishes in a former vintage pawn shop setting Low-key options: PJs Lager House - Local dive bar that serves great food and often has live music. Mercury Bar - Serves burgers and shakes all night Mudgies - Sandwiches, salads, beer and wine. Cocktails: Sugar House - Craft cocktails in a speakeasy style setting. Two James Distillery - Local distillery with craft cocktails PJs Lager House - Mentioned again because the drinks are cheap, the space is low-key and divey, but maybe that and live music are what you’re looking for. Jack White is said to frequent here when he’s in Detroit. Motor City Wine - My personal favorite for so many reasons. Serving reasonably priced yet perfectly curated wine by the bottle, there is a live jazz band playing most nights (occasionally there is a DJ but you can find more info on their website. MCW attracts people from all walks of life and has a true Detroit vibe. Shopping: *El Dorado - Antique/vintage/local artists driven shop filled with the owner’s finds while traveling across the country. You’ll find everything from postcards, prints, leather bags, vintage dresses, handmade jewelry, tarot, crystals, candles, and more. Coffee: Astro Coffee - Artisan coffee and baked goods in a charming, clean space.

Downtown - Detroit's fastest growing neighborhood. Downtown was a ghost town until 6ish years ago, but now has that true city vibe and is home to some of Detroit's most renowned bars, restaurants, and shopping. Things to do: Grab coffee and wander the streets - Detroit’s architecture and street art are gorgeous and unique. There’s a story behind every building and mural. Campius Martius Park - Detroit’s center that always has something interesting going on. It exists as a beach bar in summer and an ice rink in the winter. Capitol Park - Beautiful architecture, restaurants, coffee, shopping, and a communal park space. *The Belt - A (somewhat) hidden gem! A back alley that is now home for ever-changing art installations and famous bars the Skip and Standby. If you want to a night out, start here. Punch Bowl Social - Massive Detroit bar and restaurant that includes bowling, pool, darts, ping-pong, and a handful of arcade games. Family friendly during the day and shifts to an adults-only party at night. Cliff-Bells - Beautiful and historic jazz bar and former speakeasy that also serves food, drinks, and brunch (bottomless mimosas!). *Citizen Yoga - If you want to catch a yoga class while in Detroit, this is the place to do it. Shop at Lululemon, H&M (opening any day now!), Nike, Moosejaw, Detroit Is The New Black, and many more. The Siren Hotel - Lovingly renovated 1920’s hotel that kept its charm and retro feel. Includes a retro cafe, a trendy cocktail bar, and a tiny high-end restaurant. Cocktails: The Keep - Speakeasy style bar with impeccably created craft cocktails. A local favorite. Checker Bar - Karaoke nights, arcade games, strong drinks. Ready Player One - Arcade bar with classic arcade games, food and drinks. *Cafe D’Mongos Speakeasy - Another hidden gem. Lively, fun, authentic, you’ll often find live music and high energy. Standby - Unique and award winning for its craft cocktails. The entrance is hidden on one end of the Belt. The Skip - Open air bar located on the belt. If you want a night out, start here. Bad Luck Bar - Tiny prohibition style bar (serves maybe 20 max) whose entrance is hidden behind an alley in Capital Park. Stepping into the bar is an experience. It can be pricey but absolutely worth checking out, if you can find it! The Monarch Club - Recently opened swanky rooftop bar Lunch/Dinner Spots: Townhouse - Spacious and trendy spot with great food in the heart of downtown. Republic Tavern - Lovely crafted plates and ambiance. Republic sources from local farms whenever possible. Maru Sushi - Japanese restaurant featuring sushi, sharing plates, and cocktails. Hot Taco - Inexpensive, quick, yet delicious tacos. Great for a late night meal. 7 Greens - Quick, filling and delicious salad bowls. Only open Monday - Friday. San Morello - One of Detroit’s newest additions. Spacious and lovely high-end Italian restaurant. Located in the Shinola hotel Brunch: Parks and Rec - Diner style setup with amazing food and a seasonally rotating menu. Dimestore - Eggs, espresso, vegetarian friendly fare. Coffee: *Dessert Oasis Coffee Roasters - My go-to! Located in Capitol Park, known for the best coffee and espresso in the area in an airy, inviting space. Great if you need a space to pause and get work done as well. Ashe Supply Co. - Excellent coffee in an industrial themed space.

Spend an easy Sunday wandering the aisles, bring coffee, get lost in something unique, and maybe even play hide and seek here. There are 4 floors and so much space to explore. Greektown - Greek restaurants and a great place to start if you’re going out for the night.
