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.

We love downtown Detroit! The city is changing so much.....you can rent bicycles and ride along the Dequinder Cut. A beautiful biking trail. Scooters are being placed throughout the city to get around easier. n the Summer time there are many events and festivals that come to the city to see. Campus Martias is fun either in the Summer or Winter. In the Summer they have a beach theme with real sand and beach chairs and an outside bar and in the Winter they set up an ice rink and the city Christmas tree. 27 min (18.2 miles)
