Hopcat Detroit- Midtown
Not only does Hopcat Detroit have over a hundred different beers for you to try all summer long, their rooftop beer garden sets the tone for a relaxing night. Not to mention- the classic pub has happy hour specials that covers up to 30 local drafts any given night alongside their hefty food menu.
Detroit City Distillery- Eastern Market
Hidden on the outskirts of Eastern Market, this sprit focused joint highlights craft drinks to the fullest extent. Using fresh juices made in-house, ingredients, and innovation- it’s hard to find a joint that can beat out the flavors over at DCD.
Batch Brewing Company- Corktown
There’s no better way to cool off from that summer heat than drinking a beer slushy. This small nano-brewing company has an ever-changinglist of beers for you to tap into and a food menu to help sober you up.
Bad Luck Bar- Capital Park
Looking for a high priced experience? Check out Bad Luck Bar’s innovative cocktails that come with unique parings such as candy cap mushrooms to pop rocks…that is if you can find the place. This gem of a location is hidden away in an alley, concealed to passing patrons.
Second Best- Brush Park
This location isn’t technically open just yet but with Grey Ghost’s Will Lee behind the bar, we have real high expectations for this place. Opening up across the street from the Grey Ghost location, Second Best will be another great addition to the Brush Park area.
3Fifty Terrace- Downtown
If you’re into rooftop bars and nightclubs, 3Fifty Terrace is the place for you to be. Located on top of the Music Hall Center, you’ll get a 360 degree view of the city while chasing a buzz.
The Royce Detroit- Downtown
If craft cocktails or ice cold beers aren’t your thing- no worries. We have a fix for that as well. The Spanish style wine bar has dozens of different brands for you to try by the glass. In addition to the substantially large selection, the bar also serves charcuterie and cheese to help you fully appreciate the full bourgeois experience.
Townhouse Detroit- Downtown
With their all year round outdoor seating, Townhouse Detroit gets a little cooler in the summer when they open up their convertible glass panels. Besides from their full menu, check Townhouse’s ginormous whiskey selection, I mean, if that’s your thing.
