"The atmosphere at Charlies Too is very frindly. Our walls are decorated with a wide aray of Harley Davidson gas tanks. We have a killer bike night on Thursdays during the summer. A great time any night of the week!"
Bar and grill, great food, big TVs.
"The Comet bar is one of the best neighborhood bars in Detroit. In the summer months we have an outside tiki bar where you can enjoy horse shoes or volley ball. We are located within walking distance to Comerica Park, Ford Field and many other downtown attractions. So come on in and enjoy the game or just relax and have a drink. This small, dark bar is a great place to bump elbows with the folks who keep Detroit's Cass Corridor neighborhood filled with tales to tell."
Burly Eastern Market butchers chow down at this joint when they finish work. Big burgers, daily specials, stuffed chicken breasts, baby back ribs, whitefish and smelt.
Meat's the word.
"Your basic dive bar, a great place to hang out with friends. The jukebox plays everything from Hank Williams to the Sex Pistols. That's probably why it was voted 'Best Jukebox' five years in a row in our very own 'Best of Detroit.'
Serving up breakfast till noon on weekdays and till 3 on weekends,
Honest John's is sure to keep you going, with Bloody Marys and Ghetto
Blaster Ale and a full bar at any time of day. As many as 30 to 40
people can sit outside, complete with Waspinators to keep your eating
adventure clean and fun. Note: The badass jukebox plays funk and
Motown, and can be heard out on the patio.
"Live music Friday and Saturday. Wanna-be rock stars welcome Wednesday and Thursday it's karaoke time! Real rock stars, Tuesday night at open jam. No matter what day of the week, Jimmy's has THE BEST burgers in Detroit."
A quintessential neighborhood dive, a shockingly multicultural establishment and a vehicle for fun, Jumbo's Bar is a staple of Detroit culture, a place where the beers and the truth are served cold and straightforward, or, something like that. Stop in and see!
Though it's a quiet old-man bar on most days, the spill-over crowd from Slows Bar BQ and the pre-party crowd from nearby dance shindigs makes it a memorable stop for bar-crawlers in the know.
The New Dodge Lounge, a Hamtramck live music destination features local and National acts in the rock and roll, indie, alt. country and punk rock genres.

Alternative hip-hop has never been better, that is, since the reunion of Jurassic 5. Following their 2007 break-up, it was a quiet six years for Jurassic fans, until the boys reunited for last year’s Coachella festival. After playing a few shows together, Jurassic 5 announced their “Word of Mouth Reunion Tour” earlier this year, complete with a Royal Oak pit stop. If their new song “The Way We Do It” is any indication of what’s to come for the group, fans have a lot to look forward to. In the music video, the boys, sounding better than ever, go stomping through Colorado’s infamous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the dead of winter. Wrapped up from head to toe, they throw down lines like they were never on hiatus, showcasing their ceaseless talent.
The Hard Lessons will be hitting the stage at Magic Bag this Saturday in celebration of their newly released album Arms Forrest. For these Detroit natives the release of Arms Forrest brings about a change for the band with songs ranging from raw-guitar to slinky-dance-groove tracks. All-in-all, their transformation proves for a great show full of heart and relatable lyrics that are sure to tug at the heart strings of any Detroiter.
