Beautiful alpine atmosphere, casual to classy. Family dining. Closed Monday.
Jacoby's has been a favorite downtown Detroit eatery and hangout since 1904. The main floor dining area retains that classic appeal, but many don't realize that Jacoby’s hosts live music from lots of local bands in its upstairs lounge. Call for scheduled acts.
Richter’s Chalet is a throwback to those days before the Food Network, celebrity chefs, Neiman Ranch and Maytag blue cheese allegedly transformed American gourmands into gourmets. And its price structure also recalls another era when two people could enjoy dinner and drinks for $40. German-born Roland Richter Sr. founded his half-timbered restaurant a generation ago, the chalet seats 150 and serves a dozen German dinners, supplemented by several daily specials, both of which include soup or salad, averaging around $12. The desserts, none of which cost more than $3, are another one of Richter’s strengths. Chocolate cheesecake, hazelnut raspberry torte, and the classic schwarzwaelder kirsch torte (Black Forest cherry) are executed well.
The Front is a mainstay in downtown Berkley, doubling as an American biergarten as well as a martini lounge. Patrons can choose to enjoy the Old World charm and laid-back style of the downstairs or to chill out in the '50s-style lounge upstairs, where live music plays every weekend.
"The Dakota Inn Rathskeller is the only remaining true ethnic German restaurant in Detroit. It is the type of classic German Rathskeller or Biergarten that was a mainstay of German immigrant community, and still has the very best German cooking in the city."
Since 1933, Detroiters have gotten their fill of bratwurst at The Dakota Inn, which offers a Bavarian style menu in an old Heidelberg atmosphere. Serves up three different types of schnitzel. Gift certificates are available. Reservations are recommended for Friday and Saturday.

New York-based DJ-production duo Designer Drugs apparently clocked up more than 300,000 air miles in the past year, highlighting the fact that these two men are as busy as almighty fuck right now. The album Hardcore/Softcore is set to drop, and the guys (Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson) have been remixing everyone from Mariah Carey to Thieves Like Us. They’re nothing if not in-demand, and one listen to “Dead Meat” will tell you exactly why. They offer uncompromising, heavy and kinda nasty club tunes that have an industrial edge and a touch of punk too. Got to love that combo.
This multimedia performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art could be a great way to get into alignment for a weekend of electronic music. The headline act is Chromatic Jackie, a collaborative ensemble is made up of a dancer, a musician and a visual artist. The trio, which recently made its first live appearance at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, mixes computer-generated visuals from artist Dana Bell, sound fragments from Sam Consiglio (formerly of Adult. and Tamion 12 Inch) and movement from dancer Sari Nordman, all choreographed to an original sound piece written for this project. James Marlon Magas will perform as Magas, and the guy has been making music since he was in avant-rock bands Couch and Lake of Dracula in the early 1990s. He’s gone on to become an electronic solo musician with releases on the Ersatz Records label. Between performances, super-popular DJ sets from Disco/Secret and Macho City.
