Baker's bills itself as "The world's oldest jazz club," and, in the club's 76-year history, almost every jazz musician of national importance has played its bandstand. Baker's complements the music with some amazing down-home cooking, their catfish being a true showstopper. Live entertainment nightly, with metro Detroit's finest local musicians every weekend.
Anyone can show up here. Detroit's only late night jazz club serving up Cajun catfish and red beans and rice all night long. It's not common to find a bar where everyone seems to know each other and yet newcomers don't feel excluded. Dozens of regulars turn up Thursdays for the open mic jazz jam sessions. Bert's serves the music fans bargain-price soul food from rows of steam tables: meat and two sides for nine bucks, or up to $25 for a whole slab of ribs. In keeping with Bert's bare-bones, working-class atmosphere, their food is more down-home than much of the soul food you find in restaurants, which has often been upgraded from its humble origins.
Historic Detroit jazz club.
Stepping into the newly restored art deco live jazz bar with an even more recently opened kitchen is to arrive in another era. Before the stage, the main area is separated into two spaces: One with round, candle-lit tables, the other, a stunning curved bar. All this sits below massive barrel-vaulted ceilings. All this ambience comes from pricey restoration work done in 2006 to make today’s Cliff Bell’s look like the Cliff Bell’s of 1935. That and the way they mix a cocktail. Neither cheap nor fast, mixed drinks are crafted old-school, more for taste than ease of production. With everything from a standard fillet of beef tenderloin to cassoulet, the French-inspired eclectic food menu speaks for itself. Try the duck confit on a buttermilk biscuit with cranberry jam for a small plate reduction of Thanksgiving dinner. Hedonists will go for a chunk of tender braised pork belly (otherwise known as bacon when cured and smoked) that comes plated with a rich, spicy sweet cider sauce, roasted fingerling potatoes and a pinch of cracklings for good measure.

The Dirty Dog is another feather in the cap of Gretchen Valade, the entrepreneur and philanthropist whose generosity and love of jazz saved the Detroit International Jazz Festival. Chef Andre Neimanis' sophisticated tapas-style menu encompasses unusual dishes that showcase his creativity. Musically, the Dirty Dog has some of Detroit's best players, with piano sets from 4 to 6 p.m., followed by two evening shows with full bands. Willie Jones, the general manager, is visible in the front of the house, overseeing service and keeping the whole show running smoothly.

You can tell by the bottlenecked line of glimmering Jags, Beemers, Mercedes and SUVs lined up for valet parking that this is a nightspot where the Motor City’s elite come to meet. The food’s OK, but that ain’t the point; it’s the tailored clientele and top-shelf booze that really sets Flood’s apart. And when the band kicks on, the place really starts to thumpin’. Precaution: Don't wear jeans and flip-flops.

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.
