"Joseph Koolisky used to be Joe Kool's in London, Ontario, but now it has relocated to Troy. The interior decor, which cost more than $1.5 million, is dedicated to Detroit's industrial heritage, according to owner and general manager David Steinke. It has a handmade mahogony bar, brick walls, factory-sized pipes and ductwork, as well as 16 TVs and 5 satellites featuring sporting events. The menu features both American and Italian-style foods, such as burgers, pastas, grilled Italian flat bread and homemade soups."
"Located above the Garden Bowl, the Magic Stick is home to ten billiard tables, a full bar and lounge area, one of Detroit's best jukeboxes and in the last several years has become one of the nation's most acclaimed small live music venues, hosting great live bands from across the country and around the corner. When there's no live music, the Magic Stick is open for billiards and beverages until 2 a.m."
Fourteen pool tables, racing and other video games. Food from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Live music, a DJ, dancing, friendly people and a laid-back feel.
"Overtyme is a sports bar, it's a pool hall and it's a dance club. It's a little bit of everything fun rolled into one spacious bar and grill. A DJ keeps the dance floor packed most weekend nights, while other patrons can be found playing in the game room. All your favorite food is served late into the night. Overtyme has a good crowd of regulars and a decent-looking clientele. As an added bonus, there’s no cover, so this is a good place to hit without blowing your budget. Boasting excellent service and strong drinks."
"Lunch specials, happy hour specials, 19 pool tables, 8 sports TVs and a massive 100-inch big-screen TV ... what more could you want? Killer happy hour every day, 4-7 pm. 9-ball tournaments every Monday night: 6pm sign-up and practice; 7pm start time."
"Billiards, bar and grill and 30 pool tables! Five big screens for sports-watching. Great food every day; our kitchen is open late. 21+ only."
This is a fun pool hall for the ultra-hip. The eats are good too.

Atlanta’s Black Lips are on the road touring behind their newest release, Underneath the Rainbow, and their garage punk tornado will be touching down at the Magic Stick. Wild live shows, including vomit, chickens, fire and some decidedly distasteful nudity have given the Black Lips a reputation for being a must-see band. While they maintain the rawness that has always been present in their sound, their new album has a greasier sheen to it that gives the band even more flamboyance. Natural Child and Duane: The Brand New Dog will open the show.
Take a nine-piece band from Brooklyn, a raspy lead-singer from Ghana and the sounds of punk, jazz and swing, and you get a hybrid of sounds that can only be described as a cohesive mess. The formula works for Osekre & the Lucky Bastards, a band that has been described by New York radio station WBAI as “the new Fela.” This band is unlike anything that has come before it and might just be the start of a musical revolution that you surely don’t want to miss. What’s more, they’re stopping in Detroit for a free show.
Hockeytown is synonymous with good beer and good times, so why should the BrewHaHa be any different? The event starts by teasing the palate with a firkin happy hour, which will include three 4-ounce servings of custom brews made exclusively for the event. Following that will be an optional tour of the Joe and a five-course gourmet meal with beer pairings. In addition, MotorCity Casino Hotel is offering a special rate with complimentary transportation to and from the event.
The first DMAs were held in 1992, and since their inception, they’ve featured some of Detroit’s most notable artists onstage, including such national acts as Eminem, Kid Rock, Martha Reeves, Ted Nugent, Smokey Robinson and Insane Clown Posse. However, regional performers make up the majority of talented nominees, and the 2014 award season looks exciting with a promising list of performers in categories that range from industrial to R&B.
The San Francisco trio’s experimental, freeweheeling take on guitar-based pop (punctuated by frontwoman Satomi Matsuzaki’s crazed, childlike vocal delivery) has made them a favorite of the likes of Pitchfork for years. Call it art rock, call it no wave, call it indie prog, call it whatever — with every release the band attempts to sound completely different, and in that inconsistency they are nothing if not consistent (hell, the band is notorious for sounding completely different at the end of a song than they did at the begining). It’s fun, yet difficult stuff — right at home in an art museum.
live music, fabulous hors d’oeuvres, complimentary wine, cash bar, early buying opportunities. Plus see this year’s pristine vintage automobile display. Benefits the Detroit Area Art Deco Society.
