This is kick ass brewery with great food. Have the Cubano sandwich. It's as good as anything you'll find in Miami. Really fantastic gumbo as well. Can't go wrong here and only a couple blocks away. One of the fun things about it is it's community seating and they have an entire bookshelf of board games to play

Haven't had the food here yet but the reviews are fantastic. It seems that it's a little pricey. However, the drinks are spectacular. The bartenders all honed their cocktail crafting in some of the best bars in Detroit, New York and L.A.

KICK ASS SANDWICHES. Ok, there are other things as well, and there's a quaint outdoor patio, but the sandwiches are where they really shine. Don't worry, there's a full bar too.

Old School Steakhouse usually with a live jazz band. Expensive but worth it.

Drinks & Nightlife

This is the first bar in Detroit that really focused on craft cocktails. Have some truffle popcorn and you can get some charcuterie, but it's really about the drinks. Can't go wrong here.

This is in an alley that's right by Standby (also a good spot) but the Skip is much more laid back and has more space too. That, and the food there from either the cart or behind the bar is amazing. The former Exec Chef at Standby now runs the food at the Skip and it's really spectacular.

This is great for a long walk, run or bike ride. Highly recommend taking a bike down the riverwalk to this. Then you can end up in Eastern Market

Essentials

This is the closes grocery store and is also a Mexican market. You can get the best guacamole and salsa here. Also, there are pre-marinated meats for tacos, grab a bag of tamales, and stock up anything else you'd need for a stay in the D. Some of the freshest and most economical produce in Detroit as well.

This place has local farmer's veggies, etc., as well as a coffee shop. Nice local place walking distance from the condo.

Always a good idea to see if anything is at the Fox when you're coming in town. It could lead to an awesome experience. One of the most beautiful theaters in the world.

Getting Around

Look up mogodetroit.org for a map of all the locations in the city. The nearest one is on Brooklyn street just across Michigan Ave from the condo. Take a ride along the riverfront to the Dequindre Cut and ride to Eastern Market along that old rail line that has been paved.
