Whether you’re in the mood for a fancy cocktail or just a nicer beer, Detroit has a wide variety of options.
One of the best bars in detroit spirits is Jolly Old Timers, a bar that’s hard to find unless you know where to look. It’s hidden in the basement of a Victorian residential house and you have to be a member of their social club to get in.
Another upscale spot is Grey Ghost Detroit, a neighborhood eatery and beer and cocktail bar located at 47 Watson St. With four stars out of 673 reviews on Yelp, the restaurant and bar is a local favorite for those looking to indulge.
The Apparatus Room, a cocktail and New American restaurant located in the downtown Detroit Foundation Hotel, is another top choice. With four stars out of 558 reviews on Yelp, the restaurant and cocktail bar offers atmosphere, wine and cocktails.

Empire Kitchen & Cocktails, located at 1907 Woodward Avenue in Midtown, is another great option. With five stars out of 97 reviews on Yelp, the restaurant and restaurant bar offers modern cocktails and food.
There’s a lot of local inspiration here, with some dishes based on Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails, the 2016 Free Press Restaurant of the Year. And the restaurant’s interior owes a debt to Central Kitchen & Bar, located downtown.
Standby, located in the heart of Downtown Detroit, is a modern cocktail bar that uses innovative techniques to create dynamic beverages while honoring and paying homage to classics. Its dinner menu also features locally sourced bar food.
