“You can build your own gourmet hot dogs with options of nearly 50 toppings. This large vintage oval bar from the 1940s is a hip neighborhood spot. At 9 PM the space turns into a concert club with a cover supporting a lineup of local and touring musicians. It does a trivia night on Monday, and has some other unique programming as well. It is a fixture of the Gordon Square area of Detroit Shoreway. ”

“Nighttown is the real deal. It’s a real joint where, if you were lucky enough to be there, you could have sat in front of the Count Basie Orchestra so close that the trombone would’ve bopped you in the nose. Or maybe you saw Freddy Cole, Jane Monheit, John Pizzarelli, Brian Auger, Ann Hampton Callaway, Tommy Tune, Basia, Cyrille Aimee, Esperanza Spaulding, Dick Cavett, Dick Gregory, Eliane Elias, Renee Rosnes, Stevie Wonder or John Legend look you right in the eye as they sang or spoke from just a few feet away. ”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant

“Hippy-dippy, crunchygranola, tie-dyed style vegetarian restaurant; a Cleveland tradition! Enjoy a stroll down Coventry road while you're there. Park in the garage right across the street, make sure to put some quarters in the meters. The real yogurt malts are delish! So are the falafels, the hummus, the extra crispy fries (ask for them special) the tempeh reuben (The Delaney) etc...”
