Just a mile or so away, and with lots of restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Corktown also has the old train station - soon to be Ford's new home.
Coffee shops, food, bars, and wine. Just West of downtown . I recommend Astro Coffee, Gold Cash Gold, Motor City Wine, Tacos El Rodeo, UFO factory, Hello Records, John King Book Store, and Ochre Bakery.
Has the nostalgic feel of old Detroit. Lots of amazing bars and restaurants along Michigan Ave.
Corktown: You are here! Detroit's oldest neighborhood and now Detroit's most artsy and still "true Detroit." Think established and well-loved restaurants and bars with some brand new additions as well. Brunch: Brooklyn Street Local - Upscale diner serving breakfast and some lunch items open-close…
“Downtown Detroit is alive! Many new shops, restaurants, clubs and entertainment are in our new Downtown. ”
“My advice is to start at the International Institute of Metropolitan Detroit 111 E.kirby . IIMD is truly one of the hidden jewel of Motown. Where the World cultures meet. The smiles of ethnic food runs to your nose in the same harmony as the great music from around the World welcoming you to the hall of Nations. People from around the Globe welcome you in their charming accents. Just ask for Nada Dalgamouni that will be glad to help in you in making your trip to Detroit memorable one. ”
“This bar has an amazing dive-bar feel to it, but also brings some of the best punk and rock'n'roll acts to it's stage. Also if you're into retro dance music, check their schedule for ThirstWave.”
