Blocks from Comerica park, after the game, dropped in for a drink. Absolutely empty, but the bartender guided us in, took our order, and served our beers, all without ever putting down the telephone.
The date on the bottle of Killian's was from a year and a half ago.
This isn't a bad bar, but it is freakishly desolate. Kind of like the bar in The Shining.
Not sure what to say here - this place is old, outdated, and dirty. Can't imagine why anyone would go here. I went only because I parked near there for Tigers game and thought "I've never been there". So I went, and I won't be returning.
The floors are uneven, the decor is from the 70's, and so are the workers, the food, the menu...
So many good options in downtown Detroit. Don't make this a place to go on your search for good restaurant options.
This is a weird little spot. Opened in 1925, owned and managed since 1983 by the same guy, a DTE engineer turned bartender, after it suffered a pretty bad fire that destroyed most of its original incarnation. Puzzlingly advertises that they charge $5 to use the restroom. I have not put this to the test. You can get Greek Hellas Pils and ouzo plus a basic menu of bar fare.
Wow! DO NOT GO HERE! A friend and I stopped in the afternoon for a couple of beers. We walked in and I asked the owner politely as I always am if they had a happy hour going on. He said every day is happy in a sarcastic manner. I had to use the restroom and did. came out sat at the bar and asked again with are the happy hour specials. The owner got beligrant and said I owed him $5.00 for using his restroom. I was like well I'm here to drink a couple of beers. He said give me $5.00 and get out. I told him to call the police then he just told me to get out. Unreal. 99.99% of the time my experience all around MetroDetroit has been fantastic. However, the flame at the Gaslight is dim and rude.
This place is subpar. Watered down drinks, terrible bar food, and an odd, basement bar ambiance. There's no central hearing system; rather, they have this oversized blower that blows heat into the room from what looks like a fireplace. The bathrooms were ice cold as if you are standing outside and there were no napkins or paper towels to wipe your hands on. The food was far worse than what you'd expect from a dive bar. Dry burgers, meatless chicken tenders, and undercooked fries. The only redeeming part of my trip was my friend's "fish filet" sandwich. We were skeptical based on the rest of our food, and even more skeptical when the "fish filet" turned out to be three individual pieces of breaded fish planks. The fish was surprisingly good and the tarter sauce was decent, but it was impossible to eat the dish as a sandwich. My friend ended up eating the fish separate from the bun.
Our entire group agreed that the place is reminiscent of your grandmother's basement with wicker style furniture,1970s leather bar chairs, and an old school liquor selection.
