Detroit Night Life

Nightlife in Motor City unlike any other
With so much focus on music and art, it's no wonder that Detroit's nightlife offers everything from edgy nightclub experiences to classy performing arts concerts. This city is second nationally in the number of theater seats it offers. Among U.S. theaters, only Radio City Music Hall in New York City is larger than the Fox Theater in the Detroit Theater District. You'll also find high-quality performances at Wayne State University's repertory theaters. If it's performance with an edge, check out the action at Planet Ant Theater and Matrix Theater. Other popular theaters include the Detroit Film Theatre at the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Michigan Opera Theater, and Orchestra Hall. Detroit also has an ample supply of professional sports, including the NFL's Detroit Lions, Major League Baseball's Detroit Tigers, the NBA's Detroit Pistons, and NHL's Detroit Red Wings. By now you're no doubt asking: What about the food? Good question. Detroit has answers, offering a wide range of American, Mexican, international, and ethnic restaurants, cafes, and fine dining. Among the favorites is Johnson's Southern Kitchen, serving up some of the Detroit area's best soul food. For some great Italian food, try Giovanni's Ristorante. How about a flaming fajita? Look no further than the Mexican Town Restaurant. Other eateries you won't want to miss include Blue Star Café, Bourbon Steak, and Morning News Café. Now you're ready for a few nightspots. A few popular stops include Bleu Room Experience, Plan B Nightclub, and I-Rock Nightclub. To experience a classic American city, put Detroit on your business or vacation planner.
