Restaurant Description

Centrally located in Detroit's Eastern Market district, Bert's is an unpretentious nightclub that highlights seating for 150, a great view of the stage, a bright and colorful atmosphere and a comfortable and relaxed outdoor patio. Accompanying the uncommonly stellar sounds is a very reasonably priced "soul food" menu. The chicken wings, catfish and ribs, with its award winning sauce, figure prominently.

But the centerpiece, first and foremost, is the music and Dearing keeps some of the best musicians in town under his employ. Bert's Marketplace has been showcasing the best in local and regional jazz talent since the late 1980s.

“It is not unusual to see and find that all the finest musicians in town eventually come here to jam. Martha Reeves is a regular. Wynton Marsalis sat in with our house band and played for two hours one night. Branford Marsalis, B.B. King, Chaka Khan, Betty Carter, Danny DeVito, James Carter, even Boy George showed up one night.� (as reported by allthatjazz.com)This is truly what makes Bert's, “THE PLACE WHERE LEGENDS MEET�.

There is nothing like taking a trip to Bert's on a Saturday. You have a front row seat to Eastern Market and people watching!

Karaoke is performed by a local cast of characters, who are entertaining and serious about their craft!

Sit down grab a beer, enjoy the entertainment and have some great bbq. There is never a dull moment at Bert's!
