Detroit, Beyond Detroit



Plan to stay right in the heart of the city at the Aloft Detroit or Westin Book Cadillac hotels for your bachelor party in Detroit. Get in a workout at Detroit Body Garage or sweat it out at the Detroit Schvitz. Stop by a classic barber shop like Detroit Barbers in Corktown or Ferndale for a hot shave or haircut. You’ll be ready for a night out.

If you guys feel lucky, try out the slot machines or elbow up to a table at one of the city’s casinos. Each one – MotorCity Casino, Greektown Casino and the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino – has its own vibe.

Would you rather dig in the record bins at shops like Hello Records, Found Sounds, Third Man Records or UHF? Make time to pick up some vinyl, then visit the historic Motown Museum. Catch your favorite musicians at the Fox Theatre or The Fillmore.

Feeling active? Rent kayaks on Belle Isle and venture out onto the Detroit River. Feel the need for speed at the new Lexus Velodrome. Love automotive history? Both the Detroit Historical Museum and The Henry Ford offer look at Detroit’s iconic past.

When the guys get hungry, head to Buddy’s Pizza for Detroit-style pizza. We recommend the Detroiter, of course. Don’t leave without taking the Lafayette vs. American Coney Island challenge for best Detroit Coney dog. Dine top notch at Roast or snack as you wander Eastern Market.

Take a local distillery tour. Taste your way through whiskey, gin and rye at Two James Distillery, Valentine Distilling Co. or Detroit City Distillery. If craft beer is what your crew craves, hop from the ample tap list at Midtown’s HopCat, to the bar and packed shelves of 8 Degrees Plato. Try a sour ale at Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria & Brewery and sip a Ghettoblaster at Motor City Brewing Works. Stock up on your favorites as a souvenir.

Faygo, Vernors and craft beer aren’t the only beverages made famous in Detroit. Stay caffeinated with stops at Astro Coffee, Ashe Supply Co., The Red Hook or Great Lakes Roasting Co. to keep you motivated.

Catch a game in The D — no matter what season it is. Plan a bachelor party when the Detroit Tigers are set for a home stand at Comerica Park or when the Detroit Pistons or Red Wings are scheduled for a game at the brand new Little Caesar’s Arena. If you’re more of a football fan, check out Ford Field for a Detroit Lions home game – it’s Sunday Funday at its finest.
