We’re starting off the D-Tour season with 4 amazing stops that our guests will be sure to love.
We need to make sure that our participants are able to wet their whistle as soon as we crossed the border, so our first destination will be the Temple Bar. The bar was started in 1927 by the current owners father. The building still features its original curved mahogany paneling and handrails along the bar. Here’s a great story about it in the Detroit Free Press.
From there, our magic school bus will be heading over to Nancy Whiskey, a mainstay in Corktown which has survived prohibition and a fire in 2009. In fact, it holds one of Detroit’s oldest liquor licenses at over 115 years!
From there, we’ll roll on to an icon for Detroit police officers and firefighters for over 90 years, Abick’s. Much like Nancy Whiskey, Abick’s is located right in the middle of a neighbourhood.
Finally, we’ll be visiting a bar that might not be on many people’s radars but is sure to be a great time: Jumbo’s. The bar has been open since the 1940’s and is one of the few remaining relics of the Cass Corridor’s not-so-nice days.
There are still tickets available in the WindsorEats shop for $40 per person. It’s going to be a great time!
