This trip was great. Going to Detroit was an early birthday gift to myself. (Solo Travel) Despite Corona closing everything down I got to relax and sight see. Detroit has plentiful art and driving around looking at that took up majority of my days. I left on a Thursday night and came back Sunday Morning.
I got to visit the Motown Museum and go to Studio A where some hit records were made and produced. That was a chilling sensation to be able to visit that and learn the history behind the music we listen to and have been listening to.
Detroit's downtown is usually popping from what I would hear from locals. Greek town is located downtown and full of bars and food!! i got to visit Loco bar where they had $5 margaritas and an unlimited amount of flavors me and the bartender became friends and I became her guinea pig. I had about 4 different drink pairings and they were all great. I also got the chance to visit Belle Isle, The Heidelberg Project and Eastern Market. Bell Isle is a relaxing little island where you can fly kits or have a picnic date or anything of that sort I just relaxed in the car and watched the birds. The Heidelberg Project has to be the coolest thing ever. It is a street full of art that was created by individuals in the community and it is so abstract and different. I truly would like to have been apart of the process of creating it just because of how beautiful it is. Eastern Market would have been a sight to visit but it was closed, the street art is amazing though I drove around for an hour trying to find different art. They also have a street market on one side of the street. Places to visit if you get a chance
Bakers Keyboard Lounge
The Heidelberg Project
On my list of foods I had a million places to try but limited time I definitely did not get to eat at all of them hell not even 1/4 of them but I did try Saucey Crab and Cafe Muse. Saucey Crab was not saucy i would not recommend the food tasted like oil and bad seasoning. Cafe Muse was great and filling I had a waffle with fresh fruit and eggs with a Peach Bellini. Some places I wanted to try but did not get the chance are:
Chili Mustard Onions
Detroit Vegan Soul
Detroit Pho & Crab Restaurant
North Bar & Grill
I did not get to go to any clubs being that everything was just now being mandated to be closed so I spent the nights riding around the city catching the views and seeing what the city has to offer. But there are some clubs I googled while out there that may have been hype.
Club Truth Detroit
Woodward bar (LGBTQ)
views bar and Grill
North Bar and Grill
Duo Restaurant and Lounge
Aside from not being able to do everything I intended. I managed to make this trip happen sporadically. Literally a week before my departure date is when i bought my ticket, rented the car and booked the hotel. Thanks to my new coworker Jardan for saying go girl go! I spent $700.00 on the trip I am sure it would have been more if things were to have been open but luckily for me I got to experience all that was meant to experience.
