Packed with sports fans year-round and party types on hot summer nights, this hulking, three-floor bar takes its moniker from the nickname given to Detroit during the Red Wings recent glory days. It’s located across the street from Comerica Park, home of the Tigers. (The Red Wings play a mile away in Joe Louis Arena.) Sporting events of all sorts are broadcast on 63-inch plasma TV’s found in abundance on the first and second floors.
Tip: Free parking is advertised for lunchtime, but if a sporting event is going on nearby, that deal vanishes.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
