Yelp’s top 10 cocktail bars in Metro-Detroit 2018

We’re excited to announce our first ever Yelp’s Top 10 Cocktail Bars in Metro-Detroit!

With the holidays just around the corner we think it’s the right time to shed a light on all those tasty spots that can help you get through the holiday hullabaloo. We’ve made a list and we’re tipping it back twice.

Here you’ll find everything from local distilleries to fancy date night spots and of course, maybe a house-made mixer or two. Check out our list and let us know what you think! Did one of your favorites not make the list? Or maybe you think our data nailed it? Let us know on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram with #YelpDetTopBars, and be sure to write a review to add your feedback about any of these spots.

Oh, and we’ve also partnered with our friend Nick Britsky of Nick Drinks to go inside the top 5 bars to film the bartenders creating a fantastic bevvy that you can get right now on their menus! You can check out all those videos below.

Methodology: This is a list of the top cocktails bars in the Greater Detroit Area in 2018 according to Yelp. All of the businesses on this list are in the Cocktail Bars categories on Yelp and are places that primarily serve cocktails. “Best” is measured using an algorithm that looks at the number of reviews and star rating for a business over the past year.
