Detroit has long been a hockey town (hence the nickname “Hockeytown”) so the options are plentiful. Although it’s hard to narrow it down, we’ve created a list of what we feel the three best sports bars to visit before, during, or after a Detroit Red Wings game. Although the list is numbered, it is too hard to say which is the best so see for yourself.
3) Hockey Town Café – Located next to Detroit’s Fox Theater, Hockey Town Café is one of the city’s leading sports bars to visit before, during, or after a Detroit Red Wings game. Although it’s not necessarily an unknown venue, it’s a Detroit staple and definitely worth mentioning. According to The Detroit Free Press, Hockey Town Café is “The best place in town to catch the faceoff, kickoff or tip-off.”
Appetizers start at $6.95 and entrées begin at $9.95.
The Hockeytown Café is located in Foxtown in downtown Detroit, next to the Fox Theatre at 2301 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI 48201.
