Hot Spot: Sugar House


Published:

SUGAR HOUSE // Named for a Purple Gang hangout, this retro cocktail lounge in Corktown is drawing crowds who appreciate classic drinks precisely mixed from fresh juices, infusions, and premium liquors served under twinkling crystal chandeliers in a building that actually predates the Prohibition era, re-created in its high-ceilinged space. In a neighborhood already a destination, thanks to Slows Bar BQ and Astro Coffee, this is another slam-dunk.

 2130 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-962-0123, sugarhousedetroit.com. 5 p.m.-midnight Tue.-Thur. and Sundays, 5 p.m.-2 a.m. Fri.-Sat. Closed Mon.
