The Story Behind The Skip’s Lipstick Stained Walls

The downtown Detroit bar has finally found itself

The Skip

The Skip is a chameleon of sorts — continually shedding old iterations of itself in favor of ones closer to its true spirit. “We finally look how we’ve always felt,” says The Skip’s bar manager, Kyle Marks, of its most recent renovation, which completed in April courtesy of Detroit-based firm Mother of Pearl & Flower Design.

The new space has moody floral wallpaper, dim neon lights, and lipstick kisses planted across the bar’s coral walls. “Our final day of remodel we invited the whole crew to take part in our little kissing booth party. Our guests have been adding more every day.” The adorable bar will inspire you to leave your mark, too.
