- Part of the Mike Ilitch empire, this upscale downtown sports bar is located in the same building as The Second City Comedy Club, across the street from Comerica Park, and it capitalizes on the frenzy over Ilitch's Red Wings hockey team. It is garish and gaudy, with the world's brightest video screen and ticker scroll outside, along with a gigantic hockey puck and images of Wings legends. The inside is massive, memorabilia-choked and always crowded. The beer is cooled by a seven-inch-wide "ring of ice" and the food is uneven, eclectic and more varied than the usual sports bar fare. The largest rooftop deck in the city hosts reggae bands on summer weekends. The bar is open Monday to Saturday from 11am and Sunday from 12pm.
