The HandleBar Detroit

Looking to cruise the streets of Detroit with 15 of your friends? The HandleBar takes you on a two hour tour of the city with stops at Campus Martius, Comerica Park, and Greektown, although you can tailor your own route if you’d like. You provide the drinks, but the ride does come with a chauffeur (cleverly named “The BarHandler”), and a stereo with a headphone jack so you can be the DJ of the trip. Be sure to check the calendar for available dates through December.  

The Detroit Cycle Boat

In its first year of operation The Detroit Cycle Boat has given guests the ability to pedal down the Detroit River while enjoying drinks with their friends. Take the pedal pub experience, put it in a boat and you have the gist of what the Detroit Cycle Boat has to offer. See the sights of the Detroit Riverfront while enjoying a two hour cruise with your friends. If boats aren’t your thing, you can always book a ride on DCB’s sister establishment,Detroit Cycle Pub, which allows you to drink, jam out to some music, or even enjoy a catered lunch or dinner while you ride around Detroit.

High Five

If you’re looking for a fun way to sightsee, eat some grub, or bar crawl your way through Ann Arbor, High Five can give you the night you’re looking for. The pedal pub is the perfect way to get a group together for a fun night and experience Ann Arbor. High Five has multiple tours available from the Brewery Tour, to the Craft Beer Tour, and even the Bookworm Tour. They’ll make sure that you’ll see the best that Ann Arbor has to offer. You can also customize your own tour to visit your favorite Ann Arbor locations.

Trolley Pub

The Trolley Pub is exactly what it sounds like: a pub on a trolley. Guests board the Trolley Pub at the Heidelberg restaurant and from there, can choose their own adventure. Enjoy the company of your friends and the cool refreshment from your drinks while you tour Ann Arbor, making the stops you want along the way. If you want to book a private tour, the trolley can take up to 14 people for a flat rate of $375, or individual tickets for $30, which group you up with other pedalers.

Remember to drink responsibly and plan ahead with a designated driver or take advantage of one of these local designated driving services.
