For some time now, we have been exploring southeast Michigan’s downtown areas, and now it is time to expand to Detroit’s many neighborhoods, starting with Corktown!
Corktown is Detroit’s oldest neighborhood, found just west of downtown Detroit. Founded in the 1830s by Detroit’s Irish immigrant population from Country Cork, Corktown was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and is designated as a City of Detroit Historic District.
Here, you’ll find your guide to a great day in Corktown!
Where to eat
A gastropub, Bobcat Bonnie’s is great for brunch, lunch or dinner. Brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and includes a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar.
Lunch menu items include the Bobcat Burger (topped with barbecue sauce, Cheddar cheese, bacon and onion rings) and Vegetarian Pasta (with seasonal veggies, angel hair pasta and white wine cream sauce).
This restaurant provides a cozy atmosphere with great fresh and local options. If you’re there before noon, try the Breakfast Poutine (with sunny-side-up egg and bacon or tempeh).
As for lunch, try Jay’s Grilled Cheese (with sharp Cheddar and homemade apple compote), or Roasted Vegetable Panini (with sweet peppers, zucchini, red onion, provolone and arugula walnut pesto).
Where to play
Take in some of Metro Detroit’s best musical talent, while enjoying a cocktail or some Cajun food from the kitchen. Upcoming acts include Howling Diablos (on Nov. 25) and Dear Darkness (on Dec. 5).
Buy, sell and trade at Hello Records, where you’ll find vinyl recordings from the 1940s through the 2000s. If music is your thing, you’ll feel right at home sifting through the bins to add to your collection.
Enjoy your time exploring Corktown, and stay tuned for our next adventure in Detroit!
