Group-Friendly Restaurants to Host Your Get-Together

By: Karen Dybis | April 25, 2018

Places to eat with larger groups are planted all over the metro Detroit area, so finding a place to host your next group activity shouldn’t be too tough. Supper club and meet up culture is active in 2018, so if you are looking for a place to accommodate a few more of your friends, you’re in the right place. With book clubs, coffee dates and  brunchin’ being popular things to do; where do you go? The weather is finally getting with the program (we think) so with the sun shining you can catch up on all the things you missed during the winter months. Catch up on the nearest restaurant patio and check out this list that will accommodate you and all your friends.

Bogartz Food and Spirits
Detroit, MI 48224
Food and live entertainment is the perfect combo. Grab your friends, and catch up while watching the basketball playoffs. Or how about just meet up with your pals for happy hour on Friday and catch a live set.  An added bonus is that this is a family owned joint and everything is handmade with love. Did I mention they have patio seating?!

Black Pearl Ann Arbor
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
After 9pm this spot turns into a lounge setting with music, a dimly lighted atmosphere and great cocktail specials.  Black Pearl is the perfect place for after dinner drinks with friends where you can dance the night away. They have space to accommodate your typical party size but they also have space for social gatherings for up to 45 of your family and friends.  They even have video conferencing and monitors available for your next meeting.

Gaucho Steakhouse
Northville, MI 48167
If you are into buffet style, this is the spot for you. The meat is all-you-can-eat and sides are served family style making this perfect for a large group of friends. Plus they have long table family style seating available.

FOLK Detroit
Detroit, MI 48216
This is the perfect cafe to brunch with all your friends on a sunny weekend. Grab your sunglasses and sit outside with your handcrafted coffee drinks. The space is open but cozy with tables that can accommodate up to 6 with fresh and seasonal foods. Need a book club meetup spot?! FOLK will be perfect, just be sure to get there early as they do not take reservations. 

Los Galanes
Detroit, MI 48216
It’s time for patio dining and cold margaritas! Los Galanes has been a staple in southwest Detroit since 1967 and it is the perfect setting for all your friends and family. You can have your next meet-up over freshly made guacamole and chips.

Michael Symon’s Roast
Detroit, MI 48226-1907
Roast was named “Detroit’s Finest Steakhouse” in the area and we agree! Plan a special  outing in the “Window Room” or the “State Room”. With both private rooms elegantly decorated, all of your guests get access to exclusive menu and bar items. With spacious accommodations for 6-11 guests between the two rooms,  you can enjoy gourmet food and drinks made by executive chef Kirk Whittemore.
