    Bourbon Bar

    I am heading to Detroit in a few days for business. Anyone know a quality watering hole in the area?

    Check out The Sugar House on Michigan Avenue in Corktown. Great craft cocktails with some decent bourbons. Two doors down is Slows BBQ, very popular, good food.

    The Oakland in Ferndale has some nice pours.

    I forgot to mention, Slows BBQ generally has a pretty nice bourbon selection. You probably won't see anything too obscure or had to get, but they have a nice and varied selection.

    Thanks for the help guys. Never made it to the sugar house but The Oakland does have some fantastic pours. Had an 18 year Willett wheater. Very Tasty.

    Woah, The Oakland has a Willet 18 year Wheater? Looks like I'll have to pay a visit next wee as it's right down the road from my office. Thanks for the heads up!

    Glad it worked out for you, always find that to be a nice occasional stop.

    By the way they also had a 21 year Willett wheater. Didn't try that one. The 18 year was fantastic though
