Bookies Tavern

The Book Tower is my favourite building in Detroit. There is a certain haunting beauty about it. Last night after Karras Brothers we went down to Bookies Tavern on at the base of the Tower. I do believe it is my favourite in Detroit yet. It is swank but down to earth and filled with pretty and fashionable people. They had a live band last night and cover was only $3. There is a pool table, a patio, and a guy on the grill on the patio to satisfy a late night craving for a really great cheeseburger or hotdog. Also, the city looks so great from the patio, with the top of Comerica Park visible just beyond Grand Circus and the new old-style lamps flooding the streets in blue.
