Voted best karaoke bar by Hour Detroit magazine three years in a row, Royal Kubo complements amateur entertainment with an extensive menu of Filipino fare and liquid libations. Appetizers and entrees such as lumpia shanghai, topping meat eggrolls with sweet-and-sour pepper sauce ($8.95), and pansit guisado, a mix of bihun rice noodles, pork, chicken, and shrimp ($10.95) please palates. Diners can also sink sharpened mouth knives on yakitori chicken, marinated in teriyaki sauce and served alongside garlic-fried rice ($9.95), or dive into kalderata baka, beef tenderloin swimming among veggies in a tomato-sauce sea ($10.95). Halo-Halo, a colorful concoction of shaved ice, leche flan, tropical fruit, and ice cream allays post-dinner doldrums ($5). On warmer days, diners can enjoy meals on Royal Kubo’s wood-sheltered patio or enjoy a cocktail of courage at the bar, lined with hanging beveled glass lamps, before taking the karaoke stage for a rousing rap rendition of “Greensleeves.”

Dooley's Tavern is a sports bar with all the charm of an Irish pub. If you think it doesn't get any better than that, well, it does. There are three Dooley's locations throughout Detroit, meaning the chance to savor a Guinness or a locally brewed Michigan beer is never far away.

But this pub is about more than the pints. The food menu stands on its own with crispy thin-crust pizzas, half-pound burgers, and a wide selection of iconic Irish cuisine. Try the fish and chips or the corned beef sandwich, the latter a layered combination of toasted bread, Grobbel's corned beef, and swiss cheese. Dooley's claims it's the largest of its kind in the world; sadly, the sandwich is always eaten just before an official measurement can be taken.

Cousins Elias Hajjar and Nicholas Aubrey take yearly trips back to Lebanon to visit their family, but they can eat authentic Lebanese cuisine without leaving the confines of their own restaurant. With Gemmayze, which is named after a bohemian neighborhood in Beirut, they "wanted to create not only a menu that exemplified what's happening in Beirut and Lebanon right now, but we wanted to re-create the atmosphere,” Hajjar said in a Detroit Metromix article. “So the colors on the walls and ceiling are light and very clean and refreshing, and the menu reflects that as well.”

Inside the multi-level dining room, dangling lights twist like a strand of DNA above tables topped with shareable plates of hummus, grape leaves, and kibbe nayee—minced raw meat with bulgur and spices. Each dish is made from scratch using recipes that date back generations. Nearby, decorative palm tree appliqués cling to windows and a large brushed metal frame displays a variety of vintage forks, which can only be wielded by the rightful ruler of England. After dinner, patrons can move into the lounge and perch atop comfy ottomans and banquettes swaddled in rich fabrics while sipping wine or a cocktail.

Every morning at Tom’s Oyster Bar, chefs scrawl the day’s battered and grilled seafood specials on chalkboard menus suspended from the ceiling. In addition to that list of freshly caught fish, the chefs tout their commitment to fresh seafood by stocking their raw bar with oysters that are shucked to order and then gently scolded for hording pearls.

In the wood-accented dining room, companions can sip from dozens of draft and bottled brews and bask in the glow of flat-screen TVs, or retreat to the outdoor patio and take in views of downtown Royal Oak.

With a stage sturdy enough to bear the weight of standup comedy giants such as Jon Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld, and Ellen DeGeneres, Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle continues to cultivate talent to fill up its schedule. In the same way that it has operated since 1979, the venue employs a three-tier format for its shows: two locals, one up-and-coming and one seasoned, followed by a nationally recognized comic. This approach exposes audiences to new voices while comforting them with the promise of a recognizable face at evening’s end.
