We had a great time on the tour. Even though I was already familiar with Detroit, I learned a lot of new things from the tour.

The tour was very informative and the 2 hour length with a break in the middle was a good length.

What You'll Get

Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Find an appropriate venue with today's Groupon, which gets you a delightful tour de bars with Inside Detroit, a nonprofit organization geared toward participatory exploration. Each three-stop tour, scheduled every couple of weeks, features a new theme that typically incorporates local events such as Jazzfest or Oktoberfest. Choose one of the following tours:

  • $5 for a $10 happy hour bar tour: 5:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m. (view schedule)
  • $7 for a $15 evening bar tour: 8 p.m.–midnight (view schedule)

Regardless of which tour you crawl along with, you'll be traveling under the flapping jaw and friendly wings of a veteran Inside Detroit guide. Along the way, your guide will help arrange personal time with each bar's staff and pull a few strings designed to shower you in a few complimentary surprises (complimentary surprises vary by tour and do not involve pulling shiny pennies from behind your ear). Fill your cranial cup with local Detroit history and culture while enjoying each brew house's distinct lineup of taps and tipplers. While you're at it, strike up a conversation with fellow tour goers, who may be presumed to have at least four common interests—bars, tours, stuff that is "pretty neat," and conversation.


Inside Detroit was featured in Crain's Detroit Business, the Detroit News, and on MLive.com.
