Elwood Bar & Grille in downtown Detroit

Gorgeous little eatery in downtown Detroit that was located not far from where I was staying.  My first day in Detroit, Ernie and I took off on foot to explore the city.  Best way to see downtown is by walking even though my legs were absolutely killing me at the end of the day.  It was all worth it as I snapped some really fantastic shots of old Detroit.  We kept up our pace so I didn’t get to walk into this place which I now regret.  I was so taken by the architecture of this building.  This place was built in 1936.

It was early in the day so I didn’t get a chance to see the neon sign lit up.

Love this shot of the back of the bar & grille.

    This is a really famous Detroit place from back in the day. If I’m not mistaken, it was moved to this location from its original location though I don’t remember where that was. I could be wrong about that but we passed it so many times on this trip and someone who still lives in Detroit told me that. Food is supposed to be fantastic and God knows the place is classic. I tried to eat there everyday but never had enough time.

      Love that it was originally right across the street from the Fox! I would’ve eaten there for sure that I realized that. Well, there’s definitely another chance when I go back to shoot pickup footage, which should be within the next couple months. I will most certainly keep you posted.

      I’m with you on the Monte Christo.
