Elwood Bar and Grill in Detroit
Sandwiched in between Ford Field and Comerica Park is a uniquely restored art deco bar called the Elwood. Because it was in the way of the construction of our baseball park, it was moved to its present location on Adams and Brush and everyone's glad they saved this gem. It opened in 1936 on the corner of Elizabeth Street and Woodward from which they got the name El and Wood and put them together. The inside has a beautiful polished long wooden bar. In the summertime, people crowd around the picnic tables on the patio. From here, it's 56 steps to the ballpark to watch Miguel Cabrera hit a homerun. Only 39 days until they toss out the first ball!
