Downtown Detroit Hot Spots

Share this:

Hey Detroit! I’m proud to call Michigan home after moving to the area less than 4 years ago. As a student attending Wayne State and being a part of the DDP Team, it’s become an excitingly unforgettable experience visiting, working, and eating in downtown Detroit. You can virtually hit every base of entertainment while coming down to Detroit! Here are some of my favorite spots:

  1. Huddle Soft Serve: A little walk-up ice cream shop that serves classic frozen custards. the perfect sweet treat after a long day (the chocolate is my favorite!)
  2. Offworld Arcade at Checker Bar: The perfect spot for a casual hangout with lots of cool vintage arcade games on the top floor and some good food downstairs!   
  3. La Lanterna: When I’m craving to eat some good Italian food, La Lanterna in Capitol Park is a staple. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant and staff always make it a welcome experience while dining.
  4. Detroit Riverfront: The riverfront is the place to go when you’re wanting to unwind and spend quality time with your close ones. I usually take in the waterfront views by renting one of the MoGo Bikes and cycling along the Riverwalk path. A quick detour to the Wintergarden located inside the GM Renaissance Center offers you a chance to eat and walk around their car gallery which is super neat!
  5. Dessert Oasis Coffee: As a student, I’m always on the lookout for some study-spots to switch up the vibes and Dessert Oasis is the place I gravitate towards the most. My go to order is their honey + cinnamon latte with a spinach feta pastry on the side!
