    This was my spot for years. Every party I had was at, included or began at Motor City. I considered it my bar. I am sad it is leaving us. Probably a new douchey spot will come in. Much ♥ to the owners

    The "bartender's choice" shot was surprisingly amazing. These ladies know what they are doing!

    As a native detroiter the signs to the seats to the Vernors makes you feel right at home! Just wish they would also serve Detroit beer

    I'm at some bar called the motor city bar. Detroit vibe but nothing really like the city.

    This place smells kinda bad. Maybe it's just tonight but it smells like a bathroom. So.

    Not Detroit at all. Bar tender is a Bitch. Stay away. Go to a New York bar or go to Detroit. This place is rude and without character.

    You want to hear rock and blues tracks you have never heard.... this is the place. Get the Shazam app on your iPhone, because you'll need it.

    At 3:30am I lose a $20 on the floor, as I'm looking for it the girl bartender is screaming "PAY OR LEAVE BITCH" I put $20 on the bar I owed $6 she gives me $10 in change. Tipping yourself is stealing.

    Channel your inner-gearhead and check out this Detroit-themed Lower East Side hangout. How many Chevrolet signs and memorabilia can you spot on the wall?
