Whites not welcome
If you've ever seen animal house, then you are familiar with the Dexter Lake Club. This is the Detroit version. The bartender had his back to us, saw us off the bar mirror, and never turned around. It was like a anti-staring contest. We sat there for 10 minutes, and the place was dead silent confused by the presence of white guys. A look around made it clear that we were not going to be served. That's fine, I'm sure the owners/patrons feel they have carved out a spot for themselves, so be it. There were plenty of options. Head to Jacoby's next door, or any other number of bars a block or two over (Beaubien St.) or just further west of the river (Shillelagh, Marilyn on Monroes, Forans).
