Best Bar Before a Red Wings Game

Anchor Bar

Readers' Choice

450 W. Fort St., Detroit; 313-964-9127

This bar has a lot going for it: the memorabilia on the walls, the history of being a bar for Detroit's journalists, the pleasant family-run vibe, the small but welcome parking lot, the commodious room in back for large gatherings. They always add a little something special, such as the tray of pickles and other trimmings you get with your burger. Another draw, at least for the time being, is its proximity to the puck, which helps pack the Wing-nuts in. A Motor City classic.
