This Royal Oak bar is not a newcomer to our Best Of Detroit list. Our readers designated it the "Best Place to Celebrate Your 21st Birthday" last year, and this year, they told us, "wait, that's not all." Turns out, Fifth Avenue is virtually a one-stop shop when it comes to Oakland County nightlife — there's more than 40 HDTVs for watching your sports team of choice, a huge dance floor, and a great menu to boot. Plus, it's one of the few spots that offers two floors to see and be seen. Fans of Fifth Avenue love that they don't have to travel to a big city to get a taste of its nightlife.
