349 Monroe Ave, Detroit; 313-964-0007;

This Motor City staple was opened in the 1970s by a retired Detroit police officer who was raised in Dublin, and it's since become cemented in the city's drinking tradition. Seemingly everyone has a tale about a night at the three-story Celtic funhouse, which is often described as a "can of Pringles ... you can't have just one beer," and we are far from surprised readers have bestowed it the accolade of Best Bar in Wayne County. Because if there's one thing that makes a bar great, it's the stories people tell about it after they leave.
