205 W. Fifth Ave., Royal Oak; 248-591-9226
Let's start with the obvious. O'Tooles is in Royal Oak, which is pretty much the best city to turn 21 in — bar central, amirite? But O'Tooles stands out as a solid place to get wasted legally for the first time. A casual public house with an Irish-American bar menu, O'Tooles is part shitshow (we mean this in the best way) with its party vibes and part sophisticated gathering spot with its stone fireplaces. In other words, this is the perfect place to make your official transition into adulthood.
