Best Bar to Meet Someone

The Sugar House

2130 Michigan Ave., Detroit; 313-962-0123; sugarhousedetroit.com

On a recent night out at the Sugar House — a Prohibition-style "speakeasy" tucked somewhat inconspicuously next to that one barbecue joint in Corktown — a millionaire housewife and a punk rock drummer met at the bar. A New Orleans jazz duo helped set the scene and, after a couple well-crafted sazeracs and something else that was lit on fire before being poured, they pulled their chairs close and kindled a connection that could be described as intoxicating. If potential lovers pay as much attention to each other as these bartenders do the drinks, then life at this house shall forever be sweet.
