The Keep

Readers' Choice

140 Cadillac Square; 313-223-2626

Our readers may be familiar with the Keep. For months, it was the project of mustachioed bartender Evan Dawber, who cultivated his love of the cocktail in a Harmonie Park basement until he found a wonderful, eclectic spot with a patio and a basement in Cadillac Square. Dawber has moved on, but the bar still beckons downtown drinkers who want everything from a craft creation chosen from the chalkboard to tequila shots to a classic beverage like the Aviation.
