After making thousands of laps around the metro Detroit area each year, popular rideshare service Lyft knows a thing or two about Detroit.

For its fourth annual Lyftie Awards, Lyft shares the locations of some of Detroit's most popular drop-off destinations. Broken down into categories like Most Visited Bar and Most Popular Brunch Destination, Lyft shares the destinations most requested by Detroit-bound riders. See the most popular Detroit hot-spots below:

The Most Visited Bar – Apparatus Room
250 Larned St, Detroit, MI 48226

Adjoining the boutique Foundation Hotel, Apparatus Room is a fashionable bar and restaurant with high ceilings, tasteful decoration, and a casual lounge area that makes it great for a nice meal or a nightcap.

Most Visited Music Venue – Ford Field
2000 Brush St, Detroit, MI 48226

In 2018, the 65,000 capacity football stadium hosted A-list music acts like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and a co-headlining performance by Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Located in the Chrysler House, Dime Store is a popular downtown destination for booze and brunch.

Most Visited Late-Night Restaurant – Lafayette Coney

Greektown's close proximity to a large variety of dining, drinking, and of course gambling, makes the neighborhood a no-brainer for late-night traffic.
