Rust Belt Market to open adjacent bar on July 15



Rust Belt Market is celebrating five years in business with the addition of a market bar, Revel Bar & Events.

Opening July 15th, the 5,000 square foot addition will offer Michigan craft beer, signature cocktails, wine, and specialty coffee to patrons.

Preparations for the grand opening are well underway, complete with a beer tower draught system.

A focal point of Revel is the 7-foot terrarium, seen in the picture below. Built by co-owner Chris Best, the feature is filled with carnivorous plants and poison dart frogs. You can virtually tour the rest of the market here.

Rust Belt Market co-owners, Chris and Tiffany Best, are "eager to plan community centric events as they continue to grow the small business community they've helped cultivate over the past five years with the addition of yet another facet to their unusual business model," according to a press release.

Here's a sneak peek of the bar:
