1. Thomas Magee's Sporting House Whiskey Bar 1408 E Fisher Fwy, Detroit, MI 48207

Donning a weathered, old-timey look, this young bar carries a whiskey-heavy beverage menu of over 100 different brands of the brown liquor, bottled brews, and a few beers on tap. There's not much food apart from salted nuts and chips, but the easygoing management will let you bring in outside food. Flat screens play "every sport, every game, every fight" and, while there's not much in terms of trendy foods or cool crowds, Magee's purist's mentality keeps the crowds coming during and after all sports events.

2. R.U.B BBQ Pub 18 W Adams Ave, Detroit, MI 48226

Tons of local Michigan brews, 30 TVs, and close proximity to Grand Circus Park make R.U.B. a great place to stumble into after a Tigers game (or to stumble from, before a Tigers game). Plus, a bunch of great BBQ dishes!

3. Slows Bar BQ 2138 Michigan Ave, Detroit, MI 48216

From the award-winning and rightfully TV-famous Yardbird sandwich to the 100+ beer selection, this pork-packed mainstay has thoroughly earned all the attention it gets. The Cooley’s (who own the place) have done almost as fine a job boosting other businesses in Corktown as they have boosting the average local waist size.

4. The Manchester Pub 546 Ouellette Ave, Windsor, N9A 1B7

Just on the other end of the Detroit Windsor Tunnel, The Manchester is an English pub with a mix of European and American drafts, TVs to watch the game, and specials like two-for-one wings on Thursdays.
