CHOOSE FROM 250 WHISKEYS AT STELLA'S
One of Grand Rapids’ great hidden gems is Stella’s Lounge, a bar that manages to combine upscale and retro into one unassuming location tucked away downtown. If you’re a true whiskey snob, look no further, as they have over 250 varieties available, including some Michigan-made options. While their website may joke that “the soup of the day is whiskey, no crackers,” they actually have some amazing food options, such as their giant cheese-stuffed burgers, named Best Burger in America by GQ in 2012. The kitchen stays open till 1am, so it’s a great option for after-drinks eats. While you’re relaxing with your whiskey after polishing off a massive burger, you can also play one of their many vintage arcade games, where plays still cost just 25 cents.
