Venue Info

For over 80 years, The Dakota Inn has been Detroit's go-to for authentic German tastes: hearty schnitzels, Bavarian bratwurst, charcuterie boards, and the signature Rathskeller Reuben Soup. As if the extensive list of German brews (ranging from rotating drafts to a plethora of bottled options) wasn't enough to attract the masses already, live music on the 80 year-old piano, nightly sing-alongs lead by a brave soul willing to step up and belt out drinking songs about the schnitzelbank while standing upon it, and regular community events (themed cookouts, Oktoberfest rituals) combine to make the cavernous beer hall a consistently lively outpost.
