Known For

Happy Hour

Built in 1894, this rose marble mansion is not only a beautiful, historical landmark, but also a fine dining restaurant (think afternoon tea and beef wellington) that houses the Ghostbar, an upscale lounge on the third floor of David Whitney Jr.’s Gilded Age home. Getting it’s name from alleged sightings of Whitney’s deceased widow, Sarah, Ghostbar serves up deadly cocktails like The Witching Hour (a tart citrus drink rimmed with sugar) and the Boulevardier (the Detroit answer to a Manhattan), and offers a variety of quality beers on tap as well as a stunning wine menu. Every weekday evening is happy hour which features an unbelievable discount on the admittedly pricey menu, live piano music, and occasional oyster specials.
