You work hard all day, and sometimes, you just can’t wait until the weekend to unwind. The good thing is, you don’t have to wait. There are a ton of happy hour spots around Detroit to check out and de-stress to clear your mind from a difficult day and power through the rest of the week.
1701 Cigar Bar on Wednesdays is definitely worth a look. 1701 is located in downtown Detroit on Cadillac Square and Randolph. On Wednesdays, the bar features Wine Down Wednesdays for business professionals to socialize and network with like-minded people and enjoy a sophisticated, sexy atmosphere. There’s a complimentary buffet drink specials and live music. Last week’s menu was barbeque ribs, chicken and mixed vegetables.
Get there early to take advantage of the half off drink specials and try the Pink Stiletto which was a crowd favorite.
Finally, groove to the live music, courtesy of Eric “Rain Man” Gatson and DJ Rick Flair, known together as The Formula.
And ladies, 1701 is not a “Boy’s Only” club. They feature a wide range of cigars that cater to a woman’s taste, including the Acid Blonde and Latte Surprise which pairs perfectly with a cappuccino. Also if you have a concern regarding the smoke, don't worry, the venue has sufficient ventilation to accommodate.
Tomorrow is Wednesday. I highly recommend wearing your “all-purpose dress” to work tomorrow and head straight to happy hour for Wine Down Wednesday’s at 1701 Cigar Bar.
