Cafe d'Mongo's Speakeasy
When you step into Cafe d'Mongo's Speakeasy it's like you've stepped into a 1920's speakeasy. If you're looking for a spot that isn't your average bar, you've found the right place. The interior decoration looks like a museum of Detroit memorabilia. Its walls are loaded with photos that harken to Detroit's underworld past, mixed with vintage photos of the Mongo family from the 1920's onward. Many celebrities have made the pilgrimage to D'Mongo's--Quentin Tarantino and Ryan Gosling .
The draw for most of the regulars here is the soul food! Chicken, ribs, macaroni and cheese, black eyed peas, potato salad all done just right.
Every Friday and Saturday night is live music with Carl & Co.
