As one of the newest drinking and dining spots in the Grosse Pointes, The Whiskey Six features Michigan-made beer and spirits, a vast selection of fine whiskeys, and upscale pub food, ranging from shared plates and sandwiches, to pizza and entrees. The Whiskey Six are big whiskey fans -- which is why they offer 237 (you read that right) kinds of whiskey on their menu.
During the Summer there is entertainment on Thursdays as well as the Weekends. The rest of the year Thursdays is the entertainment night, where you can see the best in Blues, Rock, R&B Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana.
The Whiskey Six refers to the six-cylinder, big-wheeled Buicks and Studebakers that Prohibition-era bootleggers loaded with spirits and drove from Canada to Detroit over the frozen Detroit River and Lake St. Clair. An original 1928 Studebaker is the centerpiece of the bar's interior.
