1. The Sugar House
October 7 marks a decade since the Sugar House stirred its first sazerac for the public, ushering in the craft cocktail era in Detroit and helping to (dimly) light the way ever since. The Detroit Optimist Society hospitality group’s flagship will ring in its 10th birthday with a party on the 7th, but when the back bar is this deep and the classic cocktail list reads like a Bible, you know the celebration is bound to last longer than just one night. If ever there were an occasion for too many French 75s, let this be it.
