Northern Lights Lounge Detroit, Michigan Review
Being new to the Detroit area, my fiancé and I wanted to take a few friends out and enjoy a night on the town. We have heard quite a bit about this little place called Northern Lights Lounge. Walking down the streets, in other eateries, even at the grocery stores sometimes I would just so happen to hear about this so called “NLL”. After my ears had just about enough of hearing it, we decided it was time to check this place out. It literally was calling our name like a little person whispering in my ear.
The outside of this place is quite nice. Somewhat of a tavern, hipster kind of feel. The inside of the bar feels very warm, swanky, and relaxing. They have a great patio area outside great for a group to have some sexy cocktails. Speaking of drinks, their mimosas! Incredible! You can order a great amount, sharable even, for ten dollars. Yes, I’m not kidding. Their others drinks are to die for as well. Their Bloody Mary’s were my finance’s favorite.
The food was a whole other thing. I would describe it as simple yet delicious. It’s nothing spectacular. Their new brunch times seem to be getting a lot of buzz, which was actually really delicious. The prices are definitely fair and nothing is over priced.
They have awesome did bits that just makes this lounge, the place to be. I haven’t been but I heard all about it from a mister and his misses sitting next to us. They had been coming for years. NLL offers Trivia on some days, live music, and shuffleboard.
Service can be a little tricky at times. Inside you are sure to get served. The servers are really awesome as well, upbeat and very friendly. Now on the outside patio, getting a waitress to help you after you’ve downed your peach martini, can get a little difficult. They help at times but I would suggest to order your drinks straight from the bar and walk your happy self back to your seat. It’s way easier and less of a hassle for the waitresses/waiters.
All in all, Northern Lights Lounge is unbelievable. And you will only understand me if you go there. Its just one of those places where you can befriend the bartenders and waiters. Thanks to Phil, he really made the visit fun and exciting. The staff will remember you and the drinks you enjoyed. It’s an awesome atmosphere. You can easily lose track of time here. This lounge is a place you’d want to come back to and according to my fiancé, the bathrooms too. The experience, drinks, and ambiance, pulls you in and you just fall in love with it.
