Best Bar for Classic Cocktails: Firebird Tavern

419 Monroe Ave., Detroit; 313-782-4189;

Slightly off the beaten path of Greektown, the Firebird rightly takes its symbolism from Detroit's rise-from-the-ashes heritage. The stylish old dark wood fixtures and natural brick walls give it a historic feel, making it just about the perfect place for a cocktail, so what you throw back will be a glorious throwback too.
