Restaurant Details

Founded in 1989 by three brothers Adam, Steve, and Ted who are musicians themselves. They decided to build a club that was designed for ROCK-N-ROLL.

The brothers have collected a large amount of memorabilia over the years from autographed records and posters to vintage guitars and used it all to decorate the interior of the club.

When you enter the I-ROCK it is a walk down ROCK-N-ROLL memory lane. No where else in Detroit can you catch Leif Garrett, Faster Pussycat, Missing Persons, LA Guns, Foghat, Corey Feldman and the drummer from Blue Öyster Cult’s other band, all in an intimate club setting. If you are a staunch fan of music from days past, catching one of these bands can be a blast. Hell, the I-Rock is your chance to catch upcoming bands up close and personal, unobstructed by trend-trawling hipsters. What’s more, the drink prices won't bleed your purse dry, the PA is first-rate and the bar personnel eschew attitude in favor of friendliness. In short, the I-Rock has a corner on nostalgia and D-town is a better place for it.
