The crowning feature of the renovated Park Avenue hotel is the wood-and-brass interior - it's upscale, but the atmosphere is inviting enough to make this one of downtown Detroit's ultra-hip hangouts. Live music on Mondays and Thursdays adds to the excitement, but every night is hopping here. Open for lunch and dinner.
