The Whitney
    4421 Woodward Ave., Detroit, Detroit; 313-832-5700; thewhitney.com
    Fancy dinner? Check. Historic home? Check. Ghosts? Check, please! Lumber baron David Whitney and his wife, Sarah, died in this house, and rumors that it's haunted have persisted. For nearly three decades, folks have reported seeing apparitions, hearing clanging dishes when no one is around, and having their place settings mysteriously rearranged. While beautiful and well-maintained, the mansion is spooky AF: maybe it's all those giant paintings of young hooded girls with eyes that burrow into the soul. Stop by for a drink in the Whitney's aptly named Ghost Bar to see for yourself.
