The Corner Grill, Bar & Game Room and Detroit Axe hosts its grand opening on Wednesday in the space that previously housed Local Kitchen and Bar.

That restaurant's owners – Brian Siegel and Geoff Kretchmer – are behind the new concept. It includes The Game Room at the Corner, which holds a 27-seat bar and offers 1,000 board games like Jenga, Pass the Pigs, or Boggle.

"Couples and groups are invited to sit down at one of several dedicated game tables, or a couch around the fireplace, and pick a classic game or a more serious strategic title to make an evening of it," Siegel said in a press release.

Upstairs, Detroit Axe will provide 12 lanes that customers can rent individually for $35 to $40 for a two-hour tournament, or $20 per hour. Beyond that, it'll offer darts, shuffleboard, bumper pool, and arcade games. The venue is "metro Detroit's first wholly dedicated, competitive axe throwing arena." Staff will enforce a strict one drink per hour limit in the axe venue.

The Corner will serve "upscale versions of classic sandwiches such as a ribeye French dip along with more novel offerings such as a grilled cauliflower steak and halloumi pita. Entree salads include smoked chicken, cashew & kale, and Asian ribeye and ramen. Shared plates such as macaroni and cheese, smoked brisket sliders and a cornbread Skillet will also be featured."

The Corner's menu will be available in Detroit Axe. It and The Corner are located at 344 W. Nine Mile Rd.
