Went to Bakers to show some friends a good time and I called about the dress code was told no jeans or hip hop attire and we walked in and everybody had on jeans. They are very crowned and it they are cramming the people in. A lot different then I remember from the 80's and early 90's

My husband and I went here while visiting some family members in Detroit. The evening started at 9:30pm and we are early birds so we were reluctant when deciding to go out. Boy, are we glad we pushed ourselves out the door. Next time we're in town, we'll definitely go back! Here's a snapshot of what we thought of our... More

What all can I say about Baker's Keyboard Lounge? You may have noticed it in the recent rendition of the movie "Sparkle," but it is way more than a set location for me...it is a Detroit institution. I have sat in other countries and missed it. Something about the music, the people, the space is precious for me. That particular... More

Good food and great jazz. No better place on the west side for short ribs and jazz at the same place.

This is hidden Gem because its in a neighborhood that used to be very lavish and because most of the cities residents have forgotten about it and its history of entertainers that performed there in the past. Non-locals frequent more often than the locals however, they still showcase local as well as national artist. The atmosphere is one that only... More

Baker's Keyboard lounge is a classic jazz club - despite having lived in the Detroit area for 20 years I only recently went there with my husband, and was transported back to some of the best clubs in Philly and Boston I had frequented more than 30 years ago! The food is wonderful (though leave your diet at home), servers... More

My date and I, while visiting Detroit, were looking for an authentic jazz club. We heard about Baker's on TripAdvisor and decided to go. We were a bit intimidated by the neighborhood and the building's exterior, but were glad we went in. The soul food, helpful waiters, and eclectic music made for a great evening. We'll need to go back... More

Every comes here for music and so did I - it was a nice jazz evening, including the earlier karaoke/ open mic. The place as such is awesome. But the food and service... must have been a really bad night for us. No one approached us for the first 45-50mins, then we had to wait for the menus for another... More

Tiny Jazz Club near Woodward and Eight Mile has been around for more than 70 years. Fabulous fried chicken with delicious sides at a very reasonable price. The portions were so huge the 3 of us wisely share one order so we had room for the amazing peach cobbler. The Jazz set started at 8 but the Happy Hour singer... More
