I will be honest, when we first pulled up I really didn't want to get out because the area looked a little questionable. After surviving my mini panic attack I went inside and was absolutely astonished at the set up and the tour was quite...More

Nice location, right in front of the old train station on Michigan Ave. Very friendly staff and well-crafted cocktails. The tour was very interesting and only took about an 1-1 1/2. They take you through the distillation process and you have the opportunity to sample...More

We stopped here after the Eastern Market and found the staff to be very friendly. They listened to what we liked and recommended some wonderful spirits. My wife had rosemary’s drink and she said it was terrific. I had a couple of whiskeys on ice,...More

The atmosphere is great and alive at Two James-typically. The was killed last night when I asked the bartender for a recommendation on drinks...what are some drinks that you like to make or that Two James is known for. She replied with attitude—nothing, I pushed...More

Two James offers a "tour" which I would categorize as more of a tasting. A tour involves observing the fermentation vats, and the idle distill and bottling station. The best part of the tour is the interesting Detroit history and the alcohol production facts that...More
