The pour is good here, the burgers as ordered. The crowd is mixed, more to the side of gay men. Staff is attentive for the most part. A couple of the bartenders favor those they know and often overlook others who were at the rail...More

Friends and I were really looking forward to checking this place out. Got there about 11 15 on a Saturday. It had about 4 people in there. Thought we would have fun amongst ourselves anyway since there were 6 of us. What a buzz kill....More

We struggled to find places in Detroit that cater to the LGBT community, and I'm glad we came across Briggs through the recommendation of another bartender. This is a sports bar with a nice roof deck-- I doubt anyone would know from face value that...More
