Firebird Tavern is an authentic American tavern in the heart of Detroit's Greektown district that offers city residents, visitors and workers a lively and inviting place to meet, dine and drink. Located steps away from Greektown Casino and notable icons like Fishbone's and Old Shillelagh, Firebird Tavern is resurrecting food, drink and fun in a historic 1880's building. Featuring 40+ beers, a reimagined cocktail list, hand-selected wines and bubbles, along with a curated menu focusing on shared plates, fresh salads, sandwiches and burgers, Firebird Tavern is your destination for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and pre/post event gatherings. Come party with us on the weekends on our second floor as local DJ's spin dance music in a truly one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Private event space available for corporations, meetings, parties and groups from 5-200 people. Firebird Tavern can also cater your next event.
