Detroit’s restaurant and bar scene is making waves nationally as some call it one of the best places to dine and drink anywhere in the country. A few new places have emerged on the scene recently, adding to all the incredible new developments popping up throughout The District Detroit. 

The Royce, a friendly new wine bar, and Rusted Crow Spirits, a cool new bar and restaurant serving their own distilled spirits, are both located in the ground floor of the Kales Building facing onto Grand Circus Park. The Royce and Rusted Crow Spirits are open now adding to a growing list of bars and restaurants in the Columbia Street neighborhood.

Detroit resident Angela Rutherford envisioned The Royce as a neighborhood destination. In planning, she decided her concept would be successful in Downtown Detroit where more and more young entrepreneurs are finding an easier path to success.

“I’ve been keeping tabs on what’s been happening in Detroit for a while,” said Rutherford, a native of the Flint area. “It really has the creativity and inspiration that I’ve been looking for.”

The Royce and Rusted Crow Spirits join several amazing existing bars and restaurants in the Columbia Street neighborhood such as Cliff Bell’s, Centaur Bar, Town Pump, Park Bar and Da Edoardo’s Foxtown Grille—not to mention, the area’s incredible venues such as the Fox Theatre, the Fillmore Detroit, Little Caesars Arena and Comerica Park.

The exciting mix of new restaurants and classic favorite spots throughout Detroit is one of the many draws of the city.  On your next visit take time to visit the Royce and Rusted Crow – two very tasty additions to The District Detroit and the city’s newsmaking culinary scene.
