We know we know not everyone celebrates Valentine's Day but if you do we wanted you to have the low down on some of our favorite spots and shops in and around Detroit. There is a little something for everyone no matter your taste.
We came across this booth last year at the Vintage Market and have been following them ever since. They have the best smelling vegan bar soaps and soy candles around and they look so unique. The Black Collection is definitely something that will have your guy smelling and feeling great. But wait there is more, does your guy have a beard? They have a Beard Oil line that is made with a blend of plant based oils that will leave his beard and skin moisturized.
With two convenient locations one in Corktown and the other in Ferndale it should be no problem to book your guy an appointment. Detroit Barbers offer a modern feel with that old school vibe. They have a wide variety of services from a cut, a beard trim, line-up, a straight razor shave or even a service called the barber facial. Let's not forget something to take home like The Beard Box or The Grooming Kit. Guy's like to get pampered too!
Looking for something more laid back? GDS is something you should definitely check out. Located on West Lafayette in Detroit this is a bar/restaurant with a wide variety of drink and sliders (even vegetarian!) on their menu. The perk, everything is 3$ or less. Sayy whhhaat! Yes, every drink and food item is 3$ or less. I can't wait to check them out myself.
Maybe you're looking for gift for your guy that he can put in his man cave or bar for when you entertain. HUGH is definitely the right spot for you. They have everything ranging from modern furniture, bar accessories and things for the home. They have an old hollywood vibe that any guy would love to bring into their hangout spot.
Last but certainly not least book yourself an evening at the Detroit Foundation Hotel. This hotel lives in Detroit's former Fire Department Headquarters, 100 rooms of pure beauty. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. Reserve a spot at the chef's table or spend the night in The Apparatus Room bar and lounge. As stated on their website historic yet modern, a great way to end your evening!
Happy Valentine's Day!
