Detroit By The Numbers: Detroit’s Bars and Restaurants [MAP]

If you ask Jeanette Pierce, the executive director of the Detroit Experience Factory, where to grab a bite or a libation, she’ll have an answer.

For a decade she’s tracked the growing number of bars and restaurants in downtown Detroit. Now, she’s adding the neighborhoods.

She shared her list with WDET, and we made a map.

Oddly enough, as of today, there are 313 establishments downtown. Get it, 313?!

Jeanette will join WDET’s Sandra Svoboda on Detroit Today to talk about the growing number of places downtown, how she’s tracking them in the rest of the city and a few of her favorites.

Also, tell us if we’re missing any! On Twitter: @WDETSandra or @WeKnowDetroit

To track how many you’ve been to, visit the Detroit Experience Factory for the Downloadable Checklists.

WDET is putting Detroit’s urban — and suburban — data myths to the test, separating fact from fiction.  

Detroit by the Numbers is produced by WDET 101.9 FM and is powered by the Detroit Journalism Cooperative. Support for this project comes from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Renaissance Journalism’s Michigan Reporting Initiative and the Ford Foundation.
