Blues on Broadway

If you’ve made your way down Broadway Street recently, you might’ve noticed a new hot spot at the corner of Gratiot. Blues on Broadway is a new Detroit blues bar with a “taste of New Orleans soul” that’s definitely worth checking out.

The former Dirty Jersey location has been transformed, a project that Broderick Tower‘s own Chester and Judy are involved in (kudos!). Every day is Mardi Gras at Blues on Broadway, with purple and gold decorations adorning the walls and bright blue lights line the stocked bar.

The products are imported from New Orleans, including N.O.’s own Abita beers. And with a chef also from New Orleans, you know the cookin’ is authentic. The menu is packed with Cajun and creole food classics such as poboys, gumbo, red beans & rice and more.

Guests are treated to a live blues band from 6pm to 9pm daily, and the entertainment is top notch. Happy hour is from 5pm to 8pm each day with $5 martinis and $2.50 beers on special.

Blues fans also won’t want to miss the Best of Detroit Blues Concert and Festival at Bert’s Entertainment Complex in Eastern Market in Detroit. Originally scheduled for this weekend, the event has been rescheduled for November. Check their website for more information dates to follow.

Blues on Broadway is located at 1315 Broadway St. in Detroit, two blocks southeast of Broderick Tower. They are open Monday through Saturday with doors open at 4pm.
