If you don’t want to travel far from the arena, there are several great food options nearby.
If you have the kiddies with you, try Mike’s Pizza Bar. This family-friendly pizza joint has dozens of unique pizza items, including Detroit style pizza. Mike’s also serves up really awesome apps like the Tower of Meatballs—classic meatballs piled high and topped with tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese make for a sloppy, yummy bite after the game.
Although you can take the little ones to Bakersfield too, this tasty taco spot is an even better choice for a large adult crowd. With over 100 tequilas and whiskeys, Bakersfield has great drinks to kick off the rest of the night.
Harry’s Bar and Grill is a raucous sports bar sure to be a cool place to celebrate or commiserate with other fans after the game ends. They have your classic bar food and cheap drinks to keep you company if you want to continue to watch sports for the rest of the night.
Lastly, if a Pistons game was your idea of a date night, keep that great energy going by heading over to the legendary Cliff Bell’s. Enjoy live jazz and high end, delicious food in this highly-acclaimed musical venue. We recommend the Maine lobster rolls or one of their reserve steaks.
