Basement parties went out of style with Afros and bell-bottoms, right? Well, everything has come back around at Detour, where Christmas lights dangle from the ceiling and ’50s college-football-team portraits hang along the brick walls. The juke grooves with Coltrane and Norah Jones. For even better sounds, come for the sizzling evenings when live jazz bands, like the Dan Stein Group, are in the house.
