Time Out says

Entering Cliff Bell’s is like walking onto the set of a Fred Astaire movie. The sultry Art Deco jazz club first opened its doors in 1935 and—after extensive renovations in 2005—is now one of the places to see and be seen in Detroit again. Grab a happy hour cocktail at the gorgeous mahogany bar (preferably a ‘Tiger’s Tail’ or ‘Mudlark’), or make a dinner reservation and enjoy the evening’s live jazz ensemble as you peruse the excellent menu (the spicy duck wings are our hot tip).
