Aloha Detroit

Lost River, a new tiki bar at 15421 Mack Avenue, Detroit, had their public opening in early June. Matt Mergener, the bar’s co-owner along with Karen Green, said both days went really well, with people dying to check out the tropical atmosphere – which includes a floral mural by local artist Ouizi – and interesting cocktails. “Tiki is a little bit more rum-based and there’s a lot of cool things you can do with it,” Mergener said. Needless to say, their full drink menu has a lot of rum on it, including seven classic tiki drinks, like Mai Tais and their already popular Painkiller, along with seven more with a Lost River spin on them, like a Moscow Mule made with passion fruit. There will also be shareable punch bowls and a variety of draft and bottle options. On June 13, the 1,000-square-foot bar began their regular hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 4 p.m. to midnight.
