New subterrain bar

A new underground cocktail bar is coming to Detroit’s Milwaukee Junction neighborhood. Located beneath Oak & Reel’s restaurant, The Upright is a cozy bar and lounge serving craft cocktails and small plates in an intimate and welcoming setting. Upon entering the bar, guests find themselves in a stylish and curious space, featuring timeless and eclectic design elements. The cocktail bar provides seating for about 30 patrons including small booths, tables and bar seating.  A well-rounded cocktail menu from bar manager Jacob Feitler features classic sippers as well as Upright originals. The drink menu pairs well with a rotating menu of Italian finger foods from Chef/Owner Jared Gadbaw. Gadbaw, who opened Oak & Reel in the fall of 2020, is a graduate of the renowned French Culinary Institute. He earned an international reputation in the cuisine of Italy and in the provision of amazing seafood. He captured the two Michelin Star for Marea in New York City and maintained a two Michelin Star ranking for nine straight years. 2921 E. Grand Boulevard, Detroit
