Gilly’s Clubhouse and Rooftop announced plans to open its doors next spring in downtown Detroit. The 10,000-square-foot complex is the vision of the late Nick Gilbert, who passed away early this year and was a major advocate for Detroit, including a long-time dream of bringing a sports bar to the city’s downtown.

With its tagline – “What’s not to like?” – the hospitality concept offers a multifaceted dining and sports entertainment experience in the city, embodying the true spirit of Detroit and its love for food, drinks and sports, project participants say.

“The opportunity to introduce an entirely new concept for dining and entertainment in Detroit invigorates me,” said Josh Lang, Founder of 7OH2 Hospitality and operator of Gilly’s. “We are bringing to market something that will captivate the senses of our guests and offer them an experience they cannot get anywhere else. I cannot wait to unveil what we have been working on next spring.”

Located at 1550 Woodward Ave., Gilly’s Clubhouse consists of two floors. The street level features a patio along Woodward, along with an indoor café and lounge with a mezzanine to host private events and large parties. A centerpiece attraction is a 120-square-foot TV wall visible from every seat.

The venue’s rooftop is a hacienda-inspired haven, offering a tequila tasting room and casual Mexican street classics, with taco service from an in-house, custom-built food truck. Overhead is a light industrial rooftop enclosure with year-round views of the Detroit skyline.
