Lyft is the defining transportation of choice by all those without cars or without designated drivers. Here are Lyft’s six most-visited places in metro Detroit.

The results of the Lyftie Awards are in and it’s pretty clear where metro Detroit likes to spend their time. Out of the six most-requested places, four of them hail from Detroit, one is from Dearborn, and the other Royal Oak. There were six most-visited categories.

Feel free to sit back and have a few. You can always just call a Lyft!

Top Restaurant

Selden Standard

It has been called a “farm to table classic” and The Detroit Free Press was even voted it The Free Press Restaurant of the Year in 2015. Selden Standard specializes in locally sourced, seasonal, fresh meals. You can find them at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Selden, just south of Wayne State’s campus, two blocks west of the Fisher Music Center.

Top Bar

Hop Cat-Royal Oak

A Michigan chain favorite, this bar specializes in its wide craft beer selections and their legendary “crack fries.” If you eat one, you’ll understand the name. Is it the seasoning or the cheese sauce? Do we really ever know what fuels addiction at its core? They also have 100 taps, so…

Top Event Venue

Little Caesar’s Arena

This arena, formerly The Palace, is so awesome Google even wants to be there. Aside from housing all of the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons games, this fresh venue is also the place to be for concerts and entertainment. Come see a WWE match, Trans-Siberian orchestra, or Cirque de Soleil in the upcoming months!

“Only in Detroit”

The Qube
You can only find this place in Detroit! The Qube was previously known as the Chase Tower, the Bank One Center, and the National Bank of Detroit Building. It is a high-rise office building and Quicken Loans operations center. Find it at 611 Woodward Avenue, in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. You can call it the “cheese grater.”

Top Trending Destination

The Detroit Institute of Arts

The DIA is one of the most prestigious art museums in the world. Who knew it was also so popular? Only anybody who’s ever been there. Diego Rivera’s mural greets so many and the place is always packed to capacity for events and tours. See their expansive Andy Warhol exhibit until February 2018! Even the architecture is art.

That concludes the 2017 Lyftie awards. Some were obvious. Little Caesar’s arena is the biggest venue, so naturally it would attract the most Lyft users. But there were some shockers. I couldn’t believe Hop Cat would be the most popular bar with so many new and innovative craft breweries in Detroit. It must be those crack fries…
