Established in 1978 The Post Bar has been a cornerstone of the Detroit landscape for fun times and celebrating everything Detroit. Since then, The Post Bar has had over 33 years to eat, drink and get it right. The popularity spread from the cozy downtown haunt of thousands to 3 locations around metro Detroit. The philosophy is the same but each location has it’s own theme, energy and is wonderfully unique in its own regard. The post bars celebrated their 30th Year Anniversary in August of 2008, but on the scale of throwing a great party, The Post Bar is ‘29 and holding’!
The Post Bars’ resilience in an industry where fad bar concepts have a shelf life of three-five years is attributed to a time-tested “stick to the basics” business philosophy. At the heart of The Post’s 30 year success is an enduring commitment to customer service, a spirit of excellence, and innovation that brings guests back again and again. The multi-award winning Post has introduced weekly specials and a new, innovative menu with unprecedented daily specials that include fifty-percent savings on your entire food bill on Monday’s, $5.99 daily lunch specials that include a 22oz beer of the month and $1 Beer specials on Wednesdays.
Among many awards, The Post Bar has been voted by Real Detroit as the Best Bar Before A Piston’s Game, Best Bar Food and Best Sports Bar, to name a few of their many accolades, the bars have all had a facelift over time, allowing them to age more gracefully, with new twists on classic American fare, live music during the spring and summer, and updated TVs, bar tops and dance floors! So if it’s dining, dancing, or drinking Detroiter’s are looking for, they need look no further than one of The Post Bars near you including: Auburn Hills, Novi, and Detroit.
Detroit - established 1978
1978 was a very special year for Detroit residents. The Post Bar opened at Congress and Cass and quickly became one of the hottest spots in downtown Detroit. Owned and run by family – blood related and not - The Post was the place to kick back, put up your feet and let the music and drinks take you away.
With Joe Louis Arena just around the corner, the Downtown Post was, is, and always will be the best place before or after a Red Wings game. Not to mention that it is also a favorite among the Red Wings players and opposing teams’ players. The Post is so much a favorite, in fact, that the Stanley Cup has made numerous trips to The Post Downtown and we’re pretty sure it had fun!
We’re not certain if it’s the graffiti-covered walls, or the bar’s ‘anything and everything goes’ attitude, but people come from all over to visit one of Detroit’s oldest drinking establishments. From Brighton to Clawson, Royal Oak to Port Huron, they come to experience The Post and all the memories that it holds.
