Metro Detroit's Yelp Speakeasy Style at Cliff Bells!

Posted by Mariah C

On a fine Thursday eve, Metro Detroit yelpers got gussied up and gathered around at the fabulously restored Cliff Bells. This lovely setting offered a chance to step back in time, to an art-deco era reminiscent of supper clubs and speakeasies.

With three varieties of Valentine Vodka cocktails, yelpers enjoyed everything from sips of summer (and lemonade) to a Dirty Valentini. Cliff Bells showed off their menu items, including shrimp cocktail and crunchy-crumb-topped mac and cheese

Chicago's own Colleen C played (candy) cigarette girl, and several men of Yelp donned spiffed up suits.  The evening's prizes included homemade Handmade Detroit mitten-centric gift bags with items from City Bird, PropMod, and others. Raffle winner Dan R also scored a special Yelp-colored cocktail set.

Many thanks to the hard-working staff at Cliff Bells and all of the fab yelpers who came out to join in! Check out the recaps and reviews, as well as some amazing pics by photographer Doug Coombe.
