Places to Get Drinks To-Go in Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has given the go-ahead for carry-out drinks. Here are some local bars, restaurants and breweries offering adult drinks to go.

Four drinks lined up on a counter

2020 has been the pits — and I don’t know about you, but I could really use a stiff drink from my favorite watering hole.

While local bars in our area remain open, bars and restaurants in northern Michigan were ordered to reclose after a resurgence in cases of COVID-19. As a compromise to these closures, Gov. Whitmer gave the green light for bars, restaurants and breweries across the state to offer carry-out adult beverages.

And that’s perfect for local parents who don’t feel comfortable going out during the COVID-19 pandemic, so here are some spots in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor where you can take her up on her offer.
