Humuhumu’s description

Mutiny Bar opened in Southwest Detroit in November 2017 by Dave Kwiatkowski's Detroit Optimist Society bar group. The bar's vintage wood paneling is in place, topped with some added bamboo and thatch touches. The decor includes fish nets with colored Christmas lights on the ceiling, tiki and nautical pieces hung on the walls, and a selection of framed vintage menus from the area's mid-century Polynesian restaurants. The team of bartenders has been playing with tiki drinks in the Detroit area for years, and the menu is mainly focused on their own tiki-inspired creations.

Its a little out of the way from Detroit downtown in Mexican town. The area is a little sketchy but its safe if you are smart and dont wander around drunk.

The name, drinks and decor are good. Its worth a visit if you are in the Detroit area. The vibe is muddied by the music and crowd. Since El Club is a popular music venue a few blocks away, I feel that the bar tries to cater to those leaking from the shows. The menu is all tiki drinks. The selection on the menu does try to appeal to the uninitiated but there are plenty of choices for experienced tiki fans.

The House Shot *tastes* unbelievably great, not “takes”.

Leo, Devin, and Jane have put together a great tiki bar. The decor is great - a wall of classic tiki bar menus framed, lots of glittering lights & upside down umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, plus an impressive hammerhead shark. They’ve worked hard to add so many wonderful touches of tiki decor - lots of tikis, a sailing ship in the window, great custom sliding cases holding more alcohol than first meets the eye, and the patrons were very friendly. It could use a little more curb appeal so you don’t pass it by, and while they don’t serve any food or bar snacks, they let you bring in whatever food you want. They have several unique drinks but make sure you get their very own House Shot (Banana Bread) which is served with a show of sparks and takes unbelievably great!
