What establishments around town are the best of Detroit? Sure, there’s a list – but there’s also a great party that happens every year. And that party is thrown by Hour Detroit.

This year, many places you may have heard of – like Ashe Coffee, Beyond Juicery + Eatery, Bistro 82, Buddy’s Pizza,Café Cortina, Donut Bar + Coffee, Griffin Claw Brewing Company, Love & Buttercream, The Morrie, Social Kitchen and Bar, Taste Love Cupcakes, Toast, Vince & Joe’s Gourmet Market, Vivio’s, Wright & Company, and Zoup!

All told there will be more than 30 eats and drinks at Joe Louis Arena. Below is a video from the festivities last year.

Of course, there’s more. It’ll be hosted by “The Great” Evrod Cassimy of WDIV Local 4 News and live entertainment from Ben Sharkey.

This ticket isn’t the cheapest in town – $100 for a general admission and $175 for VIP – but it does promise to be quite the event on Friday, June 23.

Limited VIP tickets allow early entrance into the event at 6 p.m. for a first taste of the winning restaurants’ selections. VIPs will also have access to the exclusive VIP lounge throughout the event.
