Even if a bar is decorated to feel like a winter wonderland, it still might feel artificial because you know the decorations are only temporary. With Cadillac Lodge, you walk right out of the cold into a tavern that's been set up just for the season. Definitely check this place out if you're looking for things to do in Detroit this winter.
This lodge is arguably one of the coziest spots in Detroit right now. It's become a winter tradition in the city and people come from all over the area just to warm up inside with an Irish coffee.
