A Score for Detroit: Gilly’s Clubhouse Debuts April 5, in Time for Tigers’ Home Opener

Gilly’s Unveils an Unparalleled Sporting Haven for Detroit Fans

DETROIT, March 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Gilly’s Clubhouse, a Detroit-based upscale sports bar where every seat in the house offers a front row experience, today announced it will open on Friday, April 5, 2024. The 10,000+ square-foot sports lover’s dream is located at 1550 Woodward Avenue and features a 120-square-foot television, unique Detroit memorabilia, and custom artwork from local artists. The menu includes classic American gameday fare along with healthy options. 

Gilly’s is named after Dan and Jennifer Gilbert’s son, Nicolas (whose friends affectionately nicknamed him “Gilly”). Nick passed away at 26 years old last May from complications related to neurofibromatosis. Gilly’s was originally the vision of Nick himself who worked on the project for the last couple years of his life.

Nick’s brothers, Grant and AJ Gilbert, have taken an active role in helping to bring Gilly’s to market.  Grant’s creative agency, Supper, has led the branding efforts for the sports bar, while AJ’s company, Jasper Promotions, created the venue’s merchandise and staff uniforms.

Reservations can be made online at the Gilly’s website starting on Friday, March 15.

Gilly’s Clubhouse’s opening comes just in time for two of Detroit’s biggest sporting events, including:

  • Detroit Tiger’s Home Opener April 5, 2024
    • Tailgate Party Starting at 10 a.m.

Sports, great food, creative cocktails, art, and entertainment – Gilly’s will offer it all. As Nick Gilbert often said, ‘What’s Not to Like?'”

The Menu

Gilly’s beverage program begins with a coffee shop cafe that will include classics and fresh-pressed juices. Gilly’s will also offer a wide collection of draft beers and specialty cocktails, inspired by Detroit. 

The menu will include grass-fed beef smash burgers, chicken wings, homemade mac and cheese, fresh salads, grain bowls, turkey meatballs, and more.

The Design

Gilly’s interior is designed by Coeval Studios, drawing inspiration from Detroit’s past and present with rich wood paneling, curated art, striking interior details and relaxed modern furnishings. Vintage elements combine industrial aesthetics to bring together old and new, making every inch of space part of the Gilly’s experience.

Curated Artwork

Gilly’s reflects Detroit’s diverse history and community. Among the designs are original works by locally based artists. Tyrell Winston has contributed multiple pieces, including an installation featuring Nick Gilbert’s signature. Detroit artist Davariz Broaden has also created an original painting for Gilly’s. 

The Clubhouse opens on Friday, April 5 at 10:00 am. Normal hours of operation will be Monday through Sunday from 11:00 am to 2:00 am. Gilly’s Rooftop, offering Mexican street fare, is expected to open later in the spring.
