It’s Grammy week, and the only thing that gets me more excited than seeing Adele beat every bitch AGAIN, is a trip to Motown. Home to divas like Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Diana Ross, and of course, Aaliyah (may she rest in peace), I knew I would fit right in!
Lock your doors, lower the blinds, and fire up the smoke machine….no but really, lock your doors. Gigi’s is in a not so great part of town, but the drag show alone is worth the risk. Venture upstairs after the show for some dancing and fabulous people watching. Gigi’s 16920 W Warren Ave, Detroit MI 48228
Any bar where Madonna once danced with the best of em’, is a must see stop on our divas tour. Menjos is a hot see-it-and-be-seen gay bar in Highland Park.
