Some of the local bars in Warren, MI may become your next favorites. While there are many of them, I have frequented a few and found what I liked and disliked.
The first bar that I had ever attended is called Louie’s Bar. It is more or less a hole-in-the-wall place. The bar has changed owners several times and was, for a few years, closed down. It has reopened under a new owner and has become more popular than its previous open days.
While the prices are always fluctuating, the bar does have specials throughout the day and night on draft beers and mixed drinks. Due to the claim of the owner that selling pitchers of beer brings in less money when equaling what is spent on the kegs for it, the owner has recently stopped selling pitchers and now only sells beer in the bottle. Unless recently changed, the price per bottle can fluctuate from $2.00 to $2.50.
The bar is quite small and one may feel cluster phobic in the winter time. But it is very ideal for the warmer weather as they prop the doors open and it feels more like a party than a bar scene. The highlight of this is their karaoke which is held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday all year round. Equipment to run the karaoke is the best, the top of the line thus far. One doesn’t have wait a long time for their turn to sing their desired tunes for the people running karaoke is fast, efficient, and fair to all.
Louie’s Bar’s only downside is that there is no kitchen of any kind. While they frown upon having food delivered they do let it happen. So, if you need something to put into your system and don’t or can’t have food delivered be prepared to buy the small, pack able lunch sized bags of potato chips, popcorn, and pretzels. It can also get a bit smoky, especially during the colder months. Depending on the crowd, despite the cold, I personally found that I had to step outside a few times to give my eyes a rest from enduring the burning sensation caused by the closed quarters.
Games and a couple televisions grace this place but it really isn’t anything special. It is more or less a place to meet up with your friends and keep your attention on your friends than be side tracked by anything else – unless you’re there on a karaoke night. To locate this bar, it is listed on the internet via using www.yahoo.com and searching ‘bars’ in ‘Warren, MI.’ You’ll find that Louie’s Bar is very easy to find, it’s right on Van Dyke Avenue.
Ram’s Bar And Grill, however unlike Louie’s Bar, had impressed me very much. Surprisingly, this bar is quite spacious and like Louie’s Bar is easily located and on Van Dyke Avenue. This bar, too, can been found at www.yahoo.com using the ‘local’ search method. Ram’s has a classy air about it and a very clean impression.
Karaoke is held at this place as well. The last time I had visited this place their karaoke was available on Friday’s and Saturday’s. Although at times these days are subject to change.
Unlike Louie’s Bar, Ram’s does have a kitchen. I have never experienced the food there myself but what I saw from other’s getting food, it seemed to be decent and well liked.
Prices on beer and liquor is reasonable. This place does serve pitchers. What really impressed me is that Ram’s is the only bar that I know of to serve on tap Woodchuck Cider!
This is definitely a bar where the locals are number one. Not that you’d get treated in any horrible manner, it is very much ‘regulars’ friendly.
Another location of a bar on Van Dyke Avenue in Warren, Michigan is Te Roma’s. This bar, by far, has the most friendliest staff and the best prices on drinks. If one doesn’t feel like buying a pitcher this bar offers mini pitchers in which I don’t know of any other place that has this offer to their customers.
Te Roma’s is a sports bar, so there are plenty of television’s. There is also, a couple of games, darts, and pool at the ready to anyone with the desire to play. Just as well, they have all of the bar games to play including Keno.
The menu of Te Roma’s has a wide range of varieties including pizza. The proportions of theirs food is very generous, so when you order you’ll have a fully belly and most likely left over’s to take home. I have never ate anything there that I didn’t like. They have daily specials that change from week to week on drinks. Every day there are specials on their menu and they have theme days of the menu from Mexican food to Polish food to their pizza.
I’ve never felt out of place here like some bars can make one feel. It’s very relaxed and homey.
I’ve gone to other bars in the Warren area but none of them has stuck out to like these three have. But, to each their own. Other bar’s in the Warren area include but are not limited to Alias Bar and Grill, Lime Light Bar and Grill, Midway Inn Sports Bar and Grill, Sporty O’Toole’s Bar, and Roadies Pub.
