Located in the heart of Detroit’s Greektown district on Monroe St, our goal and mission at Firebird is to be a true American Tavern; a gathering place to meet for lunch, pre and post events, unwind during happy hour or simply celebrate the arrival of the weekend with your friends.
Constructed in the early 1880’s, this 120+ year-old building has been restored to enhance the handcrafted woodwork and exposed brick while also adding some modern touches like WiFi and HD flatscreen TV’s. This historic building originally housed a saloon operating under multiple owners for the first 20-30 years of its existence. As the years passed and the name of the street changed from Croghan to Monroe St, an auto upholstery shop, a local cafe and an authentic Greek barber shop all called 419 Monroe Street home.
After some careful restoration and slight modernization, we feel we brought the building back full circle to its original purpose and are proud to give you the Firebird Tavern.
