The Royal American

Come for the drinks and stay for the music at the The Royal American. This “hole-in-the-wall” bar along Morrison Drive gets you up close to hip bands while drinking a beer, a signature punch, or the house made cinnamon whiskey, and dining on pub comfort food. You’ll want to look at the cool décor that includes a refurbished Wurlitzer jukebox and paintings on the ceiling of our own “Royal Americans”, such as Walt Disney, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Sitting Bull and Abraham Lincoln.

The Royal American

Built into a former iron forge that abuts the train tracks along the Upper Peninsula’s NoMo neighborhood, this hipster dive fills up on weekends for concerts by local and national rock bands. The tiny stage is basically an extension of the bar, meaning bands play right on top of their audience—unless a guitarist or singer sets up on the floor with the crowd. It’s an intimate setting that can get loud during hip hop or punk rock shows. Cinder block walls and dim lighting contribute to the gritty feel, as do drinks like a Brass Monkey (Colt 45 malt liquor with orange juice) and a house-made cinnamon whiskey spin on Fireball. There’s plenty of greasy stoner food to soak it all up—patty melts, burgers, and a Frito pie-esque “Tips and Chips” bowl with shredded steak tips and queso—plus an appealing late-night menu of wings, chili, and shrimp.
