Established in 2011, The Oakland Art Novelty Co. was the first bar of its kind to revive the concept of pre-prohibition era craft cocktail lounges across metro Detroit. Its secretive speakeasy style and unforgettably lavish 1920s interior, tucked away in an unassuming downtown Ferndale location make it a favorite among first-time visitors. Its accommodating staff, personalized service, high quality ingredients and carefully crafted, trend-setting drinks keep crowds coming back.
