September 20th marks National Punch Day and I knew the best way to celebrate was to go to Punch Bowl Social! Before we went to the Eastern Market After Dark event, we decided to head to Punch Bowl first for some drinks, food and a game of bocce (obviously I’m Italian).
Located in downtown Detroit, Punch Bowl Social offers a little bit of something for everyone! From bowling to shuffle boards to bocce and pinball, what else could you ask for? This place is PERFECT for large parties and events.
The drinks were great here. Because it was National Punch day, they offered a ‘Punch Flight’ with 4 options. I strongly recommend them keeping this feature on the drink menu as it was incredible. My personal favourite was the ‘Watermelon Polo Bowl’ made with Tequila, Watermelon Shrub and Lime Juice. It was a sweet tasting punch. My second favourite was the ‘King’s Cup’ made with Coconut Rum, White Pear Apple Tea and Lime Juice. This drink had a “tropical” summery taste which I loved!
Okay now, let’s talk about the FOOD! Three words: Lobster Bacon Fries! This was the FIRST thing I glanced at on the menu so I knew we just had to try it! The sour cream and garlic mayo sauce on the top of the fries was DELICIOUS and my favourite part of the meal. We also shared the “It’s Natcho Mama’s” Nachos but instead of adding meat, we added the fried cauliflower which was a great choice of flavour and a good Vegetarian appetizer to try!
And finally because one of my friends was craving Fried Chicken, we also got the ‘OMFG GF Fried Chicken’. Let me tell you the BUTTERMILK BRINE on the Chicken was fabulous.
Can’t wait to check out the Brunch on the weekend one day! I took a glance at the brunch menu and it looks BOMB. I will be heading there when they do their “Brunch Party” Sunday’s when they have a live DJ while you enjoy brunch.
Let me know what you think when you go!
