How do I get around?
Restaurants are primarily located in “clusters” that are walkable – enjoy the summer stroll! Special shuttles will help get you between the clusters. Please familiarize yourself with the shuttle lines and stops before you arrive by reviewing the information here.
Shuttles run nonstop starting at 5:30 p.m. and make all stops on assigned routes until 10 p.m. Walk to restaurants within the Downtown, Midtown and Corktown clusters, or hop on at the nearest shuttle stop to travel between clusters.
You’ll receive a printed map with all restaurant addresses and shuttle stops, but you can star and save a digital version to Google My Maps on your smartphone (you must have Google Maps installed or log-in to your Google account in your browser). The map can also be found in the official EAT Detroit App.
Where do the shuttles run?
The Green Line loops counterclockwise (running west to east) on Michigan Ave between the Corktown shuttle stops and the “Downtown – Woodward” stop, where you can find our Help Desk (1001 Woodward Ave) and transfer to the Red Line to visit restaurants in the Downtown and Midtown clusters.

Are your shuttles ADA-accessible? Are the restaurants?
The event requires walking from restaurant to restaurant within “clusters”, with shuttles providing cluster-to-cluster transportation only. Due to a high volume of rentals for various events, we have found a limited availability of private shuttles overall.
If you or anyone in your party requires an ADA-accessible van with adjustable seating for a mobility device (wheelchair or scooter), please indicate “YES” at the time of purchase. A representative from EAT Detroit will follow up directly for details and determine accommodation options.
Currently, all but one restaurant has a wheelchair-accessible entrance, and vary in providing seating or standing-room only for event attendees. The following locations have wheelchair-accessible bathrooms: Bar Pigalle, Cork & Gabel, Ima Izakaya, Jolly Pumpkin, La Lanterna, Leila, Lumen, Mad Nice, Mercury Burger Bar, Mootz Pizzeria + Bar, PAO Detroit, Parc, San Morello (inside Shinola Hotel Birdy Room), Second Best, SheWolf Pastificio & Bar, Slows Bar BQ, The Statler, Supergeil, Takoi, Vicente’s, and The Whitney.
If you require ADA-accessible shuttle transportation and did not indicate at the time of purchase, please contact us immediately at email@example.com with your reservation number.
