A Review of Townhouse in Detroit, MI
TownHouse is a popular restaurant and bar, originally based in downtown Birmingham, MI. Its second location recently opened in downtown Detroit, MI in 2016. The seats are easily filled during the weekends, and it's considered a really cool place to hang out at.

Favorite Meal & Drink
Veggie Burger: My personal favorite is the Veggie Burger. Its patty is a jaw-opening 1" thick of protein source, made with healthy black beans served between sesame-seeded buns. A choice of the Sides can be a Salad, or a bushel of French Fries.
Heart To Heart: My favorite cocktail drink is the Heart To Heart drink. It's made with vodka, lemon juice, & grapefruit juice. My first impression of the drink was that it tasted deliciously pulp-like.
Basil Smash: Another personal favorite cocktail drink is the Basil Smash. It is muddled with Mint leaves, with a fresh taste of Lemon Juice and Gin. The ice adds that sense of "coolness," which makes the Bar experience much more worthwhile.
What's really comforting about this restaurant, is that during the summer time, the windows are open by its "balcony," allowing the fresh air to simmer the mind. While sitting at the Bar, it's easy to enjoy the view of the outside patio, and to observe guests coming in and out of the Bar. During night time, the fire-lit lanterns have a cool Indiana-Jones type of effect, giving it a true adventurous experience. What makes this place stand-out, is that it feels like an outdoor activity, that's really indoors! The background music provides an upbeat ambiance, and checking out the "ceiling mirror" above the bar makes it fun to connect with a random stranger.
The patio is a great place for families and group of friends to dine at, under its extended signature-red umbrellas.
For the cold-weather fanatics: During the Winter time, the windows are sealed air-tight, to prevent the blistering cold winds from tackling on the guests. Thankfully, the adjustable internal temperature makes up for that!
The Pros of dining at TownHouse: It's popular, and it's easy to meet and connect with people especially at the Bars. Their cocktail drinks are delicious, and they offer some great meal choices.
Seats certainly fill up quickly during the summer time!
Cons: The only con about dining at TownHouse, is that the seats fill-up rapidly on the weekends, so it's necessary to show-up during 5pm or 6pm at most. During the week may also be a very good time to find available seats.

Hangover Tips That Your Friends May Thank You For
So, let's say if you ran into a hangover as I did (Mine was from combining vodka & whiskey cocktails together). For the best hangover preventions, drink only Spirits / Clear & distilled liquor (whether cocktails or "on the rocks").
If you find that you've encountered a hangover, I've tried these tips that worked for me:
1) I ingested baking soda, and drank water in moderation. The excessive acidity irritates the stomach, and causes nausea, hence the baking soda & (purified) water helps to balance the pH level of the stomach acid.
2) After on-line researching, I ingested some honey. The honey helps the body break down the alcohol components much faster. It can also be taken with Green Tea. I couldn't really stand to ingest it, but after getting a couple hours of rest, I woke up feeling hungry for a meal, and I ate lightly at that point.
3) Avoid Coffee. I made the mistake of drinking some coffee on my way home, and could feel that I was upsetting my system. Thankfully, it was resolved.
