Who would have imagined 10 years ago that I'd be telling my mom I'd call her back because I'm "at a bar in an alley in Detroit"? Seriously! The Z parking garage is everything out of the ordinary. From each level of the structure painted with murals from various artists around the world, to the alley between that was once a full-fledged delivery and trash removal space, now a lively gathering area activated with bars, retailers, and art that makes you feel like you've been transported somewhere in New Orleans. Standby was the first bar to open in the alley, then The Skip.
