LGBT Friendly Dessert Bar to Open in Downtown Farmington

The popular micro-batch creamery Browndog Creamery & Dessert Bar is preparing to open its second location in Downtown Farmington. The new Browndog will be known as Browndog Dessert Bar and will be a combination of a micro-creamery and cocktails. Located at 33314 Grand River Ave., Browndog Dessert Bar is slated to open the first or second week in June. The creamery was at Between the Lines' Ultimate LGBT Wedding & Anniversary Expo this past March.

Browndog Dessert Bar -- owned by Paul Gabriel and Brian Scherle -- will be an expanded concept of the Dessert Bar at their original Northville location. The new location will feature plated desserts and a craft cocktails bar, which will have a heavy focus on Michigan-made products such as Michigan craft beers and spirits to create cocktails such as beer floats and dessert martinis. Browndog Dessert Bar will also feature a small appetizer menu, and of course, Browndog's small batch ice cream that is highlighted by unique flavor twists. The new store will continue to be family-friendly but with a more adult feel than the original location in Northville.

"We are looking forward to opening our second location in Michigan and will continue to keep with the Browndog tradition Michiganders have grown to love," said Brian Scherle, co-owner of Browndog. "We are also excited that our new location will not only be the first 'Dessert Bar' in Michigan, but that it will also still have the walk in and grab a cone element of a traditional ice cream parlor that caters to the young and young-at-heart," added Paul Gabriel, co-owner of Browndog.

To help bring the newest, must-visit Browndog to Downtown Farmington, Browndog Dessert Bar is looking for a pastry chef and mixologist to join their team. Interested job seekers can apply online at
