Neighborhood

Royal Oak

The suburban city of Royal Oak has long been friendly to the LGBTQ community. It has a youthful, exciting vibe with over 85 boutiques, salons and retail shops, 750 outdoor seats at over 70 restaurants, several live and movie theaters, a comedy club and more.

Pronto! on Washington Street is the epicenter of LGBTQ life in Royal Oak. The restaurant offers upscale Deli fare in a comfortable, social environment, and the bar is one of the most popular LGBTQ bars in greater Detroit. Their complex is also now hosting the Drag Queen Bingo produced by Five 15. Up the street from Pronto! is LGBTQ-owned Café Muse, an elegant restaurant and bar that offers gourmet delicacies in a cozy, romantic atmosphere.

There is a wide array of entertainment options all within blocks of each other in downtown Royal Oak, including the Royal Oak Music Theater on Fourth Street, a Live Nation venue that brings in national acts, and the Ridley’s Comedy Club with local and nationally known comedians. Stagecrafters at the Baldwin Theater is considered the best community theater troop in the state. Movie buffs will love the avant-garde line up at the Main Art Theater, and right behind that site is the Emagine Theater complex that shows all the blockbuster new movies.

Dozens of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, dessert bars, shops, boutiques and trendy clothing stores are all within easy walking distance. Downtown Royal Oak is a fun and entertaining area to walk around, either during the day or to enjoy the active evening night life.
