But dont be confused by the name. Its not about Queens as in gay men. Queens is named after the NYC borough the owners have another Detroit bar named Bronx. Although not specifically an LGBTQ bar, Queens Bar has an unpretentious vibe and clearly welcomes LGBTQ patrons with a super-friendly staff that is very open. It has large windows wrapping around the exterior that let in plenty of light. A clean lined bar design mimics the curved corner of the building, and theres a cool streetside patio. They have a kitchen and offer a grill menu.
