Small's: your favorite neighborhood corner bar and rock venue all in one. Located in the wonderful city of Hamtramck, nested in the heart of Detroit, MI, Small's is the area's premiere independent music venue.

Our front room is home to an art deco-era bar stocked with more than 50 beers including local and national craft labels, European brands and your favorite lawnmower beer in cold 24 oz. cans. Down the hall in our live room, Small's hosts national and local bands and DJs several nights a week. Check out our calendar for details.

Small's was established in 1999. Our building, originally a bank, dates back to 1923.

If you are lucky enough to catch his band Warrior Soul on a particularly fired-up night, you might not even hear a stick of music. You might just get two straight hours of their front man eviscerating you for your complacence, a wild-eyed, fully zonked rock'n'roll machine gun blasting holes in the fabric of reality with verbal tirades about the inexorable rise of the neo-cons and the hidden agendas of your neighbourhood cops and clergy. Warrior Soul shows aren't just gigs, man. They are profane sermons delivered with high velocity and maximum volume.’ Ken McIntyre (Classic Rock Magazine UK)
