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.

Small's has been featured in Maxim, Travel and Leisure, Guitar World and other national outlets.
Locally we've been named "Best Live Music Bar" twice by MetroMix, "Best Bar on Paczki Day" three times by Real Detroit Weekly and "Best Sound and Lights" and "Best Venue Website" by Metro Times.
