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.
