If you paid attention in high school, you'd know that centaurs were wild, mythical creatures that ran amuck in Greece getting drunk off wine and eating raw flesh.
Thanks to centuries of progress and the Detroit bar scene, a Centaur is no longer a half-man, half-horse, but a hot bar. And although wine is still a staple for Centaur, so is the wide array of delicious appetizers, so leave your raw flesh at home.
"We really are an alternative to your standard nightclub, in our look, in our standard and in our vibe," said Sean Harrington, owner of Centaur since its birth in 2005. He's right. Centaur is a sexy date place and a welcomed change from the ordinary.
Located downtown, Centaur is one block away from the Fox Theatre, Ford Field and Comerica Park. But the location is the only thing in common with neighboring sporty destinations. This is not a sports bar.As for food, Centaur doesn't serve large plates, but small tapas-style entrees instead. Order one at a time as you sample each martini, or order them all at once and share with a date. Centaur will do it, and they will do it any time you come in.
