Division South

Grit, growth, and great creativity are hallmarks of Division South and Avenue for the Arts, the street's commercial corridor. Close to and mostly considered part of downtown, neighboring The Arena District, Division South boasts small galleries, clever dining, eclectic shopping, and interesting events.

What to see and do: First Friday Gallery Hops are an excuse to visit galleries, shops, and eateries that stay open late so visitors can enjoy handmade items, works by local artists, food and drink specials, and other delights. The Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts (UICA) is Michigan's largest contemporary arts center and a multidiscipline venue for art advancement. Its theater presents dozens of documentary, foreign, and independent films each year.

Where to eat: The Rockwell-Republic duo relies almost entirely on local food sources in creating its small plates, green plates, and other menu items. Fat Johnny's Cheesteak Co., the new kid on the block, features Jersey-style and Philly-style sandwiches and delicious sides. Propaganda Doughnuts speaks of danger, intrigue, and exceptional gourmet treats made from high-quality, local, adeptly handled ingredients. Have you had a beignet today?

Where to go: The artisans at the Local Epicurean use local ingredients to create organic small-batch pastas and specialty sauces. Vertigo Music is a quirky store with a well-curated selection of CDs and vinyl, from blues to punk, and staff who love them. It's a it with the turntable crowd. Dodd's Record Shop up the street has been selling records since the 1950s and is considered part local treasure, part treasure hunt.
