Great views and lots of nostalgia in the past. Mainly for adults to enjoy serenity and a smooth drink. Not for kids..

Every time we stay at the Grand we end up in the Cupola Bar at the end of our day. The view of the Straits is spectacular and it feels like your on top of the world .

Awesome setting to sip on a cocktail with friends before turning in for the night. The service is excellent and the drinks are generous portions.

A one-of-a-kind, two story bar with piano player at the tip-top of Michigan's finest hotel and singularly most important over-night location in the state. Incredible island views. Not to be missed!
