Voted the #2 Craft Cocktail Bar in Metro Detroit!

About Barter

The long-time dream of three long-time friends,

beverage manager and theatre-maker Jennifer Sandella, marketing pro Cait Pluto and business guy Jake Goodrich joined forces to create a welcoming and laid back craft cocktail lounge with the mission to host and support a community of artists. 

Whether you're joining us for events in our backroom or a drink at the bar we're so pleased to welcome you into, what we hope you'll consider, your very own artistic living room.
