All Access: Ditty's in the City
After sitting empty for five years, Clinton Township’s rock’n’diner dance club Wooly Bully’s was remodeled and opened this year as Ditty’s in the City. The club was purchased by Brian Dittmer who stripped the nearly 25-year-old venue down to the studs. “I wanted to own my own business,” said Dittmer who was involved in the restaurant industry for 40 years before starting Ditty's. The 6,000-square-foot tavern opened February 20 after receiving a new roof, air conditioning unit, floor and ceiling. “We wanted to make it nice, not fancy, to cater to everyone," said Dittmer who named the tavern after a moniker his son received while in high school.
