All Access: the Bronx Bar
The age of the bar is a mystery, but that’s about the only ambiguity this Detroit mainstay holds.
“At the Bronx, we don’t really do anything. It’s kind of our deal,” said 37-year-old Paul Howard who owns the 1,500-square-foot dive bar on the corner of Second and Prentis with brother-in-law Scott Lowell. “Part of what we do is no surprises -- no special nights, no drink specials, no happy hour.”
Howard and Lowell, who have owned the Bronx Bar on the Wayne State campus for 10 years, estimate that it opened in 1937, but “we’ve never been able to figure out for sure,” Howard said.
