Hudson’s Warehouse, a structure built in 1920, forms the south wall of the stadium and is now a concourse area for banquet facilities, restaurants and food courts. Most of the stadium's luxury suites are also located here and are spread out over four levels. Another impressive feature: a seven-story atrium within the warehouse. At the end of the atrium at the southeast corner of the stadium is a glass wall, which provides gorgeous views of the Detroit skyline.
With a seating capacity of 65,000 Ford Field has some of the best sightlines of any other stadium.
Food and Drink:
The local options are fairly decent inside the stadium, but don't expect to find super huge variety. The concessions are named after Detroit neigborhoods, historical figures, and local businesses which is kind of cool. There's Poletown Sausage and Paradise Deli which are pretty good, and definitely try to check out Charlie Sanders BBQ near Section 103 if you can. There's also a Gluten-Free stand near Section 119
As for general beer selection, that's not bad either. There are several Turf Tavern stands around where you can get specialty beers like Magic Hat, Dos Equis, and Stella for about the same price as a Budweiser. You can get margaritas at Section 106 and there are a few Beers of the World stands on the Club and Upper Concourse.

The Stadium and Neighborhood:
The Detroit Lions moved from the Pontiac Silverdome to Ford Field in downtown Detroit in 2002. It's in a pretty great location close to freeways and the People Mover, and with so many surrounding bars and restaurants, you're not likely to be disappointed in your pre or post game options.
Getting There and Parking:
The stadium is just south of I-75 (Fisher Freeway) at the junction of I-375 and is directly across Brush Street from Comerica Park where the Tigers play. Parking facilities adjacent to both parks are available on a first come, first serve basis. Tailgating is prohibited in parking facilities adjacent to Ford Field, but there are numerous parking lots surrounding Ford Field that operate public parking as well. For example, next door to the Trolley Market is an indoor garage at 1431 Washington Blvd which tends to be on the cheaper side. Check our map for its parking icon along with others and you can book a spot through Parkwhiz right from our site.
Eastern Market ( 2934 Russell Street) is northeast of the stadium on the other side of I-75 and I-375 and is the largest tailgating location closest to Ford Field and accommodates 750 spaces northeast of the stadium. The lots are a 10 minute walk from Ford Field, or a shuttle runs every 10 minutes. Tickets are $35 and parking is only $10. They brag "one of the safest and most vibrant districts in Detroit" so if you don't mind they price, it's a good spot for tailgating. Rumor has it tailgating at the Detroit Opera House (1526 Broadway) is also pretty good. Check our exterior map for exact locations.
If you're parking in or coming from anywhere in the Detroit downtown area, you can take the DDOT or SMART buses that will cost you only $3 round trip. You can also take the People Mover to the Broadway stop. Visit www.DetroitMi.gov/DDOT for more info on Detroit's public transportation.
Several of the area restaurants such as Vivio’s Food & Spirits and Hoots on the Avenue provide free shuttle service with purchases at their restaurant, so that's definitely something to look into. You can find more info on these and other restaurants on our Before & After the Game map.
