On the Main Concourse, you'll find the Walk of Fame which has historical memorabilia celebrating the team's 100 plus years history. You can't miss the six large "decade bats," symbolizing each era in Tigers baseball along with artifacts, photos, and display cases.
There are plenty of fun things for kids - there's a carousel at Section 199 and a ferris wheel (the only one inside a ballpark!) at section 131.
And for adults - the Camacho Cigar Lounge is an ideal place for an elegant, cozy pre-game meet up. With a baby grand piano and extensive bar, it's not something you'll find in most ballparks. On game days, access to the Lounge is limited to guests with Tiger Club access. For more info on non game-day rentals call 313-471-2661.
Food and Drink:
Check out the Big Cat Food Court near the main entrance, which offers the largest selection of concessions inside including gyros, Chicago-style hot dogs, daquiris, and our personal favorite - elephant ears. The Brushfire Grill behind third base is an open air picnic area that you should definitely check out when the weather is nice. They serve a veggie Italian sausage that isn't bad (if you're a vegetarian) as well as standard ballpark fare.
If you find yourself near section 330, stop by Mike's Hard Lemonade Upper Deck Lounge which features a full bar, separate seating area, air-conditioning, and best of all - is open to all ticket holders -unlike a lot of other ballpark's full bar lounges. Also offering a full bar is the Labatt Blue Light Jungle on the second level near Gate B, which also serves things like a hummus plate, salad, pulled pork sandwich, and chili.
A huge step above the old Tigers Stadium, the modern Comerica Park is quite impressive. From the large 15 foot tall Tiger Statue at the front entrance to the family-friendly atmosphere to the improved seating and great architecture in general, this is definitely an enjoyable stadium. And with so many surrounding bars and restaurants, you're not likely to be disappointed in your pre or post game options either.
We found a few bars/restaurants in the area that offer either free or very cheap shuttles to and from the game - check out Hoots on the Avenue, Old Shillelagh, Harry's, and Nemo's Bar all found on "Before and After the Game" map. There are quite a few decent sports bars as well as slightly more upscale spots within walking distance too.
Getting There and Parking:
Comerica is just south of I-75 (Fisher Freeway) and directly across Brush Street from Ford Field where the Lions play.There are about 5,000 parking spaces in lots around the stadium which can cost up to $20 or possibly more. Other options, however, include the lot on Columbia and Cass just West of the stadium which is usually only $5. You can take a chance of parking on the street, but we don't really recommend it. There are a few parking icons on our exterior map as well that lead you to lots that can be easily booked right online through us and our affiliate Parkwhiz, so be sure to check that out if you want to save a little money (and time). Or you can just stop at one of our recommended restaurants before a game that offers free parking and a shuttle.
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.
Be sure to also check out our "Info Inside the Stadium" section for recommendations inside the park.
