Good news for hungry sports fans.

Two new food joints will be opening inside the Little Caesars Arena, when the future home of the Detroit Red Wings and Pistons opens for business in September.

Mike’s Pizza Bar
The pizza kitchen will feature an open concept where artisanal pizzas and handcrafted brews will be pumped out. Mike’s Pizza Bar is an homage to Little Caesars Co-Founder Mike Ilitch. The venue will have indoor and outdoor seating.

Sports & Social Detroit
The gastro-pub will have state of the art audio and visual technologies for maximum viewing pleasures. It will feature a custom bar, private dining rooms and indoor and outdoor seating.  Sports & Social Detroit will be adjacent to Mike’s Pizza Bar.

Both bars will be open to the public on non-event days and nights.

Combined, the two restaurants are expected to bring more than 300 new jobs to Detroit, brining the total post-construction jobs at Little Caesars Arena to more than 2,000.

Kid Rock will give a live performance on Sept. 12 to commemorate the kickoff of the Little Caesars Arena grand opening, along with Mike’s Pizza Bar and Sports & Social Detroit.
