Pro Tip: Make sure EVERYONE in your group PLANS to be slowed down with traffic and construction on your commute!

Tin Roof Parking: Methodist Church Parking Lot

Events, Games (Tigers/Wings/Pistons/Lions) & Concerts are BACK.  The fun downtown is at an all time high.  It also means traffic and parking can be tough to find and expensive.  Use Uber or Lyft or if you want to setup a ride from anywhere downtown Detroit (your hotel, a parking garage a few blocks from us, etc) check out our friends, Gest Detroit.  They can provide you with transportation to and from for $3.00 per person . Please contact Detroit@gestcarts.com or 313 770 2273 at minimum 24 hrs before your tour .

If you’re driving there is parking in the Methodist Church parking lot right behind Tin Roof (See Picture Below).  The address is 34 E. Elizabeth St. Detroit, Mi 48226.  Parking depends on the day and events (baseball games are more, etc), but it starts at $10.  Bring cash because they don’t take credit cards 🙂

This is the only parking option that is a couple steps from the start of your tour and you get the feel good of supporting the church and the small business that runs the lot (We love them both if you can’t tell)  HandleBar does not own any parking lots downtown.

Here’s a map:

OTHER CAR PARKING OPTIONS

Please contact Detroit@gestcarts.com or 313 770 2273 at minimum 24 hrs before your tour .

You could park in one of the parking lots that are owned by billionaire Mike Illitch (Red Wings, Tigers, etc), one of the parking garages within 3 blocks of Tin Roof or try and find a street spot using the parking app.  None are as close or convenient as the Methodist Church parking lot above though.

If you’re anywhere in the downtown area you can also take the Q-Line (Street Car) or The People Mover (elevated rail system downtown Detroit) from anywhere in the city and get off on stop “Grand Circus Park Station”  Our location is about 1.5 blocks from the people mover stop.  The people mover has stops all over downtown Detroit near many hotels, COBO, Joe Louis, Greek Town, The Ren Cen etc. A full map of where the people mover stops can be found here. People Mover Pricing and schedule can be found here.

(Scroll up for Tin Roof tour location)

Parking on site @ Detroit Shipping Company:

There is free parking in the blacktop paved parking lot behind the bar (access through alley).  There is also a gravel parking lot next to (east of) the bar that you can buy for a fee (typically $10/spot, but before 3pm could be free)

TAXI / UBER / LYFT

Call us responsible adults or lazy millennials, but we STRONGLY recommend utilizing an Uber or a Lyft.  Traffic, Construction and parking can be a challenge getting downtown and having the ride part taken care of just makes things easier, not to mention safer if you’re drinking.  Treat yourself, you deserve it!

Street Parking

Street parking is free on many of the streets that line the area.

For areas with metered parking Sundays are free.  For non-Sundays it’s $1/hour.  You can pay up to 4hours in advance.  Worried you’ll be at the bar for longer than that and need to re-up ?  You can manage your parking from an app here

Park anywhere and take the Q-Line

We’re a couple blocks off Woodward so you can park anywhere along Woodward, including downtown, and take the Q-Line.  We’re a couple blocks off Woodward so you’d just walk from there to get to Detroit Shipping Company.  Not sure how the Q-Line works ?  Plan your ride here

Take a Bird / Lime / Spin

Downtown is littered w/ the electronic scooters.  See one on the street ?  Snag it and pay $1 to start and roughly $0.15/min there after.  There are 3 companies in Detroit so if you’re not hip to them check em here: Bird, Lime or Spin
