If you paid attention in high school, you'd know that centaurs were wild, mythical creatures that ran amuck in Greece getting drunk off wine and eating raw flesh.

Thanks to centuries of progress and the Detroit bar scene, a Centaur is no longer a half-man, half-horse, but a hot bar. And although wine is still a staple for Centaur, so is the wide array of delicious appetizers, so leave your raw flesh at home.

"We really are an alternative to your standard nightclub, in our look, in our standard and in our vibe," said Sean Harrington, owner of Centaur since its birth in 2005. He's right. Centaur is a sexy date place and a welcomed change from the ordinary.

Located downtown, Centaur is one block away from the Fox Theatre, Ford Field and Comerica Park. But the location is the only thing in common with neighboring sporty destinations. This is not a sports bar.

As for food, Centaur doesn't serve large plates, but small tapas-style entrees instead. Order one at a time as you sample each martini, or order them all at once and share with a date. Centaur will do it, and they will do it any time you come in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The bacon-wrapped dates, blackened chicken rolls, mini croque things, and beef Wellington were amazing! We have also had the mini burgers which were good too. Their martinis are also excellent-- this is my favorite martini bar. Aug 22, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by I don't know the bartender's name, but he's always a character, in a good way, making my visit more enjoyable. The fact that he shakes a good tini, doesn't hurt. May 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The bad first... When we arrived at 7:30 pm we ordered drinks and when they arrived, we attempted to order some shareable and we told the following from our server: "the kitchen is an hour behind, actually it's closed".So I told the server that it would have been nice to know before we ordered drinks. He was non apologetic. However, 10 minutes later we were told the kitchen was open again.Now the good... We ordered their slider burgers and Mahi tacos and it was really good. Nice decor, ambiance and location for any downtown event.We will try it again. May 5, 2014
