PLYMOUTH, MI – Greek Islands Eatery owner George Stefanakis and his sons have opened a new hidden gem, the Ebenezer at 305 Fleet Street in Plymouth. The Ebenezer is downtown Plymouth’s first and only speakeasy, and one of the few in the Metro Detroit area.
Hidden in plain view off Fleet Street and nestled in the basement of the former First National Bank of Plymouth (now occupied by Greek Islands Eatery), its moniker comes from Ebenezer J. Penniman, the first to be appointed president of the bank in 1871. While the tellers, loan officers, and deposit slips are long gone, the former vault still exists as the bar’s private tasting room, equipped with lockers for members, and an ambiance reminiscent of the Roaring 20’s mixed in and elegantly spun with today’s vibe that can be felt throughout the entire space. The Ebenezer is over 4,000 square feet with a capacity of 127 and serves craft cocktails, wine, craft beer, and a small menu of shareable plates.
Among the items on the menu are the charcuterie board, parmesan truffle fries, pulled pork sliders, and lamb shank.
The Ebenezer hours: Tuesday-Thursday, 4 PM-12 AM, Friday and Saturday 4 PM-2 AM, Closed Sunday and Monday.
