Hip in Detroit is a positive space that features the people, places, and things that make the City of Detroit and the surrounding suburbs special. We discuss music, art, culture, food, and the ever-changing social scene of the city. We also promote shopping locally, pet rescue, and political issues that are important to us. We promise that anytime we discover something that we think is hip, we will make sure that you know about it too!
