InLaws Hospitality — which operates several popular restaurants around Detroit including Green Dot Stables, The Huron Room, and Johnny Noodle King — purchased Lansing’s former Whiskey Barrel Saloon at 410 S. Clippert St. last fall. At 12,000-square-feet, the sprawling location will be nearly three times the size of the original outpost in Detroit.
This will be the third location for the casual, horse racing-themed restaurant that’s known for its creative sliders and wallet-friendly cocktails. The small company helped overseas investors open a second location in the rather unexpected locale of Malaysia in 2015.
The Lansing menu should feel familiar to customers who’ve visited the Detroit restaurant with options like Kentucky-style hot brown, corned beef, and rotating “mystery meat” sliders. However, there are a few options that are special to the Lansing spot such as prime rib and lamb vindaloo sliders. Prices are still comfortably set at $3 or less per item.
Green Dot Stables Lansing is located at 410 S. Clippert St.; open from 11 a.m. to midnight Monday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday; 517-574-4214. Website.
