Take a Look Around the Updated UFO Factory

The fancy hot dogs are back

Corktown’s shuttered UFO Factory finally made a comeback more than a year after construction workers at a surrounding development damaged the bar’s building.

The music venue/bar opens daily with local and national acts. The Laika Dog kitchen also returned from with fancy hot dogs, grilled cheese, french fries, tater tots. The brunch menu is expected to return in the next few months.

Eater photographers Michelle and Chris Gerard visited the newly opened UFO factory to check out the new interiors and exterior.

The beloved bar and music venue was officially declared unsafe for occupancy and condemned by city inspectors in August 2017. Crews were working on the $45 million Elton Park development smashed the footings of the northside wall of the UFO Factory resulting in a massive fissure along the silver-painted brick. The hours and menu are limited due to limited parking during ongoing construction at Elton Park.

UFO Factory is located at 2110 Trumbull Ave. in Detroit; open weeknights from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and noon to 2 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays; kitchen opens from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday through Friday and the kitchen opens from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Correction: This story has been corrected to reflect the hours and menu offerings at the UFO Factory bar and kitchen.
