A artist who goes by the name Shark Toof is preparing to open a new cocktail bar in Hamtramck, according to Metro Times. Shark Toof, whose murals of ferocious sharks can be seen at Eastern Market, has taken over the former Carbon Lounge at 11474 Joseph Campau Ave. with plans to turn it into a bar called High Dive.
The bar is set to open on an as-of-yet-unspecified date in October after some interior renovations and updates to the facade. Among the additions to the building: a red fiberglass shark installation, much in the style of the artist’s murals. Shark Toof is also adding some vintage details to the space including booths encircling marble-topped antique tables and an Art Deco glass lamp over the pool table.
Customers can expect a menu featuring ingredients that are both high-end and lowbrow such as top shelf rums and whiskeys and cocktails mixed with every Juggalo’s favorite pop, Faygo. Most drinks will range from $2 up to $8.
