The Little Bar is a completely refurbished Marine City historic landmark dating back to 1933.  It was one of the first drinking establishments in Michigan to get a liquor license when prohibition ended. Many famous people have dined here - and still do! The atmosphere is warm and inviting with a great bar that resembles an old Chris Craft wooden boat!

Come sit at the bar and have one of  our many craft cocktails as you wait for your table or eat at the bar. We also have a wonderful, shaded patio to sit and relax.


We host many different small events here: Baby and Wedding Showers, parties for graduations, engagements or retirements, The Little Bar Restaurant in Marine City, MI is a intimate and unique setting to host your next special occasion. We take pride in providing our guests with the best in banquet services and look forward to serving you. Call Cheryl, the owner, with any questions you may have at 810-765-8084. Thank you!
