My Birthday Dinner at JoJo’s ShakeBAR
For my 35th Birthday this year, I decided to celebrate at a new restaurant in Downtown Detroit, called JoJo’s ShakeBAR. I first heard about them back around Valentine’s Day when Tony and I were visiting Chicago. I had loved their setup for V-Day, but unfortunately, at the time our plans had changed. When I heard that they launched here in Detroit, I just had to check them out.
JoJo’s ShakeBAR Detroit
JoJo’s ShakeBAR gives a retro dining experience, with their 80s/90s-inspired details, which include arcade game tables, and a walk-up window for sports fans on the run. The decoration is very nice, we really love the nostalgic vibes. They are located near Comerica Park and Fox Theater, a great place to hang out after a ball game or before/after a show.
They serve Biggie shakes that you can add a shot of alcohol, cocktails, food, and dessert. Some of the food that is on the menu would include Baked Mac and Cheese, Lasagna, Vegan Burgers, Walking Tacos, Buffalo Chicken wrap, and more.
What I ordered:
The food was delicious! The sandwich was just right, not too spicy, and the fries were my favorite! and so fun to try these yummy dessert drinks for a birthday dinner!
- Honey Fried Chicken Sandwich, which is a Chicken breast, with lettuce, pickle, spicy honey, spicy mayo, and brioche bun.
- JoJo’s Fries: Shredded mozzarella, provolone, Cheddar, bacon, chives, and sour cream.
- ‘Wonder Years’, which is a Blueberry shake, with candy marshmallows, gummy candy ribbon, and cotton candy. I added the shot of Barcardi Rum, which was pretty good!
- I also had a shot of their ‘Birthday Cake’ which includes: Absolut vanilla, Frangelico, and whipped cream.
My Birthday Dinner Outfit
I thrifted just about everything that I am wearing here from Poshmark, and I purchased the pink teddy jacket and hot pink flats from SHEIN. I went with a Malibu barbie theme for our style, which included bright colors that would give me that Barbie look, and I received many compliments on my look.

I had an amazing time. Our waitress was very kind and continued to check in on us and was very helpful with finding a perfect birthday drink. I did learn that if your whole party isn’t there at your reservation time, they will cancel you after the 15-minute grace period. I got nervous when all of my party wasn’t there on time, but we managed to get in and enjoy some yummy food and drinks! It seems like everyone had a great time, and definitely recommend stopping in next time you are looking for things to do in Detroit.
They also had really cute Fall decorations outdoors, it was really nice to be able to get out and get some cute photos with my friends. Also, shout out to all my friends who came out and celebrated my birthday with me. I love you all! xoxo.
