Visiting a restaurant involves more than great food. It involves a great atmosphere.
Kola is Metropolitan Detroit’s premier ethnic restaurant & lounge. Derived from the “Kola nut”, the fruit of the Kola tree native to Africa & the Caribbean, widely known for its use as a caffeine source, our restaurant reflects the West African symbolism of this fruit… vitality, long life, welcome, and friendship.
Kola offers the following experience:
A full-service restaurant with a full bar and authentic West African/Caribbean cuisine.
Catering services for corporate events, receptions, birthdays etc.
Facility rental services for private events
Dynamic entertainment including live musical performances, comedy, poetry, dance classes and emphasis on music genres with African influences such as Afrobeat, Reggae, Jazz & more.
You can choose to enjoy live entertainment or comfortably fellowship with friends in our lounge. You’ll also find that the wines from our distinguished wine list unintrusively compliment the experience.
Visiting Kola is an Experience.
We provide exquisite, authentic West African dining experience while providing a contemporary atmosphere.
Kola specializes in serving authentic West African cuisine, not typically found in this region.
Our lounge offers live entertainment including bands, comedians, and other acts. Not only does this support the local talent, but offers a relaxed venue to enjoy some of the best talent in the world.
