    <p>Came in over the weekend for a surprise treat. Each of the performers were “lit” and made this a very enjoyable evening for us. A very special shout-out to our hostess, Nikki Stevens (a beautiful entertainer and comic gem) who made us feel truly welcome. Though it was my 1st time here, I’m quite sure it won’t be my last.</p>

    <p>Just got home from having my birthday, the staff made me a walking panic attack feel nothing but joy, comfort, and safety. I honestly didn't want to leave! They even surprised us by calling me on stage and having everyone say happy birthday to me! I'm upset we didn't take pictures of it but the surprise and support were worth it! Thank you Gigi's for making my first time so memorable !!!</p>

    <p>My favorite bar in Detroit. Everyone there is always super friendly (both staff and patrons,) I love their patio, I always have fun on their dance floor, and I feel SAFE in their parking lot! Drinks are reasonably priced and there's always something fun going on there. Love this place.</p>

    <p>I just started going back to the club and I really enjoy the food. They are serving everything now. I really like the corn beef egg rolls, the pizza and the season chicken and fries. I can't remember the ladies name in the kitchen but she's very nice and has a wonderful personality. I hope to go back every week to dance the night away. Great music and great  entertainment💃💃💃💃..

    <p>This place started out slow but they all made me feel so very welcome. I met Sammy the bartender and the owner and they were wonderful. The pool table was busy and entertaining. The clientale were various and also very nice. I found my bar away from home in Detroit. The area looks sort of run down but that ads to the mystique and wonder of the place. The drinks are reasonably priced as well. I like darkened windows and southern accents this far north. I felt right at home. I found out the the ownership changed under 2 years ago and judging by the niceties it might have been for the better. Hayloft is a gem, a little rough but a gem none the less.</p>
