Bocce is the best of all (because its my fave). And while there's a few places in Detroit that offer this game of drunken skill and chance--- the spot I love is Ottava Via.
This Italian restaurant is luxe on the inside and chill on the outside. Let's focus on the outdoor space since the weather is nice.
This is the place that screams late-night date night. Beautiful plants and flowers are spilling from everywhere on the patio. Grab a seat around a table in a cute selection of mis-matched retro chairs that, once upon a time- belonged in a classroom. Check out the wood-burning brick oven in the corner, nice touch.
Now let's get down to business: The bocce court. Grab your drinks and that lady by the hand because you're playin' bocce now. Toss that clay ball to the other side. Help her with her form. Twinkling lights are strung above the bocce court for added ambiance.
