Downtown Houghton: "Downtown Houghton" Houghton Nightlife Tip by lintman1
Houghton Nightlife: 4 reviews and 3 photos
Michigan Tech University is located next to downtown Houghton, so the bars there cater to the college crown. The 3 main bars on the strip are the Downtowner (DT), Ambassador, and the Douglas Houghton Saloon (Doghouse). The DT is known for it's large patio, which overlooks the Portage canal. The Ambassador is known for it's large Fishbowls. The Doghouse is a smaller, quieter bar with an 'older' feel to it. All the bars are quite busy on weekend nights during the school year.
Dress Code: Very relaxed. No one gets too dressed up.
Directions: The DT is on the far west end of downtown, the doghous on the far east, and the Ambassador in the middle.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
