Pontiac

Located at 8 N Saginaw St in downtown Pontiac, our first Oakland County location neighbors the recently-renovated Flagstar Strand Theatre for the Performing Arts. Slows Pontiac looks and feels like its Corktown predecessor, but with neighborhood accents. Pontiac Central High School provided bar tops, drawer facings, the gym floor and even the scoreboard from the gym, all integrated into the restaurant dining room.

Slows Bar Bq Pontiac will pause daily operations effective December 3rd, 2017. We will continue to be open for all performances at the Flagstar Strand Theatre. We look forward to providing our guests a full-service restaurant experience. We will continue to book parties and private events in the Theatre, in our restaurant space and bars.

After eight months of learning about the local market needs, we have decided to take a moment to restructure our business initiatives and relaunch with a stronger and more dynamic restaurant. A later winter or early spring 2017 re-opening is anticipated.

We are happy to be a new business partner in Pontiac and the entire community has shown us great hospitality and support. We are excited to continue our work with the community moving forward. We are thrilled about all the positive economic development in the City and are fully engaged in being involved in the process to grow the community.

The Flagstar Strand is also working to add compelling shows for 2018. As their food & beverage partner, we are excited to support these new shows. We look forward to dynamic performances with both a full hours and a full restaurant.

We are retaining a good number of staff members in our other locations, so they will be ready to re-launch the Pontiac restaurant.

We will be open starting at 4pm for the December 16th George Winston (7:30pm) performance at the Flagstar Strand.
