Legendary Detroit Barkeep Larry Mongo Is On A Screen Near You

August 14, 2013, 1:10 PM

Larry Mongo has found his way to YouTube, courtesy of a mini-documentary by Paige Erlich, an award-winning Royal Oak filmmaker.

Mongo owns the locally popular and Ryan Gosling-frequented bar D'Mongo's Speakeasy in downtown Detroit and is known for his mythic tale-telling style. In the video, we learn about Mongo's family, that he studies Judaism at the Downtown Synagogue and that Mongo's home is decorated a whole lot like his bar.

If you find the 13-minute video fun, go sit at D'Mongo's on Griswold for a while and you'll likely get a live version. With booze.
