Our Advantages

A Few Words About our restaurant

Visiting a restaurant involves more than great food.  It involves a great atmosphere. We strive to bring the best of both to each customer for a remarkable experience.

Kola is Metropolitan Detroit’s ONLY West African Restaurant & Ultra Lounge. Derived from the “Kola nut”, the fruit of the Kola tree native to Africa widely known for its use as a caffeine source, our restaurant reflects the West African symbolism of this fruit… vitality, long life, welcome, and friendship.

Kola offers the following experience:

  • A full service restaurant & lounge with a bar and authentic West African cuisine.
  • Catering services for corporate events, receptions, birthdays etc.
  • Delivery services to your residences, campuses, offices, etc.
  • Facility rental service offering lounge and/or restaurant rental for private events
  • Dynamic entertainment including live bands, comedians, poets, and music genres with African influences such as Reggae, Jazz & Neo-soul.

You can choose to enjoy live entertainment or comfortably fellowship with friends in our lounge. You’ll also find that the premium wines from our distinguished wine list unintrusively compliment the experience.
