The food, the food, the food. We went through an extensive and gluttonous screening process to bring together unique, chef-driven partner restaurants. Each brings a simple but refined menu, offering a new take on a classic. So you can eat, eat and eat again. From tacos and tapas, to Caribbean chicken, to Thai, to dumplings, to coffee and ice cream, there’s something for everyone. Did we mention much of it can be made vegetarian or vegan?




Host the perfect event.

Whether you're hosting a meeting, a happy hour, dog-walker meet-up, charity ball, Magic: The Gathering tournament, tailgate before a Tiger's game, speed dating event, or even a wedding, Detroit Shipping Company offers a one-of-a-kind facility in the heart of Cass Corridor. For groups of 15, up to 1200 people - offer your guests an experience like no other in Detroit.




Are you not entertained?

From live music, to DJ’s, to Stand Up Comedy - there’s always something happening at DSC. Check our calendar to see what’s coming up - or if you’re interested in performing, send us your info so we can get you on the schedule.

Let there be art!

We have two galleries at Detroit Shipping Company, both of which feature local artists. The Bridge Lounge, which bridges the interior and exterior of the space. And the West Galleries, two long galleries on the west interior of the building. Both are located on the second level.

Galleries are always free to view (though we host events in galleries, so they are sometimes closed), pieces are often available to purchase, and we are always looking for up-and-coming artists who could use a little extra exposure. Please take a walk through our galleries but double-please, respect the art.

Main Gallery Artist:

Sanda Cook

Worlds collide each time Sanda’s brush touches canvas.
Hailed as one of the most prolific painters in Metro Detroit, her work is both locally and internationally renowned. This is only fitting seeing how it’s this wonderful world that inspires her. Romanian-born, she studied art at the Brasor School of Arts.
Sanda’s art serves as a window into her journeys through Europe, Japan, and the United States. Love and beauty are abstract concepts that become realized through the color and light Sanda Cook paintes them. Multicultural, metaphysical, and spiritual, her art is visually spellbinding and emotionally captivating.
On a mission to return the same love that Detroit (and the world) have shown her, her humanitarianism can be felt throughout her community. She’s heavily involved in charity events and donates her work to worthwhile events . For Sanda, it’s a way of feeling further connected to the people around her: “Art for me is a way of being alive, of connecting myself to the mysteries of the universe, nature, and the magnificent human soul.”
Aside from her charity involvement, her work has been featured on several mass media platforms. One of which includes a feature of her life and work on PBS’s, Detroit Performs. Other features to her credit are Live on D, Detroit’s Local 4 Today, USartboutique.com, fineartamerica.com, artistsofmichigan.org, over twenty solo shows, and over one-hundred international collection shows featuring artists from around the globe. Her work was displayed at The Sacrab Club, The Rivers Edge Gallery, Downriver Council of the Arts, The Carr Center for the Art, The Detroit Artist Market, Grosse Point Art Center, Ariana Gallery, 4731 Studios, and The Padzieski Art Gallery.”

Bridge Gallery Artist:

Richard Halprin

RM_Halprin (1).png

Citing a fascination with faces, figments, dissenting opinions and a zigzagging zeal for punchlines and poetic justice, Detroit based artist Richard Halprin is the self declared master of doing one thing when he should be doing something else. Frequently, that thing is scribbling, sketching and otherwise making a mesmerizing mess with plywood and paint. 


Since childhood, Mr. Halprin has watched the world through the leery lens of a poet, and, though he chose to pursue  a career in law, the arts never stopped pursuing him. While working full time as a children's rights attorney over the past 25 years, he has rerouted his creative energy into side projects as a published film critic, songwriter and editor, all the while filling up the margins of his legal pad with whatever drawings the spirits presented. 

It wasn't until 2016 that he began to breathe life into his creations with regular transfusions of acrylic and ink. He now has a rich catalogue of curiosities, inspired by the odd instances and coincidences that inevitably present in our real and imagined lives.
