Overview:Conveniently located off the I-75 freeway, and just minutes from Downtown and Midtown Detroit, The Eastern is a 5,000 square foot multi-use industrial space on Russell Street in the historic Eastern Market District. With its polished concrete floors, metal beam frame, and galvanized 18 foot steel ceilings, the generous floor plan can accommodate up to 225 person formal sit down affairs and 275 person standing or strolling events. The Eastern includes 2,500 square feet of outdoor space, urban gardens, wi-fi access, and a wireless speaker system.

By fall 2015, an initial upgrade to the site will be completed, featuring a full built-out bar made from reclaimed materials and an outdoor patio with catering kitchen shed. Ideal for both public and private bookings, the venue lends itself to a variety of uses, hosting events such as holiday markets, art gallery openings, photo shoots, and weddings, to name a few. Please contact us to schedule a viewing or to inquire about our hourly, half-day, and full-day rates.
The Eastern is committed to giving back to Detroit. Each month, a local charity or agency is chosen to receive a portion of our proceeds, contributing to causes that assist children, fight hunger, and support the arts and culture. We work hard to have the most efficient and economical environmental operations, with a focus on recycling, composting, and reducing energy consumption. The Eastern was conceived with the belief that our growth and achievement will help promote a positive image, encourage favorable national attention, improve the quality of place and life, and strengthen other local business sectors. Our goal is for Detroit to be a key beneficiary of the success of The Eastern.
