Detroit Innovation Conference Venue
Once the home of Motown and the epicenter of the auto industry, Detroit has been experiencing something of a culture renaissance in recent years. In fact, by reinventing itself Detroit has proven to be one of the most innovative cities in America. This is overwhelmingly evident from the explosion of culinary creativity at hotspots such as Huron Room, and speakeasy-style cocktail lounges such as Standby. Beyond food, other must-visit destinations include the guitar-filled branch of John Varvatos’ namesake store, the legendary jazz club Baker’s Keyboard Lounge, and the impressive fine art collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
