Midtown is Getting a Makeover

The street-scaping in Midtown is in full effect: new signage; antique-looking lamp posts; a “greener” walk way with trees, new curbs and a bike path are being added, updated and renovated along Woodward. We expect that the current phase of construction will be complete before Thanksgiving. During the construction, Whitney patrons are asked to use our temporary gravel driveway. There may be some construction, but our doors are always open! We look forward to the finished product and appreciate your patience during the process.

The Whitney Sees Pick Up in Pharmaceutical Meals

The Whitney has hosted numerous pharmaceutical groups recently. In fact, one recent pharmaceutical event held at The Whitney drew more than twice the expected number of participants. Event organizers suggested that The Whitney venue itself was a big reason behind the strong attendance. Importantly, The Whitney has numerous private dining rooms that can comfortably accommodate groups of varying sizes from 10 – 500 guests. Unlike most Detroit area restaurants, The Whitney does NOT charge extra for private rooms. The Whitney offers pharmaceutical packages that can accommodate various budgets.

Contact Nicole DeSalvio at 313-832-5709 for questions or to schedule your meeting.
