Dining Dos and Don'ts

Metro Parent magazine has outlined the dos and don'ts of dining when it comes to children and The Whitney was front and center...literally. Check out the front cover and you will notice the beautiful scalloped ceiling from The Whitney's first floor Drawing Room. The article goes on to state that "it really depends on the child's temperament and interest in the experience" when it comes to fine dining.

Good temperament, bad temperament, The Whitney is just glad to have you and
your family as guests.

From Garden to Ghostbar

Our summer was hopping with outdoor parties in The Whitney's garden oasis, from Thursdays with Metro Times to jazz in the late afternoon sun. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end...well sort of. The weather is cooling off so our garden bar has now moved to our historic third-floor Ghostbar! It's the perfect place to bring a date or a group of friends for classic cocktails, delicious eats and Detroit's best jazz. Check it out!

Known Far and Wide

The Whitney is going international...well sort of. Jim Fox, a writer and member of the Visit Detroit magazine family, recently wrote an article titled '48 Hours in the Detroit'. The article featured a number of Metro Detroit's local favorites including Greenfield Village, The Riverwalk, Motown, classic cars and of course, The Whitney. It was quickly picked up by The London Free Press and ran on the front page of their Travel Section.

You can read the full article in The London Free Press below, but since then,
the article has run far and wide through syndication, including all major cities in Canada - Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, London, etc. and on the Sun/Quebecor Media website,, with links throughout
the world on other websites, such as USA, etc.
