The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Discover Urban Renewal in Detroit


4. Insider’s Tip

ClandesDine serves five-course meals that benefit charities in abandoned Detroit spaces.  

ClandesDine is an exclusive, semi-quarterly underground supper club run by a rotating cast of young, prominent chefs who find abandoned spaces like auto-body repair shops and warehouses and convert them into one-night-only dining events. Meals usually cost $125 and proceeds go to local charity and arts groups, but since it’s invite-only, you’ll have to do some work to get in. Your best bet is to contact the nonprofit being hosted and request tickets through them. Nosing around at Corktown spots like Slows, Astro Coffee, or Honor & Folly is a good place to start.
