Asian Village

Asian Village, a $4.5 million project is working towards completion along side the Renaissance Center. This private enterprise will house restaurants, entertainment and a pan-Asian marketplace. The Detroit News was quoted as saying, ” it appears to be setting a new standard for independent downtown projects.” When completed, it will take it’s place along the new River Walk to be finished this year.

What a great time to be living in the D’. Although Ozlo’s on Woodward and The Blend coffee shop closed, there have been what seems as a rush to open new restaurants and bars in the Central Business District. One of my favorites is right around the corner from my residence. “Cliff Bells” opened last year before SBXL and is a great place to hang out late night with jazz every night but Monday. It has been restored to its original decor of a 1940’s supper club. In addition the owner has opened another bar called “The Park Bar” next door.

With the Town Pump and Centaur right down the street, Proof and Chelies on Adams, Grand Circus Park is up and coming as the new entertainment zone of downtown Detroit.

    i heard Oslo closed because the owner had some personal financial problems that prevented him from running the business, so it wasn’t that the D wasn’t good to Oslo… if someone else opened a sushi place in the CBD (or GCP) i bet it’d do well…

    Asian Village is gonna be awesome…
