VENUE

The Fisher Building

The building known as “Detroit’s largest art object” has been dropping jaws in New Center for more than 80 years.

The Fisher — built by the Fisher brothers of “Body by Fisher” fame — opened Sept. 1, 1928, at Second Avenue and Grand Boulevard. Once known as the Cathedral to Commerce, the 441-foot tower is decked to the nines in fancy marbles, mosaics, soaring, painted ceilings and a whole lot of brass and bronze. This world of shops, theater, art and architectural beauty is renowned architect Albert Kahn’s masterpiece, “a superbly designed complex which displays some of the finest craftsmanship in any Art Deco style building constructed in the U.S. in the 1920s,” the National Park Service says.

Unquestionably, the golden tower of the Fisher Building is one of the most recognizable sights in Detroit’s skyline.

A Good Cause

Hall of Whiskey benefits The Attic Theater Company.

The Attic Theater Company stages relevant but underproduced American works that tell stories of brave people at a crossroads between individuality and society.  By taking these plays down from the Attic, dusting them off, and revitalizing them, they forge relationships with audience and artists that exemplify the values inherent in these stories – fortitude, hope, generosity, and humor – modeling them in the way they do business and share their work.
