Vertical Detroit

Wine-centric Restaurant Embodies Detroit's Rich History

Nestled in the lower level of the restored Ashley apartments in downtown Detroit’s Paradise Valley neighborhood, Vertical Detroit embodies the richness of the City’s history. The sublevel location evokes the feeling of entering a finely appointed wine cellar. The project design unfolded as a synthesis of reclaimed, polished, reused elements and materials, creating a warm, eclectic lounge that is as luxurious as it is inviting. Careful attention to detail creates moments of discovery throughout the space. These new elements and materials are curated to coexist amongst salvaged ceiling panels, vintage Parisian prints, re-purposed wood and the polished, existing floors. The owner’s family curio is intermixed throughout the space, resulting in one of the most expansive collections of wine in Detroit, combined with an unparalleled personal and intimate experience.
