Finally repurposing a massive, former spice-processing facility (it's about... thyme?), Trinosophes is a cafe-cum-gallery-cum-live music venue-cum-soon to be second home of a Midtown record shop.
White-walled and concrete-floored, the space clocks in at a cavernous 8,500sqft & is cozied up with family heirlooms (like this vintage piano) and various bits of Detroit history...
... INCLUDING THE OLD BAR FROM ST. ANDREW'S, which anchors the cafe and has a new top made with wood pulled from a high school gym.
Along with caffeine from Madison, WI co-op Just Coffee, they've got baked goods like this sour cream cake from Red Hook and'll be unveiling a daily menu set to include everything from various curries to pop-up pizza parties (!).
Vintage books, anyone?
This is either a really unfortunately assembled IKEA shelving unit or part of the gallery showcase currently on display.
Here's the stage, which is made from the same clearly-way-larger-than-regulation gym floor used on the bar top, and'll feature everyone from national acts to local faves like Jamaican Queens.
The third part of the space will be making room for a second location of Midtown's People's Records, which, considering the former spice plant tie-in, should be open by mid-June...iper?
