Four-for-one just outside of Eastern Market

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?
