Galleri 2987 is Detroit’s premiere Event Venue for unique corporate and personal-occasion events. Located near the waterfront in the Rivertown District, directly adjacent to Detroit’s bustling downtown, it sits directly in the middle of the best of what Detroit has to offer.
The building was originally built in 1905 and was home to Dongan Electric. Before relocating to Fraser, MI, Dongan Electric was one of the oldest family owned businesses in Detroit and worked on local, nationwide, and global projects. During World War II, Dongon was commissioned by the United States government to build military parts for the war. At one point during the contract, the 2nd floor of the building was one of the most secure locations in the entire city of Detroit, requiring top-level security clearance to gain access.
When the building was purchased by Galleri 2987 in 2014, a heavy emphasis was placed on restoration versus pure renovation, in order to maintain as much of the buildings incredible and storied history. Many of the original fixtures, machinery, and industrial components can be found throughout the building, intermixed with beautiful refurbished wood floors, original brickwork, and luxury embellishments, to make it one of most desirable and breathtaking event spaces in Detroit. Galleri 2987 is now a premiere event venue, hosting events of every kind, from elegant dinners and parties, to corporate bookings with some of Detroit’s leading businesses.
Within the venue there are several different spaces for rent, all unique, versatile and customizable to every event. Galleri 2987 has spaces perfect for intimate events as small as 20, and can be opened up and connected throughout the multilevel building to accommodate large events of 250 and more! Decorated with one-of-a-kind, handpicked furnishings, chandeliers, and custom artwork, it is one of the most unique Event Venues in the city, and provides an experience incapable of replication. It is the epitome of Detroit style, with the perfect mix of classic-industrial and high-end luxury. Galleri 2987 is absolutely a venue you have to come and see for yourself!
