Housed in a 115 year old, 52-room mansion with delicate, ornate wood carving, Tiffany stained glass windows worthy of a cathedral, and topped by Detroit's coolest lounge, the third floor Ghost Bar, The Whitney offers meals to savor and visits to remember. Its pristine gardens are a special place for outdoor dining, cocktails and garden parties offering everything from chamber music to deejay spinning and live bands.
Our cuisine is succulent and savory American flavors, exquisitely prepared and served by a professional staff. Much of the food is organically grown and changes by the season to keep it fresh and offered only at the peak of its taste. Fish is line caught, not net caught, to preserve its flavors. Premium steaks and chops are cooked to your preferred choice. Paired with The Whitney's extensive and eclectic wine selection with wines from as far away as Australia, France, and Argentina or as close as Traverse City and the Leelenau Peninsula, The Whitney's 350-label wine cellar promises something for every pallet and every budget.
An iconic Detroit building referred to as "the most elaborate and substantial residence in this part of the country" when it was built in 1894, The Whitney retains all of the charm and refinement of yesteryear while appealing to contemporary tastes. Its relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, friendly service and ambiance put guests at ease and brings them back again and again.
The Whitney welcomes you and promises a memorable visit every time.
