The cultural history in Detroit is strong, but it’s also diverse and welcoming of other cultures! Let’s see what’s happening at Detroit’s new Indian Gastropub. Midnight Temple is a new restaurant specializing in Indian-American food. Twenty-six-year-old Akash Sudhakara and chef Bharath Reddy are behind the project and are here to offer the food Sudhakara ate in his homeland but in a contemporary restaurant setting. Detroiters can expect pan-Indian dishes to give a general taste of India as a whole. Check out what tunes and eats they’re serving up in Eastern Market. Expect diner options like venison curry with naan and chicken tikka adobo. For lunch, they aim for a fast-casual menu, such as butter chicken bowls and “rollups”. Click HERE to view their site.

Electronic music and all the other playful musical technology are constantly proving themselves new. A round of applause for Josh Greenwood, owner of longtime Capitol Park coffee shop/techno oasis Urban Bean Co. Unfortunately, he had to close his spot, as many others did during the pandemic. Though, he moved on to his next project, which would come to be Spkr Box. This cafe and bar opened its doors on May 27. Some of you may have witnessed this inside look during the Movement electronic music festival. The little space was upgraded to support major energy, from the spot’s window panes to a tiny second-level bar, the DJ booth, a new sound system, a liquor license, and yummy food sourced by Village Hand Pies. Explore the basement Orange Room, which is an underground lounge with soundproofing that produces crystal clear sound quality. This is your sign to enjoy the classic cocktails and beers. The coffee concoctions are boozy as well! Click HERE to view their site.
