To say downtown Detroit is buzzing right now would be an understatement. Downtown Detroit is absolutely booming with new restaurants, bars and retail stores opening up every day and the GMRENCEN is right in the center of it all. Over the last few years, downtown Detroit has become a hot spot for after work events like happy hours and social gatherings. The GMRENCEN is more than just an office space, you can kick back and relax after a hard day’s work here too! Here are some things you can do after 5 p.m. (and on weekends) in the GMRENCEN!
Ride to the top of Coach Insignia
Coach Insignia is perched right at the top of the GMRENCEN on the 72nd floor. After 4 p.m. the restaurant opens for happy hour and dinner so you can catch the elevator all the way up to the top of the building and grab a drink and apps or stay for dinner with an amazing view of two countries. This is definitely one of the most unique happy hour spots in the city, which goes from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
