Contemporary American
Chic yet approachable, historic while tastefully modern. The Apparatus Room bridges the old and the new, offering iconic New American cuisine by Chef Rece Hogerheide rooted in Midwestern ingredients, thoughtfully crafted cocktails, and esoteric wines. By blending a three-meal restaurant, elevated dinner service with signature touches, and a world class hotel bar, the Apparatus Room welcomes locals and travels alike to sip, stay, and enjoy one of Detroit’s signature restaurants. Our cocktail program is classically focused with inspiration drawn from the history of the building and the city itself. The ingredients may be familiar and the presentation simple and classic, though each cocktail has a deeper story to tell for those who have time to listen. Sommelier Liz Martinez showcases the diversity of both Old World & New World wines, and the regions are separated as such on the menu. Winemakers that take pride in sustainable, environmental practices are always on the top of our mind.

    This was my first time at the Apparatus Room and it was a fantastic experience. I had made the reservation for my sister and I for her birthday for brunch. The hostess greeted us with awareness of her birthday, there was a table tent card on our table wishing her a happy birthday, and our server also knew and provided us a complementary toast for her birthday! The service and food was amazing and the atmosphere is really beautiful. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the Detroit area looking for a great weekend brunch spot.

    Food was mediocre, except for the fries which was awesome. The menu was so so limited for lunch, not a lunch place basically. Hardly anyone there on a Friday lunch so noise level was low which was good for our purpose. The place looks great though. Server was nice but again limited. Won’t be going there again for lunch.
