Sandi Heaselgrave, owner of neighborhood shop, had been exploring options for a location in Midtown for two years. She finally landed at Will after a friend of a friend suggested she look into the cafe space there. She did and found out they were looking for an owner operator.
After learning about the opportunity to pop-up in Midtown for the holiday season, she approached Will Leather Goods to discuss a long-term partnership.
“We live, dine and shop in Midtown and are so excited to contribute to the growth of this community by building another small hub for neighbors to gather, work and drink coffee,” Heaselgrave says.
Midtown is also excited to have The Red Hook Coffee open in the existing cafe in Will Leather Goods, located at 4120 2nd Ave.
“Red Hook is a great brand with a great product to back it up,” says Sue Mosey, Midtown Inc. executive director. “Midtown Detroit is really excited to have this quality new coffee operation opening in the heart of the district.”
The café will be open the same hours as Will Leather Goods – Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
The Red Hook has two other locations, one at 220 W. Nine Mile in Ferndale, and a second at 8025 Agnes Street in Detroit’s West Village. The Ferndale cafe opened in 2011 and the West village cafe in 2014. Both have become gathering spaces in the hearts of their communities.
