Brix, a charcuterie and wine shop, will open in a renovated former bank building in Detroit’s West Village Neighborhood in the spring.
The converted bank, located at 7981 Kercheval Ave., will be home to two apartments on the second floor, along with Brix and a few other businesses on the first floor.
Mikiah Westbrooks, owner of Brix Wine and Charcuterie Boutique, says the space will have a communal feel, although each business will have its own separate entrance.
“When you walk in the door, we want to make sure that you feel that you are a part of everything that’s going on in Brix,” Westbrooks says. “It’ll be a really fun, intimate, cool space for people to come and hang out in.”
She says the 1,200-square-foot restaurant will offer packaged wine, smoked meat charcuterie, smoked cheeses, and local jams, along with fine chocolates and merchandise. Westbrook says the wine selection is priced at $30 and below. She says guests can either grab food to go, or sit at one of the 20 seats in the restaurant.
“We’ll also have an outdoor patio that will be shared between Brix and two other restaurants,” Westbrooks says. “In the spring, we’ll also do live music on the patio.”
She says the space, which is in the back of the building, is where the vault and the drive-through window used to be located. Westbrooks says the restaurant has exposed brick and a custom-made wine cabinet.
