Cait, Jake and I are excited to open BAR/TER! This mixed use performing arts space and craft cocktail bar is meant to act as an artistic living room for the emerging artist and the community at large. We’re building a space where artists of all types can perform, hone their craft and showcase their work. We’re hoping to use the revenue from the bar to subsidize the performance space to be able to work with groups no matter the budget.
We want to assist and encourage the emerging arts community. One of the toughest challenges facing artist today is the lack of affordable performance space. We’re hoping to help bridge that gap by using alternative revenue streams to support the artists in Detroit and add to the cultural landscape.
What I Will Do With $5,000
We would use this money to help with opening construction and equipment costs. The space needs work- and most challengingly needs two brand new ADA compliant restrooms (we want everyone to be able to come to our shows and enjoy our bar!) along with trenched plumbing runs. Every little bit helps as we make this a happy healthy space for all artists!
