Drinks x Design is a monthly open studio that provides exposure and networking opportunities for Detroit’s creative community. Held in a new location on the second Thursday of every month, Drinks x Design offers an opportunity for creative businesses throughout the city to open their doors and share their work with the public. Attendees come to meet new people, make connections, promote their creative endeavors and learn about other projects in their community. Drinks x Design serves as a platform to continue the Detroit Design Festival dialogue year-round and draw attention to design-based businesses all over the city.
