It was featured on Curbed and The Detroit News and is usually used for film production and photoshoots. You can invite up to 25 guests and enjoy every area of the house, including all of the furniture, the kitchen, garden, fireplace, piano, and solarium. Celebrate your 2020 baby in roaring 1920s style at this luxurious venue!

Your friends and family will adore this uniquely-designed home, complete with a large photo-worthy stained glass window and plentiful antiques in every room. Host up to 20 people with the onsite help of the venue’s host and hostess, who are there to ensure an enjoyable experience for you and your guests.

For all other food, you are welcome to bring your own catering or reach out to the hosts for information about their preferred contacts.
4. A luxury home near the Detroit Golf Club
One of the best things about Peerspace is that you can give any celebration that charming house party feel without the hassle of hosting in your own home. “Borrow a house” for your baby shower by booking 2000 square feet of this 7000 sq. ft. mansion on the north side of Detroit. Between the various rooms—including lounge areas, a movie theater-style entertainment space, and billiards room, you can comfortably host a party of up to 20 people. Your booking fee includes use of the tables, chairs, kitchen, popcorn machine, and projector. The rest of your party refreshments may include outside food and drinks from any local catering company.
