Hot off the heels of Geiger Eat Shop's announcement, musician Dameon Gabriel announced his plans to open a Cajun-inspired eatery Gabriel Hall on the same West Village block. Model D reports that Gabriel has purchased an enormous, three-story house on the corner of Kercheval and Van Dyke to host the music venue, bar, and restaurant as well as a museum and music education nonprofit.

Gabriel initially pitched the concept during the 2014 Hatch Detroit contest (he was a finalist) with initial plans to open in Woodbridge. Now in West Village, he and an unnamed Louisiana-born chef partner plan to meld Detroit and New Orleans culture in the building. "I love to create an experience. If you have a good time with friends, food, and music, you always remember that," he says. Gabriel is working with Virtuoso Design+Build on the design, which is expected to have a "vintage New Orleans flair." Gabriel anticipates the project will be complete by the end of next summer. Eater has reached out for more details. Stay tuned. [Model D]
