Since the early 1900s the white columned building at the corner of Caniff and Joseph Campau in Hamtramck has been home to a bank, a cafe, multiple tap rooms, and in most recent memory a Chinese restaurant called The Golden Hill Chop Suey. The last tenant vacated the building in 2012, however a recent rehab is spelling a new chapter for the space. Now dubbed Bank Suey, the building has been reactivated into a community space hosting a rotating array of workshops, events, and pop-ups.
This Saturday, caffeine seekers can find a new coffee pop-up — New Weird America — making pour overs with Anthology beans and serving up fresh pressed ginger shots and juice in Bank Suey. The pop-up is expected to become a regular in the space. Photographers Chris and Michelle Gerard took a tour of the building on Friday and checked out the new coffee spot. Scope out the space in the gallery below.
New Weird America is open in November 12 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 10345 Joseph Campau in Hamtramck.
