Detroit’s hotly anticipated Siren Hotel is preparing for a partial debut downtown this weekend on March 17, representatives for the boutique hotel confirm to Eater. The project will bring multiple new restaurants, bars, and cafes to the area as well as 106 rooms and retail.

The Siren is located inside the Wurlitzer Building and its neighboring 1515 Broadway building and will eventually house seven bars, restaurants, and cafes. This weekend, visitors can expect to check out two of those spots — Bay City-based coffee roaster Populace Coffee and the millennial pink Candy Bar from Lady of the House chef Kate Williams.

An additional restaurant project, an eight-seat tasting menu-only restaurant from chef Garrett Lipar called Albena is expected to open in April, according to the Siren. That project will later be joined by Kate Williams’ and partner Matt Wang’s all-day American diner and bakery, Karl’s, in late summer or early fall on the second floor of the hotel.

Several of the hotel’s other upcoming projects are currently being teased on the hotel’s directory including an unnamed rooftop bar and a piano karaoke bar called Sid Gold’s Request Room. Stay tuned for more details.

Update: March 14, 2018, 7:48 a.m.
