Former West Village record shop Paramita Sound is moving into the Siren Hotel in downtown Detroit and bringing a bar with it, Crain’s reports. The new Paramita Sound will be located near the entrance to the boutique hotel in a 650-square-foot space previously home to 1515 Broadway.
By adding the bar to the record store and moving it to downtown, owner Andrey Douthard says he hopes to increase revenue for the business. Douthard will be joined by partners Zach Poley and Anna Atanassova, a wine expert and who was general manager and beverage director at Flowers of Vietnam until earlier this summer. The group previously won a $15,000 small business grant from Motor City Match to open at the hotel. Eater has reached out to Paramita Sound for more details on the bar.
When it opens sometime around the end of the year, Paramita Sound will join a ballooning lineup of local restaurants and bars at the Wurlitzer building hotel. Kate Williams’ Jayne Mansfield pink cocktail spot Candy Bar opened earlier this year alongside Populace Coffee. Chef Garrett Lipar’s tasting menu-only restaurant Albena began taking reservations this week in anticipation of a late-August opening. New York-based piano karaoke bar Sid Gold’s Request Room will open this fall on the ground floor of the Siren while the second floor will welcome a diner style restaurant from Williams’ called Karl’s.
