Tapas anyone?

There’s a new place to dine and drink in Detroit, and along with Spanish-inspired dishes and classic cocktails, it’s serving up some of the city’s best views. Kamper’s, nestled on the 14th floor of the historic Book Tower at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Grand River Avenue in downtown Detroit, it pays homage to the Book Tower’s original architect, Louis Kamper. The rooftop lounge, Detroit’s largest of its kind, features spacious indoor and outdoor seating with expansive skyline views of the city. The menu emphasizes flavors of Barcelona, with Spanish-style tapas such as queso garrotxa with aged goat cheese from Catalonia, membrillo; tortilla di patate – a classic potato, egg omelette, aioli; escalivada – charcoal grilled eggplant, red peppers, onions, aged sherry vinegar; and croquetas de jamón, featuring creamy croquettes of Jamón Ibérico. The beverage program focuses heavily on gin & tonic, negroni, sangria, and sherry cocktails. “Kamper’s, which we consider to be an ‘instant classic’ within the Book Tower, is the perfect addition to our slate of upcoming dining concepts,” said Randall Cook, CEO and co-founder of Method Co. “Our team has been hyper-focused on curating this special space, with distinctive culinary flare and flavor, and is excited for guests to experience Detroit from our vantage point atop the 14th floor of this historic building.” The 4,350 square-foot space offers seating for up to 40 guests, with an additional 14 seats at the bar and 86 seats on the patio. The warm and inviting cocktail lounge boasts sophisticated yet cozy indoor and outdoor seating options with features including hand-clipped marble, mosaic flooring, a limestone grand staircase, antiqued mirrors, velvet drapery, wood beam ceilings, multiple fireplaces and a paneled millwork bar.  1265 Washington Boulevard, Detroit
