In the shadow of Detroit’s iconic Michigan Central Station — at what appears to be a dilapidated warehouse from the outside, but in actuality is the quintessential urban loft — Hour Detroit decided to throw a party. But not just any party. 

This is a city that’s mastered collaboration, and that’s the idea behind this get-together. We invited some of the city’s most talented up-and-coming individuals who are each experts at their own craft to throw a party together. 

We asked each guest to contribute something to the party, whether it be custom invitations, food that would appeal to all guests, decorations for the loft, a playlist to keep us going all night, or cocktails to keep the conversations flowing.

From our Friendsgiving to yours, we hope this celebration inspires you to collaborate at your next dinner party — or in life.
