Paradise Lounge

  • Wheelchair Accessible

(150 guests, 75 seated)

Located in historic Orchestra Hall on the second level, the expanded Paradise Lounge features large windows overlooking Woodward Avenue and the corner of Parsons Street. This area is adjacent to the office of Ossip Gabrilowitsch, the DSO's first Music Director in Orchestra Hall. Perfect for receptions of up to 150, or dinners on non-concert nights for up to 75.

The Lounge's name is a nod to Detroit's former Paradise Valley neighborhood, which Orchestra Hall itself was named after for a decade in the 1940s when the hall was known as the Paradise Theatre and jazz greats from Louis Armstrong to Sarah Vaughn frequented the stage.

The Paradise Lounge is open for light bites and cocktails before and during concerts on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.
