Bedrock, one of Detroit’s largest commercial real estate companies, announced its “Decked Out Detroit” initiative, which will launch a four-month plan to support businesses and the community during Michigan’s coldest months by providing safe shopping, dining and entertainment experiences in downtown Detroit.

Starting Dec. 18, downtown restaurants will feature heated open-air pergolas for safe outdoor dining, and downtown parking will be complimentary at Bedrock lots and garages with validation.

“Despite the pandemic, many businesses in downtown Detroit have shown incredible resilience and continued to support the local community with innovative new programs. Decked Out Detroit is designed to build on that momentum by creating safe ways for the public to mask up, get outside and enjoy their city,” said Kofi Bonner, CEO of Bedrock.


Starting Dec. 18, downtown restaurants will begin to open cozy, comfortable and safe outdoor dining areas, designed in compliance with the latest guidance from the State of Michigan and CDC. These dining areas have been strategically placed around the city for easy walkability and to best leverage the location by extending into sidewalks and city streets.

Each dining area will feature its own distinct partially enclosed pergolas, including custom space heaters, tables, chairs and much more. Visitors can order food, beverage and alcohol from a variety of participating restaurants, providing a one-of-a-kind outdoor dining experience.

Participating restaurants include: Avalon Bakery, Besa, Buddy’s Pizza, Calexico, Cannelle, Cornerstone, Eatori, Hudson Café, Maru, Mootz and San Morello.

Shopping Local: is more important than ever this year and Detroit businesses have a variety of gift selections for everyone to enjoy. To help make your gifting easier, Bedrock has created a holiday gift guide that showcases a variety of options for in-store, online and curbside shopping while downtown.
