Simply Social Detroit is an loft-style wedding venue located in Detroit, Michigan. This event space is on the second floor of an industrial building that has been renovated for comfort and elegance while maintaining its historic charm. The venue is owned by Dominique Mitchell, an entrepreneur with a passion for women’s empowerment. After serving in the U.S. Army and attending Salem College, a historically women’s liberal arts college, Dominique found her passion for community development. She opened this location with the hope of providing an upscale event center that clients could fully customize to their tastes. When it’s not hosting weddings, the facility welcomes public gatherings such as book readings, movie screenings, art exhibitions, panel discussions, and more.
