An Unparalled Setting with Superior Craftsmanship!
The detail of the Mansion's Library doors are an example of the fine craftsmanship found throughout the manor.
The current owners demand attention to detail for their events.
Over the years, many corporations, organizations and individuals enjoyed hosting events at the Motown Mansion. While the owners do not rent the Mansion out for public events, they do make their home available for certain private community-based events. In this manner, the current owners enjoy hosting their family and friends at the Mansion. With a number of formal and informal settings from which to choose, the owners are fortunate that the Motown Mansion creates just the right atmosphere for their many functions. As the former residence of Motown Records founder and impresario, Berry Gordy, Jr., the current owners have found that the Motown Mansion lends itself well to their music and entertainment industry functions, in particular. In addition, the current and past owners have hosted local symphony and opera recitals for new and emerging talent in the Athletic Building. In fact, legend has it that the Jackson 5 auditioned for Motown Records in this very space! Indeed, the owners have hosted numerous listening parties for their guests in the Athletic Building.
The owners of the Motown Mansion host many events. As a result, they are happy to refer you to some of the caterers who have provided services to them at their various events. We recommend these caterers because they are great at managing event details and helping their clients accomplish the finishing touches necessary to ensure the success of their event or meeting. While we are happy to share our resources with you, we are not responsible for your interactions with these caterers. If you have a special caterer that you enjoy, please contact us. We love trying new caterers!
