Our Motown Heritage (Part 26)
Building A New Motown

by Robert Dennis

With entertainment clubs, restaurants and a 3000 seat theatre next to downtown Detroit, Bert's is a central part of Detroit's music scene. As the Director of Operations for Bert's Entertainment Complex, Motown Heritage Club Co-Founder, Harold Bowles, is building a new Motown.  His latest project Bert's Motown Room, will be a new Motown-themed, first-class eatery ready for its opening before Labor Day, 2006.

Figure 1 (left, below) shows how the room looks now, 6 weeks before its opening. Nine "dining suites" will each feature a different Motown recording artist, such as Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, the Temptations, etc.  The suites feature the music and a museum quality reminiscence of Motown Artists and their famed successes. Figure 2 (right, below) shows the room as construction was just beginning.

 

The 150 seat Motown Room joins the rest of the Bert's Entertainment Complex, including Bert's Marketplace, a 150 seat nightclub that features the best of Detroit's jazz music (left, below), Bert's Food Court/Catering that holds sidewalk barbeque in the summer during Eastern Market shopping hours and major downtown sporting events (center, below), and Bert's Martketplace Theatre, a 5000 seat venue (right, below).

   

The Motown Heritage Club is dedicated to keeping Detroit a hit-factory.  If we are to stay a hit-factory we need places for talent to perform and places to entertain the public.  Hat's off to club co-founder, Harold Bowles, who is doing his part for what is needed.
