New owners Emre and Lynn Uralli have put “millions” into renovating the historic four-story, 125-year-old building in downtown Detroit and hired Thomas Trainor, previously with the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, as the new GM. After January 12th’s grand opening the club will keep its main dining room and meeting rooms open to the public. “We’re going to be diverse enough to appeal to the millennials,” Trainor said. “It’s not going to be as traditional [a] club environment as you would think.”
