Riverside Station General Info
A new outdoor concert venue is landing in downtown Detroit starting this spring. The socially-distanced design of the space is a reflection of how live entertainment has been reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Riverside Station Detroit will turn an empty parking lot along the downtown riverfront into an outdoor venue, complete with a stage and pod-style viewing area that allows up to six people to watch the show from their designated area.
Each viewing area will be separated from the rest of the crowd by about eight feet per pod. The design is similar to how a drive-in theater might operate, but without the cars.
To further reduce direct contact with staff and other patrons during concerts, audience members will be able to order drinks, food and even merchandise like albums and t-shirts from a web-based app and have their orders delivered to their designated area.
The lot is located at 701 W. Jefferson Ave., which is east of the Riverfront Towers apartment complex and west of the former site of Joe Louis Arena. A Detroit People Mover stop for the old hockey arena is located just steps away from the lot.
