After a long, long wait, the highly anticipated Detroit Shipping Company food hall launches on Friday.

At least partially. Brujos Tacos and Tapas, Bangkok 96, and chef Max Hardy's Coop are hosting their soft openings with a party that starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 2 a.m.

When it’s fully completed, 22 repurposed shipping containers will compose the roughly 12,000-square-foot space at 474 Peterboro St. Its tenants will also include Motor Burger, Bread Meats Bread, nitrogen ice cream and coffee maker Minus 320, and two bars.



Beyond the food, Detroit Shipping Co. will host live music, has an art gallery, and includes a podcast studio.

Bangkok 96 Street Food is the product of chef Genevieve Vang from the excellent Bangkok 96 Restaurant in Dearborn, and it will serve Southeast Asian-inspired street food.

Brujos will feature tacos and a "can-to-table" seafood tapas concept that utilizes high quality, artisanal tinned seafood.

Coop will focus on Caribbean-inspired plates and chicken.

The project is a product of owners Jonathan Hartzell, James Therkalsen, and architect Dominic Walbridge, who started work on it in 2015. They brought on Drakopoulos — who also owns Berkley's Republica — to help manage the operation.

Drakopoulos previously said construction delays pushed the opening back.
