Jack White’s Third Man Records Opens Outpost In Detroit


Jack White’s Third Man Records returns home to Detroit with a new second outpost based at 441 West Canfield Street in the city’s historic Cass Corridor. The building once housed the Willys-Overland Motor Company in the early 20th century. White launched Third Man Records in Detroit in 2001, and in 2009 opened its current Nashville location, which houses a record store, novelties lounge, label offices, distribution center, photo studio and more.

The Detroit space, which opened on Nov. 27, is home to Third Man Records’ second retail space, as well as Third Man Vinyl Record Pressing. The multi-use space also features Third Man Books Nook, a live music space (including music from the Third Man Records House Band, The Syncopators), and a listening booth that includes Third Man Records’ entire catalog.

Visitors can record their own 6″ record in the second of two Third Man Recording Booths (the first still resides in Third Man Records’ Nashville flagship location), and The Impossible Photo Booth, which allows visitors to shoot using “Impossible Duochrome Black & Yellow film,” made for Third Man Records by The Impossible Project.

There is also a Ride Mini Topsy, a motorized elephant scooter “to take smalls and talls alike for a spin around the store,” according to a statement.

“We are humbled to be in a position where we can return to the town that started it all, and absolutely thrilled for what the future holds for Third Man Records Cass Corridor. Thank you, Detroit.”
