The Venue

The Greyline is a 6,000 square-foot space tucked into the heart of downtown Ann Arbor at the corner of Ashley Street and Huron Street. It opened in 2016 and is operated by Zingerman's Events and Catering.

The name is a nod to the building's former tenant, the Ann Arbor Bus Depot, whose sign and curved-glass facade were saved during construction and used as inspiration for the design of the event space.
