Hospitality and marketing executive, Josh Lang, has launched 7OH2 Hospitality in the heart of Downtown Detroit with a clear vision and purpose, to create world-class hospitality experiences that leave a lasting impact on the markets and patrons that it serves.
Hospitality extraordinaire, Lang learned all facets of the business working for, and alongside captains of the industry. Ultimately joining the ranks of the most accomplished nightlife and resort operators in the world, Lang's tenure included serving as Managing Partner and ultimately as Vice President of Marketing in Las Vegas for Clique Hospitality. A son of the Midwest, Lang's home state of Ohio came beckoning. Being brought on as a partner with Ethos Hospitality, Lang's goal was to revive and reinvigorate Cleveland with his creative concepts. He did just that with the opening of two highly successful concepts: Lost Social Club in Cleveland and Mandrake Rooftop in Columbus. After opening the venues, Lang felt it was time to start his own hospitality company, 7OH2 Hospitality, with the name paying homage to his past, his present, and now, in Detroit, his future.
7OH2 Hospitality will operate Gilly's Clubhouse and Rooftop, a multi-faceted dining and elevated sports and entertainment venue. The group will also unveil a second venue in early 2024, introducing Detroit to a first-of-its-kind sensory-driven food and dining experience. Both Gilly's Clubhouse and Rooftop and the yet-to-be-announced venue will be housed in a historic storefront in the Kay Baum Building on Woodward Avenue, a short walk from downtown Detroit's sports venues, retail, and transit options.
The 7OH2 Hospitality experience differentiates itself with a focus on extraordinary design, service standards, human engagement, and meticulous attention to detail, which all together aim to stimulate each of the senses. Lang explains that each of the venues will incorporate what he would look for in an ultimate hospitality setting.
"A 7OH2 experience should lead with a curious thought, followed by an overwhelming sensation of energy, and for the finale, it should leave you wanting to know how the hell they did that and how can I have it again."
One of 7OH2's main measures of success is servicing a marketplace that yearns for new, unique experience-driven concepts that are flexible to the needs of all guests.
