Cooper’s Hawk is an award-winning winery, restaurant, artisan market, and Napa-style tasting room concept, based out of the suburbs of Chicago. A lifestyle brand centered around food and wine, Troy is the third Cooper’s Hawk location in Michigan, and the 43rd overall for the stand-out restaurant group.

The design of the sprawling 12,341-square-foot restaurant was inspired by California wine country, with inviting neutral tones, exposed wood, and Napa-inspired artwork and design pieces.

The interior boasts a large wine tasting area, full bar, expansive dining room and two private dining spaces for corporate and leisure events. An outdoor dining space will be opening in early summer. The Troy location can seat up to 339 guests, with 48 at the bar and 56 seats in the forthcoming patio.
