We’re on the North-East corner of  South Center Street. and West 4th Street, one block west of Main Street.  We are East of the Railroad tracks where they cross 4th Street The markers on some maps may point to the wrong block due to incorrect geocoding assumptions.

Usually, the best way to get to Noir Leather (from either Detroit or the Northern suburbs) by car is to take 1-75 to 11 Mile in Royal Oak and go West on 11 Mile until you see Diamond Steak on the left. The next block is Center and the one after Washington. You’ll see a parking structure on the left at Center and 2nd. That’s the best place to park in Royal Oak.  Exit at the South end of the garage, then walk half a block south and then cross the street, you’re at Noir Leather!

If you’re coming from the East or the West, take I-696 to Woodward and Woodward up to 11 Mile. Make a right to head East. Make a right after the railroad bridge on Washington, a left on Second, a right on Center, and finally another right into the parking garage.

If you’re taking public transit, take the bus (Twelve Mile, Ten Mile, 460 Woodward Local before 5pm and almost all Woodward Locals in the evening, Main St., etc.) to the Royal Oak Transit Center, walk down Sherman towards Washington and 4th, then make a left heading towards the railroad tracks. Cross the tracks. Look for the building with purple flames on the North-East corner of Fourth and Center.  We have plenty of black, nondescript bags for your discreet purchases.
