Circa 1890 - Detroit Michigan (Gay Bar)

This bar was located at 5474 Cass Ave in Detroit. I don't know anything about this bar, help! Please post your stories and photos! It is still open under the same name and is not currently known as a gay bar. It was listed in Bob Damron's 1968 guidebook as a gay bar.

  1. All the WSU students would hang out at the Circa. I remember that they would play Procal Harum's "Whiter Shade of Pale on the juke box. It was more of a mixed crowed of gays & straight students.

  2. Since this is such a very old post, I'm sure I won't hear from you, but DetroitBob mentions Larry Barber. He was a very dear friend of mine many years ago. I wonder if anyone knows what happened to him. I heard a tragic story but never knew if it was true.

  3. I lived within a stones throw of the circa for years. It was definitely a student neighborhood bar.
