This hotel was closed for years and is now demolished. I have heard stories of it being a gay hang out back in the day. It is located at Washington and Grand Circus Park. Bob Damron's 1968 guide book says "Mixed crowd and or tourists" and "Pretty elegant, usually a jacket and tie advised if not required." I don't know anything about what this place was like. Please post your stories and photos.
This blog is a hobby of mine. I am researching the history of gay bars and places in the city of Detroit. It is a work in progress; some of the bars that I list, I have no real information about what they were like or what kind of clientele they had or pictures. If you know something about an old bar, email me please. I want to post every gay bar in Detroit that ever was so people can respond with their own stories or what they know about them. I need pictures also of old bars that have since closed. This blog is also semi-autobiographical, I am going to share my own life stories of bars and places in Detroit.
