The Bitter Lemon (Gay Bar)

The Bitter Lemon was located on Jefferson in Detroit.  I heard a couple of people mention it. Post in the comments below if you know anything about it. Ca. 1972-1973

  1. This bar was located in Detroit on Jefferson near Belle Isle. Building has since been torn down. This info from a friend of mine who used to go there in early 70s.
