Cheeks (Gay Bar)

Cheeks was located on Eight Mile Rd. in Detroit next to TNT. Ca. 1982-ca 1986. aka Cheeks Star Club, Tryst Club. Share you stories about this place in the comments section. *See Credits.


  1. CHEEKS was formerly the TNT BAR which consisted of three bars. See LABELS - TNT Health Club - Comments

  2. This was a very high-end club back in the day. Crowds would gather at the entrance is hopes of "being selected" to go in. The interior was stunning and massive. There was a pool with floating candles.

  3. I was a bar waiter at the Tryst from the time it opened to when it closed. I remember a piano player/singer sing "Hot Nuts" in the fireplace lounge...GOOD times!!! And the Sunday brunches were great!!!

    1. Hi Chris,

      I work for a TV production company and I'm researching the techno scene and clubs in Detroit around the period that you worked there. Is there a way I can get in contact with you. Best,
