  1. The Crow Bar was the fore runner of Dee's Lounge. The Crow Bar closed in the late 1970s. Dee's Lounge opened soon afterwards and lasted until the mid 1980s.

  2. The Crow Bar was the first gay bar I went to at 18 years old. I still remember hearing Anita Ward's classic Ring my Bell as I walked into the bar. My how time flies!

  3. Dee's lounge as I knew it! A bunch of Port Huron queens used to take me along. It was fascinating going to Mt. Clemens with it's tall buildings. I was either just under age or actually 21, I don't think they checked. I remember the light up dance floor squares. I always got lost trying to find my own way back, then I rememberd it was before the county building heading North on Gratiot. The parking lot was dark and scary.

  5. I heard the Bar was burned down or had a mysterious "Fire". I believe it was the only official Gay bar in Macomb County and I do not believe one has opened since.
