Description

The Caucus Club was founded by Lester and Sam Gruber in 1952 as the sister restaurant to The London Chop House, which in its heyday was regarded as one of the best restaurants in the United States. The Caucus Club is famous in its own right. In the spring of 1961, a then unknown Barbra Streisand launched her singing career here. In the bar, the tradition of the “Raincheck” allowed guests to purchase drinks in advance, and a token was registered in the raincheck cove for the future recipient. It is also famous for introducing a cocktail called “The Bullshot,” a savory version on the Bloody Mary that made its way to bars around the world.

Located in the heart of Detroit’s financial district, the Caucus Club became the destination for the city’s prominent decision makers, politicians, barons of industry, and celebrities (both local and national.) The Caucus Club became the spot for the “power lunch,” where business was conducted and deals were made.

After the Grubers sold the Club in 1982, the restaurant changed hands several times before finally closing it's doors in 2012. The space remained empty for several years while the Penobscot building's management courted a new owner that shared their ambition to revive the shuttered space and bring the legendary brand back to life.

Completely renovated and restored, the Caucus Club reopens its iconic doors in 2017 with a renewed spirit for excellence in hospitality. Classic never goes out of style.
