History of Supper Club
Modern Supper Club
Spawning from the end of Prohibition, throughout the upper mid-West, Supper Clubs began to pop up as social clubs where guests would tend to spend entire evenings dining and being social. With a simple menu -- prime rib, steaks, chicken, and fish -- the food would become American standards to this day. Often, these social clubs would have an appearance of high class, but offered affordable evenings on the town.
These Supper Clubs were also known for the amazing Jazz and Blues music and artists that would add to the ambiance. Artists like Betty Bee Bop Carter, Sunny Clay, The Pharoe, Mugsy, Mr. T (long before the A Team) and Long Tall Dexter to name a few - became legends.
Making it Modern
Our beginning was really quite simple: recreate the vibe that was the supper club with approachable value. A place to spend the evening with classic American cuisine, amazing cocktails and Getting Social again with great friends.
We started by creating a room unlike any other - cool, hip, approchable & rustic, while at the same time filling the room with the beat of legends past and present. Next, we recreated classic cocktails that time forgot with technique and flair, locally crafted brews that fit our style, and a thoughtfully curated wine list; blending California giants with hidden gems sure to become favorites. Finally, we have a Chef that gets it. Blending classical French techniques with American standards, Executive Chef Christian Viau has elevated the supper club menu to memorable heights.
