Willis Show Bar sits on the corner of Willis and Third in Detroit’s Historic Cass Corridor. Reborn as an upscale cabaret and cocktail bar, Willis Show Bar has been revived from its early “Show Bar” era. First opening in 1949, it was a hot spot jazz club until it closed its doors in 1978. The legendary bar lives again in its original Art Moderne style ceiling and floor plan that captures the attention of every seat in the house. The very unique main stage is still behind the bar and features live music along with cabaret performers, burlesque dancers, deejays and comedians.
Upscale attire is appreciated but not required. We ask that guests refrain from wearing any of the following items: athletic wear, jerseys or any sports related garments, baseball caps, shorts and open toe sandals or flip flops.
Thank you for helping us create a unique and stylish experience.
