Welcome to the Scarab Club, one of Michigan’s finest venues for art, music and literature.

Nearly 100 years ago, our founders selected the Scarab, an Egyptian symbol for rebirth, as the moniker to represent the boundless creative spirit. We feel this energy within the walls of the Scarab Club today.

Art

Art

Between our main gallery, arts and crafts lounge gallery and dining room gallery, we host over twenty four exhibitions in our calendar year. Join us for an opening or one of our sketch sessions, held four times a week.

Music

Music

Our music programming spans blues to classical with the Detroit Blues Society, Live at the Scarab Club and Chamber Music at the Scarab Club. Catch our Pleyel Piano Series, played on our stunning lounge piano, crafted in Paris in 1817.

Literature

Literature

Home to several in-house poets, the Scarab Club partners with Wayne State University Publishing and the Woodward Line Poetry Series to give writers a forum to share their work.
