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 ancient Egyptian symbol for rebirth, to symbolize the boundless creative spirit. The Scarab Club today is a place for artists in all media to make, show, and talk about 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.

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

Home to several in-house poets, the Scarab Club partners with Wayne State University Press and hosts monthly readings to give writers a forum to share their work.
