Welcome to the historic Willis Show Bar in Detroit, MI. First opened in 1949, it was one of the hottest jazz clubs in the country until it closed its doors in 1978. Inspired by the legendary acts that performed in the past, we reopened the famous bar lounge true to its original Art Moderne styling that captures the attention of every seat in the house. Uncommon among bars is the placement of the stage which is uniquely positioned behind the cocktail bar. We feature live music, burlesque shows, vinyl DJs, and comedy shows throughout the night.
There is never a dull moment at Willis Show Bar and you will experience the best that Detroit nightlife has to offer with our top-quality variety entertainment. Our show bar has different acts every single night, so you will want to check back often with us. Everyone will love the vintage vibes of our blues bar and jazz ensemble and bask in the glory of bygone times.
Our stylish atmosphere requires all patrons to dress to impress and reservations are recommended. For any questions or if you would like to place a reservation, please feel free to contact us today at Willis Show Bar.
