Scarab Club Wedding Venue

Let us help you find your perfect wedding venue with this fun quiz!

Welcome to the Scarab Club, one of Michigan's finest art, music, and literature venues. Join a wonderful world of artistic expression by walking through the gate. The Scarab Club will stimulate your senses with everything from art shows to musical performances to poetry readings and workshops. Inside the walls of the Scarab Club, there is an unbridled energy. Perhaps it's because the Scarab, an Egyptian sign of regeneration, was chosen as the moniker by the founders over a century ago to reflect the limitless creative spirit.

The Scarab Club's gallery, bar, and private walled garden make an ideal setting for your wedding. Leaded glass windows that let light in through the interior doors, mica and metal art deco-style lights with bands of geometric designs glowing in the lounge, a timeless “powder puff room” with elegant seating area, and a beloved garden, all created by the creative hands of Scarab ancestors, bridge the present with the past to create an intimate environment for your dream wedding. The exterior of the building is made of man-made materials, and the interior is Arts & Crafts. The Scarab Club's gallery, lounge, and private walled garden provide a variety of seating options as well as food and beverage options. With a range of bar configurations, the club may have formal dinners, buffets, or food stations. The house caterer, the Caucus Club, a renowned Detroit restaurant, offers services ranging from hors d'oeuvres and luncheons to lavish receptions. Gather your loved ones at The Scarab Club to celebrate love in this inspiring venue.
