1980s-’90s-Themed Club Coming to Downtown Detroit


Restaurateur Jason Frankel, who’s behind Rubbed in Corktown and The Keep speakeasy in Detroit, will open a 1980s-’90s-themed club called Set in downtown Detroit at the end of the month.

“I personally don’t feel that there are enough places that provide for nightlife entertainment aside from ‘top ’40s’ related themes,” Frankel says.

The 3,000 square foot space, to be located at 140 Cadillac Square east of Campus Martius Park, will cater to young adults. Frankel says there’s a lack of clubs in downtown Detroit.

Set will feature electronic music and can be booked for private parties or events. Frankel says drink prices will start at $4, and the attire will be casual. The underground space includes natural stone, and will be located below The Keep, a speakeasy that features craft cocktails.

The club will host a preview party featuring Terrence Parker, a Detroit-based deejay and music producer, on July 11.
