Cash Only Supper Club, a new fine-dining and live entertainment concept from Heirloom Hospitality Group, opens today in downtown Detroit’s Capitol Park.
Set below the steakhouse Prime & Proper, Cash Only Supper Club offers “an ultra-luxurious, Hollywood-glam-inspired vibe, complete with intimate seating and nightly musical performances.”
Set in the historic 1912-built Peter Smith & Son’s building, Cash Only Supper Club begins with guests escorted to their table by tuxedo-clad team members and continues with a seven-plus course menu served à la carte. The menu will change monthly.
Created by Heirloom Hospitality founder Jeremy Sasson and his culinary team, led by executive chef partner Anthony DiRienzo, Cash Only Supper Club’s opening menu features Lobster Tartelette, Uni Crispy Rice, A5 Miyazaki Wagyu, King Crab Vera Cruz, Short Rib on the Bone, Salmon and Sorrel, along with a tableside “Cash Caesar,” and Truffle Risotto. The dessert offering is Arbequina Ice Cream.
The restaurant also features a liquor, wine, and cocktail program. Cocktails include Call Me Cosmo, Club Clover, Flip the Script, Golden Era, She’s With Me, Rosey Kush, along with Martini Service.
The cost is $175 per person, with beverages a la carte. If a reservation is not cancelled within 72 hours, the restaurant will charge $100 per guest (no refund policy). Table limits are 120 minutes, and no video or photography is allowed. Phone calls can be taken outside the restaurant in a hallway.
“Our team is excited to introduce what we believe to be a one-of-a-kind and hyper-sensory fine-dining experience found nowhere else in Detroit, where the sophistication and quality of food, tableside service, and ambiance will be unmatched,” says Sasson. “Stepping into Cash Only Supper Club, you’ll feel a nostalgic, yet modern, sense of time, where the atmosphere is intimate, the crowd is posh, and you can actually taste the glamour. We believe there will be no better place to celebrate your special occasions.”
The 1,500-square-foot “hidden treasure,” designed by Heirloom Hospitality Group, seats a total of 52 guests, including six spots at the bar. Comprised mostly of two-top and four-top tables, the space includes “sultry” lighting and a state-of-the-art audio system. The décor was curated and inspired by both the Art Deco and Hollywood glam eras.
Each night, guests will enjoy live entertainment experiences featuring local and regional singers and musicians. Detroit artist Ben Sharkey and his band will headline opening weekend. A strict fancy cocktail to black-tie dress code will be enforced, and a dinner jacket will be required for all gentlemen.
Initially, hours of operation will be Friday and Saturday evenings, 5 p.m. to midnight. Reservations are required and may be made through the Prime + Proper Resy. The restaurant is located at 1145 Griswold St.
Founded by Sasson in 2017, Heirloom Hospitality Group in Detroit owns and operates Townhouse Birmingham, Townhouse Detroit, Prime & Proper, and Cash Only Supper Club, with additional concepts in development launching later this year.
In mid-January, a male customer in his 50s died after instigating an altercation with a security guard at Cash Only, the previous establishment in the lower level. During the scuffle, the patron started stabbing the guard. From there, the guard, in an act of self-defense, fired a gun and killed the patron, according to multiple sources.
