    Great place for a Detroit wedding! We squeezed 110 people in. The garden was a lovely place for a ceremony. The upstairs has a wonderful historic feel. We loved the idea of getting married at a place with such deep roots in the Detroit art scene. The people we worked with were very conscientious, flexible and responsive. Felt they were always working for us. We did a lot of looking around and the Scarab Club was clearly the best place in our price range.

    We used the Scarab Club as our ceremony location. We had hoped for and planned an outdoor wedding on October 1, but hey, it's Michigan. We had to move things inside the morning of the wedding and everything went even better than we could have hoped for. The cermeony was certainly helped by the better acoustics for our violinist and guitarist (and probably for the officiant too). Least of all, there was a great art display in the gallery) where it was relocated to - very nice pictures! Staff was very helpful in planning and providing spaces for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready and for the groomsmen to relax. It's no secret that as a very old building, you have to be flexible with space available and understand that the full suite of amenities you might find elsewhere won't be here. What you are supporting though, is the mission of an arts and cultural organization in Detroit. Loved it.

    I love the Scarab Club - it is a beautiful old building with a gorgeous courtyard. There is so much history here, and the art shows are usually quite good.

    I got married here and they did a great job. The prices were very reasonable, especially for an open bar. Staff did a wonderful job moving our outdoor ceremony indoors due to rain, and all of our guests had a fantastic time and commented on the beautiful, unique space.
