SUPPER CLUB EXPERIENCE

The first supper club in the United States was allegedly established in Beverly Hills, California, by Milwaukee, Wisconsin native Lawrence Frank.

Supper clubs became popular during the 1930s and 1940s, although some establishments that later became supper clubs had previously gained notoriety as prohibition road houses.

The supper club is a Wisconsin institution, considered a “destination” where patrons would spend the whole evening, from cocktail hour to dinner featuring nostalgic favorites like relish trays, prime rib and ice cream cocktails, with nightclub-style entertainment after dinner.  

The Five O’Clock Steakhouse has been open since 1946, described by Travel and Leisure as a “classic supper club setting with a Mad Man vibe.”
