Built in 1903 as the Twentieth Century Club, this Mission-style building of red brick and white sandstone was the headquarters of a women's civic group until it disbanded during the Great Depression. It became the Russian Bear Restaurant in the 1930s and 1940s but then closed. After the club and the adjoining Gem Theatre were moved five blocks because of the downtown stadium-building project, developer Chuck Forbes restored and reopened the club as an upscale restaurant and 200-seat dinner theater. Stained glass panels, ornate chandeliers, fireplaces and Pewabic tile were rescued from the downtown YWCA building before it was demolished for the stadiums. It's a fascinating piece of the new Theatre District.
