PJ’s Lager House, a Corktown fixture since 1914 when it opened as a neighborhood bakery and restaurant. It masqueraded as a furniture store during Prohibition (ask PJ to show you the secret password slot in the basement door), but emerged a beer garden the minute the 21st Amendment was passed repealing Prohibition. Prior to being renamed The Lager House in 1965, 1254 Michigan Ave. was known as the Doemer Beer Garden, Doemer Brothers Tavern, and The Doemer Tavern. The bakery/restaurant/bar served up great food and drink to city pols, Corktown neighbors, unionists, bookies, bettors and sports fans alike. In the 1990's with a new era of punk and attitude. The kitchen was replaced with a sound system and the Lager House became known as a hangout for bands such as the White Stripes and the Von Bondies. PJ brought back the kitchen with Detroit Attitude and a dash of New Orleans flavor. Handmade Hamburgers from fresh, ground steak, made from scratch Salad Dressings, Veggie burgers made from house made falafel and the gumbo is the real thing!
