About

Founded in the early 1900s by a pair of Belgian immigrants, Detroit's east side landmark Cadieux Café is carrying on old world traditions. People come for European beers and bowls of steaming hot mussels dressed in a variety of sauces, but stay for the obscure sport called featherbowling. Cadieux is one of only four locations in the world — outside of Belgium — that hosts a league. Since its days as a Prohibition-era speakeasy, the Cadieux Cafe has been a social hub for Metro Detroit's Belgian population. Flemish culture flourishes at the Cadieux, which is or has been the unofficial headquarters for an array of clubs promoting pastimes from across the pond, including pigeon racing, archery, bicycling, darts and, of course, feather bowling.

The Cadieux Cafe has been owned by the Devos family since 1962. They’ve been careful to maintain the place’s old-world charm and traditions, but they've also made it more accessible to the masses – particularly the 21-35 year-old demographic – by bringing in Live musical acts and staying open until 2:00 am Wednesday - Saturday.
