During the 70&#39;s and 80&#39;s the Club operated under a series of other names. Many remember The Winery, La Cave, or AJ&#39;s on the Park.</p><p>In 1985 the famous club closed and remained empty until in late 2005.</p></blockquote><p>Like a lot of places in Detroit, it was left empty for a long time. The plaster cracked, the ceiling leaked, but that all changed in 2005 when Paul Howard and Scott Lowell began the renovation of the shuttered club.</p><p>In this video, the owner of the building that houses Cliff Bell&#39;s talks about the restoration of the club.</p><p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D30H9-sqUiA</p><p>This video was shot by Lindsey Smith, and produced by Juan Freitez.
