The History

The Katz Club Diner makes its home in the historic 1949 O'Mahony Diner car (serial number 2154) that originally operated as the Zephyr Diner in Berwyck, Pennsylvania.

It was transported from its original location to Cleveland Heights in 1997, where it was painstakingly restored and joined with the Centennial Diner, now home to the Speakeasy. Originally located in Atlantic City, N.J., the Centennial car is an excellent example of the Mountain View Diner Co. style; the pre-World War II diner models usually incorporated late Art Deco styling and, according to the company motto, were "built to last a lifetime."

Bar Car

The Bar Car at the Katz Club was the result of one question, what is our kind of bar? It had to be a sleek, cozy, hand crafted, Cary Grant gibson in a wifi world kind of place. A Raymond Chandler mahogany bar top mystery with ice tinking in a highball glass sort of joint. Traditional and familiar, but worlds away from anything that happened before five o'clock.
