Bringing Back the Past

The Silver Grille

Restored ceiling of the Silver Grille once the place for ladies to have lunch at Higbee's Department store in Cleveland.

Higbee's opened the Silver Grille in 1931 on the tenth floor of their flagship department store located in the Terminal Tower Complex in Cleveland. It brings back the memory of the larger then life department stores of the mid-twentieth century in the US. Floor after floor of products and the delight of stopping for a break and a light lunch. A shopping experience that is now lost. The Ritz Carlton in Cleveland has restored the Silver Grille and rents out the space for special events, so you can still experience the art deco beauty of the room.
